Cycling from El Pangui to Yantzaza in Ecuador

During my bike tour from Alaska to Argentina, I spent nearly two months cycling in Ecuador. This blog post covers the day's ride between El Pangui to Yantzaza.

Short day's cycle to Yantzaza

Blog post written June 30th 2010

Rather than putting in a long day's cycling, I decided to do another half day and cycled to Yantzaza. There were some hills initially, but nothing compared to the hard work a few days ago, and once more the road was paved all the way.

The scenery was all green, and for a lot of the way, I cycled through a valley with a river over on my left.

Even after starting at 08.15, and stopping for breakfast in the small town of Los Encuentros, I was still done by 11.11 (There was a clock on the road just outside the hotel I booked into).

Tomorrow should be another short and easy day to Zamora, although the day after to Loja promises to be a lot harder, as I will need to cycle back up part of the Andes once more.
