Trial Run

Well, we are back from our trial run for training for the Camino de Santiago.  We rode through Sierra Espuña and climbed over 1,000 metres over the Collado Bermejo into a fairly strong headwind.  It took us 3 hours 20 minutes approximately to get to the camping at El Berro.  After a shower and a beer in the bar, we went into the restaurant Espuña for menu del dia with Mick.  We had a very good meal, salad and bread, crema de verduras or chicken soup, and plata combinado.  Pork, egg, chips, black pudding and red peppers.  We then had a pudding.  Together with wine it cost 9 euros each.

Later that evening we went into Mick´s caravan to watch football!!

This morning we had a celebratory breakfast in the campsite bar.  We bought croissants and other breakfast pastries, to eat after our toast and tomato. It only took us one and a half hours to ride back the easy, more level way.

If this is a sign of things to come on the Camino, we are going to enjoy ourselves.
