Rain is forecast for most of the day. Shell is in no rush. I push her along. We normally leave at 8.00 - 9.00 am. I have us on the bikes before 7.30 am. Today’s ride is around 65 km.

A few hours later we stop again for a not quite as bad coffee. We are over halfway to Zagreb. The distance melts on flat roads. The rain stops and the clouds clear. We roll into Zagreb. The city has an excellent cycling network. From the outskirts all the way to the centre. We are early, not surprising considerin
