I have a week off work, it is called sports holiday, an opportunity to do wintersports. I don’t really like skiing so I was looking forward to do some riding, head south and spend a couple of days riding. Unfortunately the wheather on the whole Iberian Peninsula is rather cold and rainy now.
Fortunately, I managed to get out a couple of hours on Saturday riding up to El Escorial to get some nice photos. I’m ridiculously fond of photos of my own bike and something scenic, you might have got that by now.
Riding up to El Escorial I passed the lake/water reservoir on road 505, a very pretty spot, even on a cloudy day. The weather was a bit chilly I thought. Even when wearing thermal underwear, fleece top and using heated grips. This is possibly the coldest winter since I moved to Spain so it was nice to stop often and move around a bit.
Almost back home, Puerta de Alcalá. I have been wanting to snap a photo here for a long time, finally got around to doing it…
