I’m just in the door after a 3 day excursion to striking Catalonia. What was meant to be an escape from irish weather was only a change of scenery with nearly the same conditions. We basically brought the weather with us.

Overall it was not too bad and we got a solid amount of miles in. Cycling around our base between El Perelló and L’Ametlla de Mar was brilliant. The roads are quite and in great condition. Used to irish roads it felt so easy and smooth.

Nearly nobody seems to be driving or cycling in that area so it was even more enjoyable to go out and enjoy the scenic climbs. All the little towns with their typical cafes and bars made the rides even more enjoyable. Probably the first training where I come back heavier as I went.
