We headed from Lorca to Velez Blanco today. We knew we were in for a few category hills ending with a stiff one over the final 10 K rising to over 1000 metres, but we were not ready for the horrid blustery headwinds that made bike control difficult. We made it, but not without some trauma.
A pleasure en route however was meeting Kevin, a true cycle-traveller. Kevin is from Ireland and was making his way to the coast to get away from the cold and snows of the hills – he camps each night.
We were reminded that we play at this cycle touring thing while some others have it as a life style. All the best to Kevin and his tribe.
