Weather

The first part of the day quite sunny, later more clouds and from mid afternoon steady rain the rest of the day. Not as windy and slightly warmer.

Properties

Very steep and narow dirt track along E Govl (the gable). Minor roads through Mjels to the ferry Hardeshoej-Ballebro and further along minor roads via Blans, Rufas and Bojskov. At Fiskbaek we made a detour due to a closed road via Adsboel. In Graasten we first along forest trails to the Margrethe Lake and back into town. On bike lanes into the town centre. Then on a dirt track to the peninsula of Fiskenaes. We went the same way back to Holm, except a detour via Mikkelshoej in order to avoid the muddy stretch at E Govl.

Remarks

We chose to follow the route via Rufas and Bojskov in order to avoid strong traffic on the road between Ullerup and the motor way.
