First experience outside Finland
My first bikeholiday ever outside Finland. Very nice experience, above all for organization of Hotel Dory, the best bike hotel ever, lot of new things to experience. I take mostly cappuccino (first week) and cappuccino light (second week) groups.
Uphills were long and steep for me, but when you take them in easy speed theyre were not that bad. But more than 1000 metres up in a day is something you remember in your legs. It is still very nice to win yourself and stay alive every day. Downhills were more difficult for me. I have never been confident in downhills, but in these 11 days I have learn a lot how to do downhills. I am not an expert yet, but at least som progress has been done.
Scenery on the roads were mostly amazing. Lot ot nice surrounding, valleys and hills, nice little towns, beautiful castles and all this in colours of autumn. I mostly ride with my finnish friends. We also made our own biketrips on "freedays", With one of them couple from Canada ride with us. They were very nice couple and drive very nicely (like we prefer in Finland at least :))
