Day 3: Antequera to Ronda

•April 25, 2016 • 2 Comments

67 miles & 6745 ft. The road leaving Antequera makes for some truly fantastic cycling, and lots of climbing. 

 

The morning started with some fog

 

 

And the drivers actually follow this law

 

In the complex, cramped hilltop villages, the GPS sometimes thinks these are rideable 

 

More great roads…

Touring Andalucia Day 1: Córdoba to Zuheros

•April 22, 2016 • Leave a Comment

58 miles, 4505′.    Most of the climbing was at the end. The final ¼ mile up to the village of Zuheros on the cobble road hit 17%.  A killer with a loaded touring bike!

 

In the courtyard of the apartment we rented

This stage is mostly riding through farmland. A typical farmhouse in the back. 

Zuheros…the quintessential white village. 

Zuheros could NOT be any more picture perfect.

Probably the best Flamenco show we’ve ever seen.

I’m doing these two solo, self-supported loops: 7 days cycling in Andalusia and 8 days cycling in Sardinia. Total of 783 miles and just under 70,000′ of climbing.  Spring Training!

Kyoto…and then, Tokyo

Shots from inside a small temple garden in Kyoto…

And the widest bed we’ve ever slept in…6″ wider than a US king, and 22″ wider than our queen.  An aircraft carrier.

 In Tokyo, seeing the unusual becomes the norm

The contrast of the park setting and the enormous buildings was quite something.

And another very public wedding

The shot above was taken on the main Ginza shopping street.  There were thousands of people, but being Japan, amazingly quiet. Tokyo, a city 1.5 times the size of NYC with mostly hybrid cars humming about and shutting off at the red lights, zero beeping horns, no street music, no buskers… You would be hard pressed to realize you’re in a city with almost 14M people.  Almost silent.
