Interestingly, the last proper grocery shop was in Pusula. Next one along my route would be near Lahti, three days and nights later. I am somewhat surprised or better say amused by this fact. Also for reasons of cycling more on asphalt and not on gravel, I changed direction and went via Renko. In the end no worries with grocery shopping.
Lunch places typically offer a salad table from where one can pick basic veggies and sometimes fruits. That is typically refreshing and the price is ok.
Since my gadgets let me down when it comes to tracking I will make a trip summary later. These 3 legs together were about 197km (51+72+74) and 1450m ascenting.
