White Knuckle Ride to The Old Peoples Home!

Post by XTreme » Sun Jun 07, 2020 3:52 pm

Going up in altitude on variable road surfaces, adverse cambers, sheer drops, strong crosswinds, and at the summit it was cold enough to give me white fingers! 

You Casuals couldn't handle this hardcore shit.......except for @JRH of course!

Then on the way back I stopped to check out the Old Peoples Home (cos at 66 you never know)......and they put the barricade across the road!

One thing you can't beat the Spanish is their asphalt.
Even secondary roads are so smooth that you forget you're riding.
Completely opposite to UK roads, when you drive here feels like you have Parkinson's....
All my food only eat vegetables. So, I'm an indirect vegetarian :cool:

All problems have a solution.
You just need to figure it out :)
