We don't open on Mondays

A ride from the apartment, The plan was to ride to Biniama for lunch and to see if a Bob and Agi and Agi a couple we meet two years ago were there.

A day in shorts and short sleeved top, Gilllets were taken but not unpacked, The temperature forecast was 22 degrees but the Garmin did record a high of 32,

We rode from the apartment taking the new bike path along the sea front to Llenaire. Lyn pointed out the new apartment adds 3 miles to the route from where we used to stay, it was then the back roads to the golf club and short stretch on the main road before taking minor road to Campanet, The route was a popular as ever with cyclists with several large groups racing past us, we stopped for a break at the seat before climbing the hill to Campanet. Lyn at a sensible pace whilst Robert sat on the wheel of two cyclists
We stopped for a coffee stop at a bar in Moscari we had visited on a number of ptevious occasions. The plan was go have lunch in the Bar de Mallorca in Biniamar. We need to extend the route so we arrived at a sensible time so diverted via Caimari and Mancor de la Vall. Lyn found the ascent to Mancor tiring but we were soon on the fast descent towards Biniamar and looking forward to our lunch . We arrived to find the Bar shut. Closed on Monday?

Fortunstely a bar round the corner was open and packed full of cyclists.
After lunch it was the the minor track to Inca. Getting though the city was aided by having a map displayed on the Garmin. We then took the minor road to Sa Pobla diverting into the centre to try and find a place for a cake and coffee.Several bars we open but the patisserie was shut. A diversion to Muro would have added 10 miles to the ride so we passed on having a cake.We return via the coves of Campanet and the back road from the golf club taking a small diversion to avoid the small climb. A ride of 53.8 miles with 688 metres of ascent .

After hydrating with tea a pot of tea a trip to Lidl in the van provided the ingredients for a salmon and prawn peella.
