Climbing the Appenines - day 29 of cycling Ukraine to Lisbon

January 2020 · 2 min read · Parma

Previous day I spent cycling from Modena to Parma. So, this morning I woke up at Georgio's flat - he hosted me on my way from Ukraine to Portugal.

Yesterday's evening.

We had a breakfast in the cafee near his house, after that he went to his job.And me - went to the city centre for sightseeing, with my bike and all luggage.

Parma wasn't so interesting, as previous cities, but still nice and some historical buildings gained my attention. Unfortunately, the citadelle was closed.

On early afternoon I continued my cycling. Saw 2 beavers in the canal close to the road.

After 10 km entered the Appenines - it's impossible to get to the coast without crossing it. The ascend was almost all of my cycling day. The weather was sunny and hot until the dusk. Good that I could find spring cold, clean and tasty water.

Of course, cycle climbing is harder then my previous activities - it was almost plain all 28 days.

- Can i camp near this church?

- Ok, no problem

So, my wild camping spot was close to the road, but in the evening there aren't any cars there. And the scenery was beautiful. The only problem was the wind - it became heavy and cold, I had to wear all my clothes. Coocking the dinner was slow - the wind blowed on my gas stove...
