Arriving in Cisternino and eventually finding Basil & Liz was great. Clearly we all celebrated but the celebrations were 24 hours before the event! Despite waking up feeling a little hung over from the good food and wine consumed last night I must cycle off to Brindisi today to complete the task that I set myself. The statistics for yesterday’s ride from Matera to Cisternino are as follows; Cycling time: 4 hrs 38 mins 50 secs
Distance: 90.23 kms
Average speed: 19.4 kms/hr
Maximum speed: 41.4 kms/hr
Eurovelo 5 distance: 3,256.4 kms
We joined the crowds last night wandering around the beautiful town centre of Cisternino, ate in a local restaurant and then retired to the roof terrace for a night cap….
