A Bit Cooler On The Costa Blanca

Another early one was planned for today to avoid the heat of the day, as it turned out, at 07:30 this morning, it was a bit overcast with a slight breeze making for great biking conditions.

Getting up early is a bit of a chore on a Sunday especially if you do the same during the week for work but it is well worth it at this time of year.  We met at the coach garage near Murla, as we have for the last few outings but headed towards Parcent this time before going up and over Coll de Rates.  This stretch of road is a great mix of tight hairpins and short straights with great views along the way down into the Jalon valley below.

Sunday 12th July 2015 was set to be another hot one.  Great for the throngs of holiday makers on the Costa Blanca's beaches, not so good for all the bikers itching to get out and enjoy the roads.  The only plan that works on days like these is a ride into the mountains and hope for a bit of a breeze to soften the harshness of the sun and an early start of course.

As with many hobbies biking has over the years turned into a bit of a fashion show, with people not wanting to wear this or that because it is last years colour.  For me this has never been a problem as I buy my gear based on it's level of protection and usefulness rather than its brand or colour.

Having said that after a biking history that goes back over thirty years I do have a fair collection of clothing, some of which is still in fashion, or possibly in fashion again.

After a short detour to the garage, for petrol, and then a return trip home for my forgotten documents, off I went to Alcalali to meet up with three Bikers España members for a shortish and cold ride through the local mountains.

Sunday Afternoon Meander

What better way to spend a slightly overcast Sunday afternoon than meandering around the roads and trails of the Jalon Valley.  Sometimes just going for a short ride is all it takes to get my biking fix and blow the cobwebs away.
