The Pirinees

The climb to the Pyrenees was quite fast, although hard. In any case less than what we expected. Definitelly not going across the highest point of course did help, but it was much a stronger motivation to see the “grandpas” come in road bike, ride side by side, surpass us and climb the ports as nothing. In…

Es molt mes bonica L’emporda

Summarizing a bit last days have been two legs of  60 and 59km respectively. Before nightfall we find one of the best places to sleep and rest. Wow! We enjoy a beautiful landscape, we cross several rivers … we are like children. Pure JOY. We went through a town along the way -Verges-, and several more….

Leg Breaker

Just 35km Few km today. What a road! We loved it every second. Hard steep roads, closed turns, nice weather and our first swim! Tyring day. Good day 🙂 Sorry for the sound and rotating camera, but it is hard to drive and film at the same time!! 35km. pocos km, mucha montaña y mucha…

Leaving Barcelona

Barcelona – Badalona – Masnou – Mataro – Calella – Malgrat de Mar – Blanes 82 km We departure from Barcelona, ​​on flat trail by the seaside and the wind in our backs. I think it’s the first time since Valencia. It can’t get any better: km fly by! We spent the days in Barcelona,…

Rainy

Hoy ya por la mañana, no para de llover, asi que nos quedamos a descansar en la tienda, hasta mas o menos ahora (las 12.00), que parece que finalmente para. Así que vamos a ver si nos ponemos a recoger, se seca un poco la tienda y podemos seguir. What a wonderful day…even the rain…

Flying!

Sant Jordi – ulldecona – amposta – l’aldea. 50 Km, less than 4 h. Last night it ended raining again, and we woke up with the same wet weather. It stopped after a while though, and we were able to continue without further problems. Chilly morning until the first village. Road has been very smooth, apart…

El riu verd – The green river

Torreblanca – Calig – Sant Jordi 58 km. We are improving. Definitely getting better on sitting on top of the bike for ours. The afternoon went again rainy and cold. We were shivering, so while crossing a bridge with the train rails running to infinity we fantasised on covering about 10 or 15 km by…

Spring got missing

Today is a day that recalls me of some spanish rock song to the rhythm of violins, guitars and verses of Chinato Manolillo. Wind, rain. A picture of winter. After only 42 km we call a day. Hmm not such a great leg today. Already soaked and after many doubts, we decided to stop, pitch…

A 1000 km jorney starts with a first pedal stroke

valencia – castellon 72km Nice sunny day, nice weather and a nice road. No better way to start! We find it easy and with every step many meters go by. We get to the old Roman city of Sagunto following some bicycle routes, and from there dirt paths and secondary roads up to Catellon. Easy…

Last night at home. Last night in Valencia

It is the last night before we start the trip!I am sitting in front of the computer screen and I just want to kill my time…Everything is almost ready (oh! two words in a sentence that I don’t like, and coming around together!). I have also been watching the weather forecast! From Thursday it will rain non-stop!…
