Tampere Camping Härmälä
A good road without bike lane, but with only light traffic out of Forssa. Some trouble finding a perfect place to eat my lunch packet. After Urjala station an even quieter and pleasant road to Toijala. From there on a bike lane along a trunk road. When it ends, I have to cycle in heavy traffic on short pieces alternating with a quiet following road until that runs into the trunk road to Tampere. After Lempäälä the excellent system of wide tarmaced bike roads begins. At a huge junction I easily find through the suburb of Härmälä down to the camp site at the lakeside a few kilometres south of Tampere. Traffically an almost perfect stage in nice weather.
Today I eventually caught up with my plans of cycling from Hanko to Tampere in three days after the delay and short distance on the first Finnish stage. Morning stop at the church in Koijärvi and some trouble finding a perfect place to have my lunch on the shore of the lake of Kokonjärvi, just because I wanted to be, where I had originally planned to pitch my tent on the day before. But the good roads, the nice weather and the rather flat terrain meant that the stage did not feel that long. After a good meal in a restaurant in Sääksjärvi I arrived at Tampere's camp site in daylight.
