Day 6 : Sihanoukville to Kep. 133 km, Saddle Time 5hrs 49 mins, Avg Temp 34 deg

Not the best day for the Yarnies. Karen hates hills and the first 18km were some big ones ! Not the best psychological start. Then her last 20km were on dirt tracks and construction roads with a slow puncture. That was hard work ! Paul had a flat tyre at km 30, and then fell off his bike trying to cross a railway line on a dirt track road. Tomorrow could be a painful day for him, but he’s OK and made of strong stuff.

Highlights today (yes there are some) was the great run towards lunch – 25km of amazing side roads through small villages and farmland, with the wind behind us for a change. We even saw Thailand off the coast. Lunch in Kampot was delicious – Riki Tiki Tavi. And when we got to the hotel we had the most wonderful view of the beach, with most of us having a massage on the poolside terrace listening to the waves. Well deserved as we know tomorrow is going to be a long tough day.
