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
