And Sarnitsa looks deceptively close

The camp ended. And with the children left and some of the other instructors. I could relax, but peace and quiet were gone from Chatama. For the weekend and the upcoming festival Beglika place was full of people. I used Saturday afternoon to work over bike and put in good trim a another bolt and […]

Old hill, new bike

Along Iskar River. Selfie on the banks of the Danube and go back.

I slept a 27-8 kilometers from the banks of the Danube. When I reached the bridge over the Iskar River near the village Staroseltsi, I regretted that I had not come here to spend the night. Beautiful river, beautiful meadows. Road Knezha – Krushovene is nice. Straight, with little traffic and a nice shade. Since […]

During a meeting of organizations related to biking tourism and project EuroVelo, I got the idea of cycling along the Iskar River from Sofia to the Danube.
