On the Road in Kythera
What will we do in tiny Kythera for 3 whole days!? Surely we'll be bored. Surely we will cycle all her roads in one day. Ha! double Ha! Kythera has presented us with the most impressive grades yet. On one particularly steep climb Basil managed to glimpse 15%. This makes me wonder how steep the climb was when he couldn't manage a glimpse. These grades renewed our thankfulness for front panniers as they may well be what prevents us from tipping over backwards. Thankfully there also seemed to be no end to mountainous windy roads to explore. Some of them even beckoned us on well into the night.
