Thursday’s Shop Ride in the Spanish heat!

It was a sunny morning in Girona and as soon as the doors of Bike Breaks were open it started to get very crowded!

Our Club Ciclista Bike Breaks members were very excited to see Pau and Sergi back in our Shop Ride after not being able to join us for months due to work so it was a very special ride this morning. However, the majority of the peloton were from abroad (as usual).

We did our regular loop, slowly leaving Girona’s Old Town as a compact peloton but as soon as we approached the hills pro rider Tom Baylis started to set up a high pace and the peloton was reduced as just a handful of riders could follow him.

We regrouped at the coffee stop; the lovely staff was waiting for us and was ready to take our orders. Café con leche, coca cola… even a couple of Spanish bocadillos to keep us going. It’s always nice to have time off the bike to chat with all the other riders!

As we were getting ready to get back on our bikes Dave explained the 3 different route options we had today, though everyone opted to do the “medium” 65km ride as it was too hot to go for a longer ride today.

We continued our ride through the beautiful Catalan roads and made our way back to town.

Once again a successful ride, can’t wait for next Thursday!
