Road Cycling, multi stages, in the valleys, from Brussels to Budapest, July 2021

Budapest - Debrecen

After an obligatory stop of 3 days to enjoy the pleasures that Budapest offers, I leave early in the morning taking the N31 and I cross the suburbs to the east of the city. I drive to Jasbereny and then stop at a shop to find something to eat. I buy a roadside watermelon shortly after at one of the many small ephemeral sales counters installed at this place during the harvest of this fruit abundantly grown in this region. After a hearty meal, I borrow smaller village roads but this time a strong wind of plain and a weather that darkens will take place in front of me in this desert region where we can discover isolated farms exerting cattle breeding or geese. I cross a lakes area and more or less 30 km from Debrecen I arrive in the Hortobagyi Nature Park. I stop to refresh myself to the sanitary facilities at the disposal of the tourists who come to discover the natural park. It is a region of steppe where there are animals such as horses, sheep, ... of different breed from our country and which are characterized by their nomadism. I arrive late afternoon in Debrecen after +/- 250 km of road.
