The first day of cycling was complicated by all sorts of things – a late start due to landing so late the previous night (actually, the same day!), a visit from Variety for which we had been given an earlier time and a prolonged boat cruise to a temple which was a Sri Lankan hour, ie 2 hours.
Then we had a very strange fish curry for lunch. This was followed by being measured for the bikes, changing into cycling gear and all that entails and actually starting.
It was near enough 50 kms during which I was pleasantly surprised that I can actually cycle, albeit slower than anyone else.
However, we then arrived late to Galle so did not get the promised city tour and we arrived to our hotel on the beach at Ahangama too late to enjoy it. Nonetheless, the gins and tonics were much appreciated, even if they were, by their own admission, a bit cheap! In this video, I explain all. Enjoy!
