Today weather started with rain in the morning eventually clearing and some sunny spells in the afternoon. We split into 4 groups in the end, a long 45 mile ride, a short 25 mile ride, a short short ride of 10 miles and a walking group.
I decided to take it easy with my back problem and joined Alan and Liz on the short short ride. We rode down the narrow road to Lanjaron with a descent of 600ft down the cliff. We joined the walking group, Mike, Jim, Eileen and Elizabeth for coffee and waited out some heavy rain.
We then rode on a little way and stopped for a picnic lunch and then down to some giant windturbines. Then back up the hill and some relaxing by the pool.
The short riders were Avryl, Richard, Ernie and Nicola who went down to Pinos Valle and then a loop round the lake of Embase de Beznar and then climbed back up to Lanjaron and then up the hill back to base.
Phil Mary Gill and Ann did the long ride. From Pinos de Valle they did a long backroad downhill to the south and then up and along the valley on the far side from Lanjaron and on to Orgiva and a long climb from there back up to Lanjaron.
Phil and Ernie impressed onlookers with short swims in the very cold pool.
We rounded off the day with another splendid meal prepared by our host Ann including Roast Pork and vegetables
