We got our bikes out of the storage shed at the Red Boat and tried to get out of Stockholm as it
was difficult to follow the bike path. A lady who had the sun in her eyes ran me into a rail which
gave me an arm burn, but at least I didn't crash. We stopped for breakfast at a bakery as opposed
to the McDonalds next to it-good choice! The biking was awesome-nice bike paths, rolling hills,
beautiful scenery and the wind at our backs! Everything was painted "barn" red-barns, houses,
schools, churches! Aaron has done such a great job mapping our route, as so much of the
countryside is made up of water. We had to take a ferry to get from one side of the road to the
other. I didn't realize Sweden had so much water inland.
We had lunch outdoors consisting of pizza, salad and soda. We had to share the pizza since it was so large. We arrived in Nykoping after a fun day of biking 118K.
The Wiktoria Hotel had a unique feature. The bathroom was so small that the sink was movable so you could remove the water spout and it became the shower head. By moving the sink over by the toilet, we then had room to take our shower without having to sit on the toilet to take our shower! We hung out in the breakfast room downstairs in the hotel since they had free hot chocolate and coffee. I had a tuna salad for supper which had a whole can of tuna and a heap of vegetables in it-delicious.
