21st February 2015
Day 1 (21st)
All went according to plan.
Hotel in Puerto Soller is nice.
Wet short ride, twice round Fornalutx.
60 very hilly ride today, sunny, windy and cold on top of the cols, brief snow flurry. Chilled at Puerto Soller, dinner 8 ish. Suffered today and really tired.
Ride to Port de Andratx via Valldemossa, warm and sunny. 93 miles for me, 102 for Phil. Last 45 was painful plus accent of Col de Soller to finish off the day. Very tough ride. 3 main courses and 2 desserts. Bum muscles ache but not saddle sore.
Very windy but dry. Phil went for a long ride, I went on a photo shoot, met Phil at Pollensa stopped for a baguette in Puerto Alcudia and rode into the headwind back to the car.
Climbing day today, up Puig Major, Sa Colabra and back over Col de Soller, very cold on top of the mountains and a strong headwind on the flat. A very tough 78 miles.
Easy ride out to Valdemosa, cafe stop there and back via the Col de Soller, added an extra loop via Fornalutx and a race back with the tram. Wet but mild day.
Phil went out for a 1 hour spin.
