Properties

City roads in Jyväskylä. I tried to manage on the comprehensive cykle road system with many bridges and tunnels for bikes, but I lost my way a couple of times. Today's rest day was not dedicated to sightseeing but rather to solve two problems, so my objection was different, and finding my way was not easy. Signposting can definitely be improved.

Remarks

This rest day was planned as the others, with the aim to rest and do some sightseeing, but I had two important tasks. My mobile phone had to be repaired/changed, as it had become wet on the day before, and I could not bear to lose the contact to my dear ones at home. I bought a new one at Midare oy. Next task was to have my shin splints treated at Jyväskylä central hospital. The physician did not rule me out but prescribed a penicillin treatment. It meant a cycle trip to the hostel in order to get my passport (to avoid the costs for the examination) and to an all-night open farmacy in the city centre. I had dinner at a pizzeria not far from the hostel.
