Riding from Santander to Alcobendas was a race home for dinner really. I took the most direct route and was very focused with stops for petrol, food and drink. No extras. I was slowed down by roadworks but really it all went fine.
Spain is a beautiful country to travel in, even the major roads are scenic. Up north everything was in shades of green, gradually the colour sceme changed to brown and later to yellow. The temperature was 27C getting of the boat, but the closer I got to Madrid the warmer it got, in the end the difference was 10 degrees.
Now my bike is parked and other activities awaits me. August isn’t bikerseason in Madrid anyway, to hot to be good. So I’m going to rest and digest my impressions of the journey. Then I be back with my reflections.
