Cycling with depression day 13


Charlotte, Button and I are cycling the Danish Baltic Bicycle Route. (Day0, Day1, Day2, Day3, Day4, Day5, Day6, Day7, Day8, Day9, Day10, Day11, Day12)

Today I had headwinds again, and my whole body seems to ask for a break. I even had nosebleeds the last days. So I guess I will slow down a little do 2 shorter days. That will mean I will not be able to finish the whole tour, but I guess everything I accomplished with my mental health still is something.

The night was so warm I did not even bother to reinflate the sleeping pad in the middle of the night. I was not feeling cold and I did not mind the hard ground.

But before I went to sleep I had to snap a picture:

I got up early today and was just starting to pack, when they started to mow the lawn at the tent space. The big lawn mower was driven close by my tent quite often, I actually was feeling scared. Then I did laundry and left the campground at 10:30 am. We cycled hills up and down as always and I stopped at a supermarket, where I bought some more snacks, even though they did not have the ones I hoped for.

When I was packing up later, after I had eaten some of my snacks, my cellphone battery was close to dying. So I connected it to the powerbank and got asked about Charlotte by a nice man. He could not believe she was a bamboo bicycle. So I forgot to take a picture.

We cycled on through hills and headwinds, until I found this nice bench in a small town.

The headwind did not get better and I got very exhausted so I stopped one campground before the one I was planning on, but I wasn’t sure, how I would manage those additional 10km when the map even showed hills. It normally says everything is flat, even when it isn’t. I guess they compare everything to the Alps… or other high mountains. I would prefer if they adjusted that.

Anyways, this campground seems nice, they a round tent-space right next to the entrance. At first I had it all to myself, but then a german family joined me. I guess they never pitched that tent before. 😉

We cycled today:

~40 km

Total km on this tour so far: ~462km

money spent:

121 DKK for the campground

112.90 DKK at the supermarket

I will be writing again tomorrow so you can pedal along with us!

If there is anything you would like to know about, please do not hesitate to ask. I am happy to include your interest in my reports if possible.

keep exploring and smiling
