1st Bike Ride ~ 1st Fall

Lovely day for a bike ride, after all that’s what we bought the bikes for. I can remember being in Swansea the day we purchased them and envisaging (if that’s a word) cycling in Spain. Got on mine this morning, thought I’d just make sure I was ok before going out on road (cos I’m…

Alhambra

Today was the day we had got tickets for the Alhambra, but it was raining, and raining real hard. In fact I can’t tell you how close we came to giving up before we started, however, we are so glad we persevered and waited in the teaming rain to catch the bus into Granada from…

A Very Special Birthday

It is a very special day today as it’s my 65th birthday.. how did I get here? I have no idea where the years have gone. In my heart and head I feel about 40 but it is obviously fibbing to me. After leaving Cordoba we made our way through mountainous scenery to the Sierra…

Gotta find the sun….

Where’s the sun? We’ve come to Spain and it’s flipping cold and wet. What’s going On? Our friends have gone on holiday to Yorkshire and they are posting better photographs with blue skies and sunshine, all we seem to be finding is snow and grey skies and it’s freezing… We’ll head south, there’s got to…

I’m Seeing Elephant’s

Our overnight stop for the first night was a place called Elephant Park, now I imagined this is like someone saying you’re staying at ‘Sea View’ when you’re in the middle of Birmingham for instance. We sort of got a wee bit lost on the way, but no matter it was only a few km’s…

All Aboard….

Well we finally made it on board after 5 hrs delay. We are on the Cap Finestra (Brittany Ferries). We had arrived at the ferry port early and there were probably about 4 vehicles in front of us so pretty much at the front of the queue. We settled down and made a cup of…

We’re on our way…

As you may be aware we purchased a new moho in February. After lots of delays and aggravation we finally collected Vera II in September. She is a Chausson Welcome 630. To say we are delighted with her is an understatement. ¬†After a few modifications and once the snagging list has been dealt with she…

Chilling in the heat

We’ve managed to get away for our couple of days in Vera, back to our bolt hole of Pandy near Abergavenny. The long hot summer continues and we are gradually flagging with the heat, trying to maintain standards on site at St David’s (which is constantly full lately and rightly so, after all if we’re…

These are for the knees and joints….

Yippee, we’ve just bought some new E-bikes. We’ve been looking at them for a couple of years and more so since getting Big Bertha last year, she was a starting point but after she developed a fault it became arduous to ride her. She is so heavy, probably best part of 40kilos. Because we aren’t…
