I decided to fit in one last ride this afternoon before moving on to new location tomorrow.  It was an abbreviation of the mountain ride I did on Wednesday,  this time no mountain.  It was also one of the first rides I did here last year.  The temperature was in the mid 20’s C, very pleasant for cycling.

Its a really pleasant ride for most of the way.  The outward run along the C51 main road is fast through some of the coastal towns.  Light traffic and generous cycle lane along the road.

I turned off at Cubelles and headed into the country then the best bit starts, an undulating quiet road, great surfaces and fine  scenery up.  I stopped to take these photos at Castellet, almost at the top of the triangle the route forms.

A bit more cross country riding to L’Arboc,

Then there is a bit more main road work with a few trucks on it down to Bellvei where I switched to a quieter road but still a generous cycle lane on both the roads.

Wherever there is no cycle lane or path there is generally a few of these dotted about.. a useful addition that would be welcome on some of our roads I think .

It was mostly a downward gradient all the way from Bellvei back to Calafell and ‘home’ for a bit of a relax and dinner before starting to do some of the packing ready for the morning departure up to our next stay for a week or so.  Oh and finding time to write this post too !!
