We awoke early and were on the road by 730A.M. It was difficult to breath riding through Cairo. The pollution was thick and visible within 50 yards. With plenty of honking my horn I safely escaped the city. It was exciting having a bike lane on the Ain Sokhna highway. We got our first glimpse of large expanses of undeveloped desert transitioning into mountains in the distance. When we made it to Sokhna we passed large steel industrial plants and found lodging at the portrait hotel which had a great view of the Red Sea and the freight ships offshore. Today was the longest day we’ve traveled so far at 86 miles.
