Weather

Overcast with a little rain mixed in. Fairly warm. Almost no wind.

Properties

Bike lane along the main road to Tammisaari, where I had planned a visit. But because of a late departure I chose to shortcut the route via Krokby and Tenala. Hereafter a stretch on the main road without bike lane. Short piece on a gravel road along the main road. Then a gravel road with spells of tarmac away from the main road. The last stretch down to the lake of Kirakanjärvi on a small narrow gravel path.

Remarks

Very late departure from the camp site in Hanko (around 6 pm), as I was not fit to cycle before, due to a too heavy beer consumption the evening and night before. So my trip north had a troublesome start, and I made a shorter stage than planned. I had planned to go to Salo, about 39 kilometres longer, but because of darkness I had to camp at a kind of camp school on the shore of a lake.
