Friday 4th October 2013 – Sibenik to Makarska.

Sibenik to Makarska. 84 miles.

Been cycling with Albert from Sheffield this afternoon and began to wish I wasn’t it was all me me me! He was a tri athlete and your typical sporty type! What he hadn’t done I don’t know it seemed he’d done and was good at every type of sport going and to be fair to him he was in his sixty’s and still looked pretty fit, but didn’t he like to talk about it! He also seemed to have very little respect for other road users and would quite happily ride along side me and get in every other road users way and think it was them who was in the wrong when they tooted him, even though he was in the middle of the road!
luckily for me, despite him being such a great athlete he only cycled about 40 miles a day and stopped before I did as he’d done nearly 60 miles, thank god for that I thought I was going to have to spend the night with him (not literally, but you know what I mean!) When we parted he said thanked me for riding with him and said it was the best days riding he’d had in the 2 weeks he’d been here, which I felt really guilty about considering I just wanted to get rid of him! He did also say to me that he didn’t like his own company! If he didn’t like it why would I!!
Only cycled another five miles or so before I stopped myself!
