What a gorgeous day and how I enjoy cycling in the warm sun 🙂 I didn’t even mind the close on a thousand feet climb that starts the minute you hop on the bike! My climb time was 38:30 whereas the KOM is nearly 25 mins faster but then I guess he isn’t lugging the kitchen sink up with him and I would guess considerably younger 🙂 Great fun though
Then a short descent into the very upmarket Sant Joan town and the lovely Giri Cafe selling its ‘volcanic purity’ water whatever that means – volcanoes to me mean sulphurous smells 🙁
At the top you get the pleasure of the 5 mile descent into Cala Sant Vincent with its huge hotel as a backdrop to the beach 🙁 I didn’t stop but continued along to the Cala Boix hostal where I’m staying for some reason the beach has been left largely untouched apart from a cafe. So I may go for a swim later.
My Strava says a whopping 16.5 miles covered and 2,057 feet of ascent 🙂 but still an excellent ride,
All my lovely pics are here on Dropbox
My thoughts however reach out to poor Aleks Kashefi yomping his way through Scandinavia to try and reach the sun in Spain 🙂
and here’s my heart rate stuff:
