overcast 20 °C

5th DAY:24.8.2009

After breakfast I went again to the lake. It is peacefull and beautyfull place in nature. there is a small road arround the lake which is suitable for jogging and walk. From this lake there is possible to hike to tatra mountains.
My plan was to get slovely moving back to Bratislava. This was imposible in this weather althou it was not raining yet (weather forcast was announcing rain for today). I decided to move lower and western. First I took small electrical train to Štrba. This one in at least 30 years old, but well preserved and in great conditions. I dont think that it is slower than new one.
After Štrba I entered nnormal train and drove arround 80km western to village called Kralovany. Here is nothing to see, so I decided to cycle till village Turčianske Teplice. It was already 12:30 so I had to go on my way. On the way I had a little accident with carrier because I lost 1 screw. It was imposible to cycle further so I had to solve situation some how. I noticed, that screw is same dimension as the one on bottle-holder. I had 2 bottle-holders, so it was no any problem to take one down and use only one from now on. This saved me and I cycled in direction Turčianske Teplice with beautyfull Velka Fatra mountains on my right. Here are many skiing resorts and it is possible to ski in winter months. Road was mostly upphill with smaller downhills. Had to pedal hard to get on finish before dark.
I found a nice pension Panda for fair price 23,00 eur. I was also eating there delicious Chineese food, maybe little expencive (14,00 eur with beer). Because I made in 4 hours almost 70 km I was sleepy and tired. Went to bed early.
