On Boxing Day we got up early to start our journey to the next destination, Mui Ne beach on the southwest coast. After driving out of town for an hour or so, we got on our mountain bikes and warmed up with a 4km uphill ride with 10% incline. And we thought we had signed up for a DOWNhill ride to the beach! The rest of the 80km ride was mostly downhill, with amazing views over coffee plantations, mountain villages and some steep, fast curvy downhill roads. It took us less than 2 hours to cover the first 50km and that included some uphill and stops, so when it was downhill we were really flying (even motorbikes couldn't keep up with us!).
 
Mui Ne is a nice beach town and we spent our days relaxing (and giving our bottoms time to recover) and enjoying the sunshine.

Toisena joulupaivana jatkoimme matkaa Mui Ne-nimiseen rantakaupunkiin, ensin pakettiautolla ja seuraavat 80 km maastopyorilla. Olimme luulleet etta koko matka olisi alamakea, joten kun oppaamme tokaisi etta lammittelyksi polkisimme 4km ylos tosi jyrkkaa ylamakea, luulimme ensin etta han vain vitsaili. Onneksi taman jalkeen maasto muuttui suotuisammaksi ja paasimme hurjastelemaan monen kilometrin pituisia alamakia pitkin. Valilla vauhtia oli sen verran etta ohitimme jopa paikallisia mopokuskeja. Maisemat oli tosi upeita, ja reitti kulki useiden pikku kylien lapi jossa paikalliset lapsista aikuisiin tulivat tienvarteen meita tervehtimaan.
 
Saavuimme iltapaivalla vasyneina Mui Neen ja seuraavat pari paivaa kuluivat rennosti auringosta nauttien.
