14th April. Another Ride from Ruberts

14 th April

Decided to do another ride from Ruberts. This time we took the track in the direction of Pina. Then onto Montuiri and another coffee in the bar.Being the weekend there were lots more cyclists.We admired the view and logged onto the villages free WIFI. Porreres was the planned stop for lunch. The bar we had found previously was not doing the menu of the day. Instead we purchased 2 excellent pieces of cake from fund raising stall.We then yook a minor track in the direction of Campos. The track was marked as a green route on our map. The tarmac road soon became an unmade road then after about 5 miles the track was blocked with a gate and the sign said the Spanish "Private no Entry". A German lady cyclist was looking lost by the sign. We followed the road back and took the first turning off and eventually ended up on the road we had taken earlier in the holiday when we went to Felantix.After a quick ride and the town we we headed back on minor paths and roads via Vilfrance de Bonany, Sant Joan and Lloret de Vistalegre. We parked in town to drop the bikes off at Pro Cycle Hire Mallorca. The shop was very busy with cyclists picking up their bikes for the week. If you want to hire a good quality bike in Mallorca we can highly recommend them. An excellent choice of bikes with a friendly efficient service. Whilst we we waiting R checked the cycling map the shop sell. It would be worth getting on our next visit as it included lots of roads and tracks not marked on our 1:130 000 map of the Island. As they were really busy in the shop R borrowed the tools to remove our peddles to speed up the process.The end of an excellent 10 days of cycling. Over 420 miles completed with just one puncture.We look forward to be reunited with our bikes again next year.
