Fascing my first small mountain before Calafat, I decided to leave my running shoes on a motorway service area in order to optimize the weight of my luggage. And afterwoods I could directly notice the difference.
On the other hand, yesterday on the road from Bot to Valdealgorfa I could realize what it means riding the bike without closed shoes in coldness. Hence my toes got so cold in the sandals that I felt obliged to improvise and to wrap my toes into my pyjamas.
To sum up, everything is relative and you are always looking for this what you don’t have. For this dilemma, I am going to search a solution in the desert.
