Day 3: Zygi - Arakapas
During the entire campaign, the attendants woke up according to the schedule: at 6 o'clock in the morning, the attendants wake up, prepare breakfast and wake up the rest at 7 o'clock. This morning was no exception. At 6 o'clock, by the way, it is still dark, until 7 o'clock you can see the rising sun - this is a beautiful sight)
In the center of the town of Zygi, next to which we spent the night, there is a cafe where you can ask for the password for Wi-Fi, if you ask very plaintively :) Dima got us the password and the whole group propped up the wall of the cafe, buried in their phones for 20 minutes.
From this point we turned off the coastal road and began to climb into the mountains. In the end, we had to climb 2000m to Mount Olymbos.
Under the road, we turned a little wrong and hit the dam.
Basically, there is a low forest here, it was about the same in Turkey.
A small halt, check the map.
Dima rode on a rigid, but the absence of a fork with a shock absorber made itself felt only on a broken road in the demilitarized zone, where we would be closer to the end of the trip, and then only for a couple of hours. In general, in Cyprus you can ride on rigid forks, this does not cause any special problems.
Grisha says something
Micropass where we met guys from Ukraine on a scooter. We talked a little - they often come to Cyprus. Generally speaking, there are a lot of Russian speakers in Cyprus. Many also moved here permanently from Ukraine and Russia.
We found water, poured it into eggplants. In general, there were no big problems with water, but compared to Turkey, water is a little less common here.
In Cyprus, solar panels were very actively used, even such a small folding solar battery quickly charges a smartphone (in 3 hours, subject to direct sunlight). My collapsible solar panel broke down at the end of the trip - it looks like the wires have moved away at the bends. The same thing happened with Grisha's battery. After this trip, I can say with confidence that we need a monopanel - from one part. So it will last more than 1 week :)
Telephone booth :) You probably won't find such ones in Ukraine.
A small descent flew by quickly. At the end of the descent, we drove into a quarry, from which we had to get out on foot - there was no asphalt, but there were medium-sized stones under our feet.
No comment :)
Climb about 800 meters, drove about 40 km.
