Today was a day of flat, straight, small roads along the beach with a 3-hour interlude of Sumatra-steep slopes that popped up out of nowhere. It was a day of food on the beach and chats – on the beach during the day, and at breakfast in Cilacap.

The coast is windswept with big waves crashing onto the sand from the Indian Ocean, and endless beaches. I stopped at several little collections of restaurants on the beach, watching the waves as I sipped on my iced coconut. The roads were good, and I enjoyed cycling on the flat. On looking at the terrain view of Google maps, I realise now that tomorrow will be a sweaty affair getting to the base of the volcano pass – there are lots of bumps to the north of where I am. It’s all good training.. ☺

    It’s great imagining these far off places so rarely seen, so different from home. Good luck on the tough climb ahead.
