Cruising Paved Roads
After a successful and fun toga party in Nanyuki (there were some questionable interpretations of togas but who’s to judge really?) where the only thing that was badly behaved where the British soldiers sharing our accommodation space, a non-race day gave the riders a chance to “cruise” along to camp today. The paved roads were blissful (bumpy with potholes in some sections), the weather cool, the sun shining and of course the hills were “rolling”! There was a feeling of being back in Ethiopia with the lush green vegetation and banana plantations throughout the ride today. Lunch came along quickly and was followed by a very “sweet” and long descent towards our turnoff into Savage Wilderness Safaris. The land they own sits next to a river, has grass everywhere, a swimming pool, white water rafting and puppies. The early finish (due to the paved roads) allowed everyone to enjoy the area, swim, clean, go rafting, eat and we were treated to a rugby match on the television tonight as well as a yummy barbecue of pork chops! Tomorrow, we hit the thriving metropolis of Nairobi but first we need to get through a 40km police escort into the city so it definitely can make for a long and interesting day.
