We got up slightly earlier this morning as yesterday was a bit excessive!
We had a lovely breakfast of fried potato cakes and frankfurters made for us by Jana. We then had a chat about the days destination and slowly got packed up.
We had made the decision to cut the journey to Tallinn in half and stop at a holiday resort on the coast recommended to us by Igor. So we set off North towards Pärnu around 12ish and found our way out of Riga. After only 15 miles we had a little issue with a couple of Police Officers! Something to do with speed I think and were on our way again.
Lunch was soon after in a small bistro just off the main road and from there it was non-stop to Pärnu. The road surface was extremely good and with thick forests on either side the ride was very pleasant. There was a few frozen lakes around as well with the odd nutter sat fishing in the middle of some!
We crossed through the Latvian/Estonian border without even stopping and arrived at our destination at around 6pm. A very helpful couple guided us in as we were slightly lost upon arrival!
We relaxed in our ample hotel room for a couple of hours before venturing out into the Baltic conditions outside to find a bite to eat.
118 miles ridden today.
