Cycle Touring Spain 28th-May-2015

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in Spain on Thursday 28th-May-2015. Santiago to Vilalba. 62 miles. Another tough day with big hills and still that strong wind! I’ve even had to peddle quite a lot when going downhill!

I could hear the wind as soon as I woke up this morning, rustling the leaves in the trees!  If I hadn’t already booked my ferry for the 1st of June, I would have stayed put today. But I don’t have any spare time. It’s a bit tight as it is without stopping another day! I’m hoping tomorrow that the wind will have stopped or maybe change direction. But I’m not holding my breath. I think I might have it all the way to Santander!

The Temperature Has Dropped

It’s been a lot cooler today. Especially as the wind has been blowing from the northeast, I’ve had my jacket on all day. Passed loads of people walking the Camino de Santiago some of them could hardly walk. They were walking as bad as I do! Didn’t get as far as I wanted to today. It was gone 5 o’clock, and to do another 20 miles would have taken me at least another 3 hours. I really didn’t fancy another late night. The only trouble is the fewer miles I do each day makes it harder to get to Santander on Sunday. Ready for my ferry on Monday!

  1. Even walking up hills must be tough with that load – like pushing a motor cycle. That devil wind!
