3rd June 2013

Well the road biking is working well. 82km in just over 4 hours cycling time (longer if you allow for lunch, photo stops and sleeping in an olive orchard). At this rate I should be in the Pyrenees by early next week. Also beat my land-speed record by 0.1kph – now standing at 58.3kph. But I had another puncture. On the old tires I rode hundreds of miles off road with no punctures. On these I have had 2 punctures in 3 days on tarmac. Oh how I wish I had a big pair of nubblies under me.

Sorry no photos today – I rode through orchards for the WHOLE distance, yes really. I summoned up the enthusiasm to feature some olive trees in the video blog, but they didn’t say much. See the video on Youtube

This is my blog of my trip around Spain, off road, on my mountain bike. The story is told in full in my book "Three Wheels on my Bicycle", available on Amazon in Kindle or hardback.
