A ride round they bay

Todays forecast was rain so we decided on a local ride. We went round the bay to Alcudia and then on the peninsula and the short climb to Ermita de la Victoria .  Good views across the bay to Port de Pollenca and Cap de Formentor from the cafe where we had the obligatory coffee stop. We made it most of the way back to Alcudia before the rain started . Lyn  remembered a good cafe in the town we had visited last year. It was soon located but this time we were disappointed . The vegetable pasty was good but the pie was lacking in taste and the staff had forgotten the smile part of "service with a smile". The sound of thunder delayed us setting of back. We sheltered in a couple of shops before the rain stopped .It was then a quick ride back round the bay. The rain held of long enough for us to research a couple of restaurants in the town . It was then time to head back before we got too wet. A round trip of 21.42 miles. The forecast for tomorrow is poor but then it is scheduled to improve.

  1. Pleased to hear you are having a relaxing time. We leave for Rome tomorrow. It's still frosty every morning with the biting N wind worse than ever today.
