We were in Spain and have just returned home.
It was a fun week-long bicycling trip in the Pyrenees and the coastal section of northeastern Spain. We went with Backroads and had some incredible trip leaders and met some extremely interesting families.
Also, the locals were very friendly and the scenery was breathtaking. There’s nothing like cycling 40 to 50 miles each day and having some amazing local food and wine for dinner.
Some of the rides up into the Pyrenees were very challenging. I wasn’t a very fast rider, but I every day opted for the longest route and finished. It was very fulfilling. I also enjoyed learning a little Spanish and Catalan.
I’m pretty tired right now from the long flight. I will blog more about the trip in the coming days, but I will leave you with the pictures below.
