Riding the Devil’s Triangle


This was a great ride (approx 6miles) from Hotnitsa to the T junction at Resen, turn right, ride up 3 hills – the second one is the worst – long and high. Straight onto the next T junction just before the village of Samavodene. Take a right, there’s a short pull uphill then it’s downhill all the way back to Hotnitsa. The triangle is a right angled one with the 3 hills forming a sort of wavy hypotenuse.

As we rode the sun turned into a giant, red ball and bobbed about on the horizon for a while before disappearing.  I would have taken a photo if only I’d remembered the camera! However flushed with success we did the same ride again the next night and in the absence of a wonderful sunset I took a photo of Bertha standing next to the sign for the village.

Image Allan gave me the award above. I’m one of only 3 women/girls (you know who you are) to have completed the Devil’s Triangle ride  this summer.
