This morning I lost the bike in deep sand, it was fairly early on the day. It wasn’t a high speed event, but I got my right foot trapped under the pannier. It twisted through 180°, putting a lot of strain on my hip, knee and ankle. Nothing broken, so after a 10 minute breather there was nothing to do but very back on the horse.
It doesn’t do your confidence much good, but over the day I felt it slowly returning. I’ve kept everything moving but things have stiffened up this evening, is always the way. I’ll see how I am in the morning.
We still made 200km today, which is good going. The scenery is still epic and Mongolia remains a highlight of the trip so far, but I’ll be glad to get back onto a proper road! I can always get up in the morning and say…..
