Day 56 I left Kemijärvi at 8:20 under a cloudy sky and with a fresh wind from NNE at 12°. After a while the sun came out and as I arrived in Rovaniemi, temperature had raised to 20°. It has been another easy ride with moderate slopes. But the drawback of the raising temperature is that horse and dear flies made their apparition and began to chase me. If you ever have been chased by a swarm of dear flies, you know what I mean and that the only chance you have to avoid getting bitten, is to escape as fast as possible. For my lunch stop, I wanted to avoid the unfriendly insects and found a picnic place on a well-kept lawn in the middle of a village.
