Sunday 17 April 2016 - A Circuit from Puerto Pollença

After a leisurely start, Robert, Lyn and I set out in blue sky weather for a 72km circuit taking from 10.30 to 4.15pm.

We first visited Bruce at ProCycle to buy a new map, Robert's sweat having effectively destroyed the old one..

Then we enjoyed lovely views towards the mountains as we progressed towards Campanet and on to lukewarm coffee outside a café in Moscari. 

Our route then by-passed Inca to reach sa Pobla along the Ma-3422 road. The market was in full swing but we found a nice outdoor bar off the main thoroughfare for lunch, during which Robert succeeded in picking his nose with a giant bottle of Estrella!

Returning to base via the Parc Natural de s'Albufera (bird reserve), we paused on a lookout point for chocolate bars whilst a distant eagle soared high above.

Croaking frogs, stonechats, egrets, swifts and a variety of ducks entertained us as we pedalled slowly through the reserve and onto a pleasant series of quiet back roads into Puerto Pollença. 

Meanwhile, Sue had arrived courtesy of Jet2, found her Vanrell car, and driven to Alcudia for a walk before turning up in our sunny garden, demanding a pint of tea with menaces, at around 5.30pm.

As yesterday, the pictures give a flavour of the day.

Tea with menaces. The mind bogles. Don’t you worry about the UK weather we will make sure the sun is shinning for your return.
Have a great time.
