Promises of cheap and good food, smooth roads and hot winter temperatures and not too great distances and I was immediately sold. It was quite a shock to be so suddenly thrown from a wintery Italian bike ride wrapped up with scarves, gloves and hat, to a sweltering anarchic traffic mess. With all the tiredness from the travel and after assembling the bike under the staring eyes of the Airport security, I proudly set out from Bandaranaike International airport, heading north and desperately trying to get to the coast.
