Another day another Euro…😁
After getting out of town we head south towards Seville – for another planned 105 mile day.
The weather was a little cooler this morning which made for a pleasant paced ride out of town…..that was until:
4 miles out, one of the team pulled up and was shall we a little sick (must have been the fast pace after breakfast)…😁,
Then the chain broke on one of the other bikes which finished off their ride for about half the distance….
We climbed passed a stunning castle on a hill top.
We passed a backwards runner on one long climb, slightly disconcerting!
Do you know,it shows the camaraderie of the people that ride in this group…no-one gets left behind…1 stayed which allowed the remainder of the group to ride on…one other returned with the van, pick up and then play chase to catch-up the group some 12 miles down the road….
Our experiences in France and Spain for bike repairs have been tremendous…drop in and pretty much same day repair – in the UK it’s more like manyana…or…. tomorrow.. superb service received all round…
Today has also been a day of pain in the form of blisters…in places where no blister should ever be found – buts that’s a story for another day…
The wind today has been challenging to say the least. The team worked tirelessly to keep a steady progress. The reward a chicken in a ……….. pot!
Tomorrow we leave Seville for our last big riding day – I think it will be emotional…😁
