Day 64. 17 June. 206 km. 8.5 hrs

Dong Van to Cao Bang.

My route was south to Meo Vac and DT217 to Bao Lac. From here I found a road not on my maps that cut across to Cao Bang, slow going on road DT204

I left early in the fog and rain, after only a few km I came off on a particularly slippery part of the road. It was quiet strange as I had ridden across this stretch two times already and knew how bad it was. Both front and the rear wheels slid sideways from under me, I can only think there must have been a ridge left there by a truck for that to happen.

As I was aware of it slippery I was riding slowly, but still banged my knee hard and cut my foot.

After 50km I found a roadside water pipe and cleaned myself up. The rest of the day there were patches of bad road and weather.

Also great views were ruined by the poor visibility.
