We left desert camp number three and continued our route along the coast of the Red Sea. The riders enjoyed a third day of a cool tailwind and relatively flat open roads. The distance today being only 100km, some riders went past the lunch stop by 9am and arrived at camp before 11am. Other riders decided to take it easy and stop for a coke along the way while a couple others took a slight detour and added 10km to their day.
Altogether, it is another good day to be on the road for most riders. Especially considering that camp tonight is on a beautiful beach in a town called Safaga where riders can do a bit of shopping, surf the net, get in a shower. So for now, spirits are high and everyone is enjoying a bit of unexpected relaxation.
