Today we were going to eat the kilometres. Today Clement’s back wheel caused more problems which saw us spend 3 hours in a little bike workshop, and, 20km later, limp uphill to a little shop to comtemplate further steps.

The eating of kilometres never really got started. We stopped after 10km to eat and tighten Clement’s back wheel that was wobbling. Then, leaving the village, the problem got worse. A few new inner-hub parts and 3 hours later, we left, only to experience the problems return when the road started climbing what seemed like a cliffface. Tomorrow our paths will part for now. Clement will hitch a ride to the next big town, and possibly 400km to the next big city. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for him.

    Hm, not a good mechanic, that is why. He has an inappropriate finger ring. XD

    PS. Noticed now – he was the creator of the multiple gear fixie at the left of the picture? – who knows… XD
