A gentle start.

After a good night sleep we awake to sunshine and a  forecast of sun all day and temperatures of around  20 degrees. Lyn was not sure how she would be so did not want a strenuous ride. The point will have to wait until later in the holiday. After some final adjustments to the bikes we cycled into the centre. We were surprised to find that  they are in the process if making the sea front one way. We followed the front  for a short way and the diverting to the bypass and then turning off it at Llenaire to follow the back roads to the Parc Natural de S'Albufereta  about 12 miles away. Some of the best rides are not planned and after a stop by the parcs information centre  Lyn felt strong enough to continue onto Muro , an 6 miles away from Port de Pollenca. Perhaps a coffee at one of favourite spots was a good incentive. After coffee and a pasty we followed the back roads to Sa Pobla and then returned to Port De Pollenca via the Coves de Campanet. Around trip of 43 miles. The sun shone all day and one illuminated sign showed 23 degress c. First ride of the year without the need of leg warmers.
