I didn’t have time to write about leaving DaLat. DaLat was built by the French so they could get away from the summer heat.
I instantly fell in love with the city. It has a backpacker vibe and an incredibly old world charm.
We left and got to see the original French steam train.
After that we had a nice chaotic ride through the city followed by an exciting 5 km descent. Sadly,two members in the group crashed. They are OK, but it wasn’t fun to see.
We followed this with an incredible…. Amazing… I am not sure I have the words…. 30 km descent. No pedalling was required, but a good grip on the back brakes and a keen eye for potholes definitely was. Here are some of the photos.
