Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in Nepal on Thursday, 10th-November-2016. Mugling to Pithauli. 49 miles. It was a really hard ride this morning for the first 25 miles or so, the road surface was non-existent and it took me until lunchtime to complete!
After those initial hard 20 miles, I’d had enough, and by the time I’d reached Narayangadh I was going to stop, but it was only 1 pm, and I thought that was just a little too early, so after stopping for something to eat and drink I continued on.
The roads improved a lot after Narayangadh, also all the mountains disappeared, and the terrain was a lot more flatter now!
I continued on for a while longer, but I’d really had enough, so when I saw a sign for some “jungle island resort”, I followed them. Something I very rarely do; I normally just wait until I see something on the road I’m on!
And I could see why I don’t normally deviate from my route! 4 miles later, down some track, I found my resort! The trouble was the road started off ok and just got worse; the trouble is when do you stop and say no, enough is enough and turn back; it could just be around the next corner, so what do you do? You just have to keep going!
