22.06. 88,4 km, very hot, 5 h 03, avs 17, 5 sleept in a small restaurant.
23.06. first truck 30 km to Bolu. it was so hot and a long way uphill that we were glad not to cycle. by accident we had lunch at Filiz/Barilla headquater, the wellknown noodle company. second truck on this day 10 km short before Gerede. during this trip by truck suddenly there was no more fuel
but we were lucky. another truck sold us 10 liters diesel, but than it is necessary that the tank must be vented. another truck driver helped. after half an hour we continued our trip by truck. we were lucky a second time. the driver missed the exit so he took us further uphill than expected :-) we were very thankful !! we gave him 25 TYL and cigarettes. in the evening we looked for a camping site but no possibilty. so we stayed at the hotel Esentepe in Gerede; again a very steep hill but glad to have a warm shower and a delicious dinner.
