Leg No. 11:  Quy Nhơn-Tuy Hòa (95 km)

By this time, you should be used to spending many hours on the roads of Vietnam.  Having completed so many 100 plus kilometer days, anything less is probably considered a short biking day.  Don’t be fool with this thought.  This leg, Quy Nhơn - Tuy Hòa, although less than a 100 km, will put your biking muscles to the test.  You start off the day by biking along the coast of Ghềnh Ráng, a beautiful stretch of coast overlooking the blue ocean.  This road (Highway 1D), however, is an uphill climb, which eventually leads you back to Highway 1A.  The road on Highway 1A to Tuy Hòa is arid, filled with isolated stretches of sand.  The climate here is also hotter than previous rides.  Before getting into Tuy Hòa, undulating hills, some quite high, will have to be crossed.  Prepare your legs for climbing these hills.  Once you enter the town of Tuy Hòa, you will be rewarded for the day’s hard ride.  Tuy Hòa is a small town that is well known for the many small horses and oxens.  Here, you will see people still employ these animals as a mode of transportation and for carting materials from one place to another.  There is a rustic, western like feel to Tuy Hòa that is not observed else where in Vietnam.
