Okraj Pass – mountains teach humility

The plan was: go to Karpacz and Kowary by car, and then start riding on bicycle and attack Okraj Pass. But I changed this plan and decided to… ride to Kowary from home, then attack Okraj and just go back. This trip was long and difficult. Distance was shorter than on 305 km trip, but mountains… they teach humility, because it’s a completely different ride. I started ride real uphill after 122 kilometers… And totally damaged my previous results! It was fantastic, also downhill was very exciting and faaaaast. But after that I decided to attack another mountain: short, because only about 3,5 kilometers, but with 10-15% elevation. It was horrible and destroyed me mentally and physically: 34T on front 28T on back was not enough. Returning home was difficult, about 90-100 km to the wind. But… it was worth it!
