Saturday very early in the morning we left from Bucharest, sleepy but overly excited. At around 11.00 we arrived in Sibiu, ready for the ride! This time I was better equipped than the previous ride to Paltinu – I had a beautiful cycling jersey and my own lovely helmet. The bike was still rented, however it was perfectly sized for me.
Saturday at noon. Here I was, in a beautiful park in Câmpina, at the base of the first hill I was going to climb on a road cycle. Equipped with a rented bike, a borrowed helmet and an improvised cycling kit (only the bibs were designed with that purpose in mind), but also with a lot of enthusiasm and a bit of anxiety.
