It was obviously Cesar who connected me to the Bermuda Cycling Club and enabling me to join their Sunday morning ride across the island. Different groups with specific targets are leaving from “The Flag Pole” in Hamilton sharp at the early morning hours. No option, I had to get there!

6am I killed the alarm clock and half an hour later my butt embraced the saddle to Hamilton to join the group. Sailmaster Rainer got up early and helped me to get the bike into the dinghy.

I was pretty much in time to join the group and although the tour went back to Saint George, it was good fun and excitement. While the peloton returned back to Hamilton via St. David’s Head, I dropped out just at the right time the Bermuda Peppercorn Day ceremony was held at King’s Square. It is an historical event dating back to 1816. These traditions form part of the special vibe in the country.

Another nice bike ride was concluded, which took me through different parts of Bermuda with little time to absorb the scenery due to its racing character.

Fair winds…
