Day 16 - Tucepi to Trogir (90km)

I woke up early and began riding before the sun rose. I was motivated to take advantage of my new liberty, to escape the heat, and to beat the onslaught of cars that I knew would inevitably flood the road. I was also motivated by some exciting news. Having recently accepted a job offer, Pierre decided, on very short notice, to jump on a plane and meet me in Split.

His flight was scheduled to land at 9am, 90km from where I slept last night. The sun rose just before 5am. I took that as a challenge to make it to the airport in time for Pierre's arrival. I suffered three flats during the first 20km, but that didn't hold me back; I arrived by the time that Pierre had his bicycle together.

We rode into a little town called Trogir together, found a quiet place to stay and were pleased to discover that there was a unesco site just a short walk away.

I don't know how long Pierre can (or will want to) stay; I realize from my ride with Carrie that even two people who care for each other and are motivated to ride together can struggle. Whatever the case, I will enjoy it for as long as it lasts. It's really cool to see him!
