Today’s ride is sponsored by Oak by Design
Lloret de Mar – Vilanova
Everyone was up and off early this morning, back to the usual routine after yesterday’s late start.
84 miles to cycle today, the ride went well with no one falling off, they did manage to end up in the middle of the riots in Barcelona though, joining in by shouting ‘Yorkshire’ as they went through!
The riots meant that the motorways were closed to vehicles and instead replaced with people rioting on foot.
Being in Barcelona where Paul lived during part of his uni course, they stopped for lunch at his favourite burger place, putting a smile back on Paul’s face after his little stair incident yesterday!
Turning the focus away from the cyclists, us girls actually managed to do some sightseeing for the first time today! Going to Mount Tibidabo and having a little walk around and stopping for lunch next to the Sagrat Cor Church topped by the sculpture of the sacred heart of Jesus before we drove the rest of the way to camp to set up.
Now we’re all back at tonight’s stop it has started raining! Luckily it was only lightly raining for the boys in the last hour of cycling.
Tonight we’re in the middle of nowhere so mum has cooked tonight’s tea – spag Bol, my favourite😍
7 days done, 9 days to go!
