Ice Fishing

Often thinking about this tour. When visiting Riga, I decided to explore the way to the seaside by bike. Since the bike rentals were closed in February I went to the russian flea market and asked for advice. Since I did not intend to establish a new record, I was comfortable with an old street bike. In order to work on my orientation skills I did not use a map as always. At KM 12 I took the wrong route and had to turn around. Then I found a track leading me along the delta of the Daugova. AtI Vakarbuļļi at the end of Daugavgrīvas island I stopped and had a chat with an sculpturer, who told me about his projects.. From there I continued my journey walking to Jurmala, a wonderful seabath with many russian inhabitants.On may way back I was impressed by the many ice fishers at the river of Lielupe. A very old tradition of the country.
