Day 143: Metsova – Ioannina(52km) – Distance travelled so far 8,204 km “Unexspected half day cycle”

Our original route was to cycle up along the east coast of the Adriatic Sea travelling through Albania, Montenegro and on up into Croatia. Knowing that the Champions League Final was due to be played in Rome, we decided to head for the west coast of Greece to get the ferry to Italy.

Our planned destination today was was the ferry port of Igoumenitsa, as we thought it was managable 110km away.

After a tough 8km climb in the searing heat, it was all downhill to the lakeside town of Ioannina.


We love freewheeling

Upon arriving into Ioannina we came across a signpost for Igoumenitsa…..92kms!! Our predictions were far out so we decided to call it a day and stay in Ioannina for the night. No complaints from us, as we were enjoying Greece very much.
