Arrived back in England tonight to cold and wet weather after my little break in Spain.
The weather during my week away could have been better, we did have some cooler days, and a bit of rain, but it was better than the weather in England, where there’s been fierce winds, and heavy rain, with some flooding.
I was staying with my sister in the south of Spain and the mountain-biking was spectacular! There were long winding climbs, short gnarly climbs and long sweeping descents. There were plenty of technical challenges including rocky sections, and loose shale that tested my leg-stamina, lung capacity, and bottle!
Also did some road cycling. Loads of hill climbing, and almost no cars around. Perfect.
I was well looked after by my sister Hilda, and her husband Chris (a very good cook) – lots of food, lots of wine and lots of cycling. Great.
