We had briefly considered taking a shortcut, a gravel road over the mountains that would've saved us about 50 kilometers. When we reached the crossroads where the shortcut would've started a car happened to come by.
"How's that road you came from?" we asked. "Very steep... and very foggy." Having already climbed some pretty steep hills we decided to follow the first advice given to us by all other bike travelers: stay on the ring road.
