Mallorca Day 11- A ride to Biniamar

The forecast was a fine morning with temperature of around 18 degrees but with the possibility of showers in the afternoon.  The ride started from the appartment and Martin and Sue decided to join us. This was Sue's first ride on the island.  The anticlockwise loop took on the back roads from Puerto Pollenca to Campanet.  We stopped at seat by the chapel and decided to climb the hill to Campanet and get a coffee from the small supermarket on the corner.  Unfortunately it was closed for refurbishment so we continued towards Caimari and diveted off our route up the hill to Moscari.  The bar by the church was closed so we had a pleasant coffee in the bar in the main square. Our route then took us on the minor roads  to Binibona a Caimari where instead of climbing up to Lluc we continued round the valley to Mancor de La Vall. After a quick descent towards Inca we turned of towards Biniamar.  We were pleased to find Bar de Mayorga was open. We sat outside in the shade and enjoyed an excellent mixed pa amb oli each. The sky's darkened as we set off towards Llosetta and took the minor track to Inca. The Garmin directed us on the back roads thought Inca to the cycle path to Sa Pobla. We stopped in the main square at cafe Placa Vuit for a cake and a drink.  Lyn and I shared as slice of Almond cake. It was freshly baked and very good. On our next visit we will try the chocolate cake Martin had as it was also very good. Our route back was though the Parc Natural de S'Albufera.  Sue spotted a Bee Orchid which we stopped to photograph before we took the back roads to Port Pollenca.  An excellent ride and a round trip of 53 miles. Althoght the dark  clouds threatened rain it stayed away all day. After beer o'clock sitting outside on the patio a vegetable curry was prepared and eatern.
