28th of July. I’ve got a skeeter on my peter.
I get up to a swarm of mosquitoes which I don’t seem to loose all day. I stop for breakfast and they swarm me again. So I ride on further and try again, same thing happens again and I try a third time same again. I have a high plateau to ride over at 370m up this far north there’s snow drifts still in the hill sides and yet every time I come to a climb I swarmed by mosquitoes. I stop to camp and they surround me fast but I’m too tired to continue as I have covered 110km today on rather hilly terrain. As I have been crossing between fjords which has meant alot of up and down. The road is terrible in places, really rough which makes it hard work.
