I've been riding since 8am and it's now 9pm and I've only managed 80 miles. I'm ten miles away from the beach where I'm going to camp for the night but I'm having a rest as I have to backtrack 1.4 miles. It's been hot, hilly and very bumpy, I'm on my 6th litre of water. I've got to cover 60 miles per day for the next 3 weeks in order to catch my flight from Delhi. Today has been tough going trying to get ahead of schedule. There are another 200 miles of mountains and hills before I reach the plains where I'm hoping to cover more ground and have a couple of days off This poor little pup had my ration of oats this morning and wanted to tag along.
