A ride to Alaro

Wednesday 8th

We had clear sky's all day with a high of around 18 degrees. We eventually found a spot to park the van in Costitx on a wide road in a very quite residential area.We took the minor track towards Sencelles but took a wrong turn and ended up on the Ma 3120. We took this roads towards Sencelles and the minor track to Santa Eugenia. It was then the gentle climb to Aloro. On reaching the square we headed for "ecosenalla" vegitarian restaurant cafe and shop we went to last year. There was no menu advertising food, we asked and they were doing a set lunch menu. We had an excellent 3 course set menu, bread and homemade hummus for nibbles, carrot soup and tofu tortilla to start followed by a homemade vegetarian patty with spicy tomato source and potatoes. We shared a desert of apple flan and had a digestive yogurt. We finished with coffee. Excellent value at 24 euro including a drink with the meal.It a real find and the mystery is why he does not try and at attack more of the cyclists who cycled past the shop when visiting the town.
After lunch we continued to Llorsta then Binissslem crossed the Ma 13 and took the Cami del Muro to Binial. This time we had not parked at the roundabout  so continued via the mountain bike track to Costitx. Around trip of 40 miles.
A good ride with views of the mountains.
We returned to Port de Pollenca via Lidl in Inca arriving back at around 18:15pm.
We eat in the apartment and had a very tasty 3 courses , deep fried mini peppers and Allioli, chicken stew and caramelised oranges.
