    good Day 3 Vitoria to Pamplona 82 mi 06:40 12.3mph pace

    Another hot day forecast. I decided to crack on at my own pace to get in before the main heat of the day. I now had no back up and thirst in these temperatures was becoming a problem. Even the s... read more

    good Day 2 Guernica to Vitoria 70 mi 05:41 12.3mph pace

    We set off earlyish but the pace isn't all that quick. Not that it should be in the horrendous block headwind. The group just splintered into fragments. Horny broke another bike that had be... read more

      @Hazel - I had a lump of bread pudding if that is allowed to be called cake, The retracing was a result of M's desire to pick bike up but not climb up and over. Sometimes the "rules" must be adapted!

      Not sure where I stand on the cake/bread pudding issue -
