Cycle Touring Spain 15th-May-2015

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in Spain on Friday, 15th-May-2015. Alcaudete to Granada. 44 miles. Had a puncture to fix before I left the hotel this morning which really wasn’t a surprise to me! On the climb up to Alcaudete yesterday afternoon, a lorry went past me with a burst tyre there were bits of shrapnel flying off everywhere. it’s not so much the rubber that’s the problem it’s the tiny shards of wire that give the punctures. I did my best to avoid them but a lot of time you can’t see most of them!

I fixed the puncture and was on my way by 9 o’clock, so not too bad. I wasn’t that worried as I knew I didn’t have far to go today as I was only going as far as Granada. I knew there were campsites there. I’ve got a wedding to pay for now! Also, with the way the heat has been these past couple of days. I really didn’t fancy cycling too far! As it turns out, it’s not felt as hot today. the breeze has been nice and cool, and I’ve even seen snow on the upper mountains of the Sierra Nevada! (Zoom in on the picture)

Camping Again

Hoping that I can start camping again now not just because of the cost but I can get up early and get a good few miles in before it gets too hot! I might even reach the coast tomorrow you never know!
