Bosnia and Herzegovina: Mountain biking from Prokoško Lake to Fojnica and back

We've been on the road for 3 days now and today it was time to start cycling and so our true 3rd Mountain biking trip in BiH began. Weather wasn't as clear as we hoped so we decided to take less scenic road to Fojnica, starting with 22 kilometres long descend. In Fojnica we stopped for a couple of drinks and then it was time to return back. Same mileage, only up this time, for more than 1000 vertical meters. It wasn't too hard so we were back at our hosts quite quickly.

In the afternoon we all had different agendas. Some of us attacked some bottled apples and we were all in the great mood for the rest of the day.

Previous days of this trip: 13888 and 13887
Previous mountain biking trips to BiH in 2016 (Day 1) and 2015 (Day 1Day 2 and Day 3).

Time for some breakfast and besides the sausages everything was locally made or grown

Our home for three days with Blue Horse

20 mountain bikes arrived a little past midnight

Since I had a flat tyre yesterday I decided to put it in the hands of the local guy, who will take care of it instead of me. All the tools to remove the tyre were in the bike, so it was quickly removed.
