More rain and storm in the night didn’t allow me a good sleep but when I finally woke up, it looked pretty good again. Still pretty cool though.
I got on the bike rather early and started my last cycling day in Wales. The landscape was changing soon when I came closer to the coast. The first bigger village I crossed was Caernarfon and it was full with tourists. It also had an impressive fortress at the harbor.
Then I went on to my final destination today: Bangor. I arrived here just after 60km of cycling and had a lot of time left. First stop was the train station. There was even a human being I could speak to to buy the ticket to Edinburgh. This was easy; also got the bike registered without any problems. On the other side of the road was a small hotel so I checked for a room. They had one for 35 pounds. Great! That makes it even easier tomorrow.
After all this taken care of I went to the town which didn’t have so much to offer except a funny old pier. It even cost 50 pence to get in. In there you couldn’t do much more than drinking tea but it was a nice walk anyway.
Seems that they have a (proportionally) big University here. So I took a bike ride there and got a late lunch at a student’s pub. Then back to the hotel to get my stuff organized for tomorrow.
That was a relaxed day again. The fixed tire didn’t make any new problems but my gear hub is making a lot of noise now. Even when putting little force on the pedals. I don’t think that can be normal.. Unfortunately that part is impossible to fix. Something I have to take care of later.
