I knew parts of the route from last year, only this time at 14 degrees and sun instead of 10 degrees and clouds. And what can I say, no picture can capture the rustling of the wind in the pine trees, show the salt in the air and describe a landscape that falls between lush green hills, ocher-colored, torn rock masses into a sea that could hardly shine silver and gold , Too much pathos? Then I don't describe it as kitschy enough. This day and this tour had everything, rapid descents, steep climbs and bends en massive on asphalt. And I had already thought of demolition in heavy traffic and with almost stormy headwinds to Valdemossa. All the racing cyclists I had seen so far came towards me - well with the wind. Good thing that I held out, an impressively beautiful exit remains in my memory and the desire to return soon.

Once is not once and since the Tramuntana Mountains (the Tramuntana?) Sank into low clouds, we went back to Randa. The straight-ahead approach between s'Aranjassa and Llucmajor should be avoided. The stair-shaped ascent is irregular, the road has deep ditches on the left and right, and there is also a lot of heavy traffic going to a building yard near Llucmajor. The arrival from day one was much better. This time it went up to the Puig de Randa through Randa itself. I find this driveway nicer than the sometimes very steep climb (even if Komoot says something else here it sometimes had> 15%) over a narrow, relatively bad side street from yesterday. Rhythmically it went up the main climb and then downhill again.

5 kg additional December weight, St. Nicholas cold and pure Zwift exercises, I was excited to see how the first few kilometers would feel. And what can I say, it rolled 😉. At the Randa I noticed that the Christmas goose is traveling. First round anyway ... Check. Hopefully more will come out.

Gray, gray, black, many more colors could not be seen today ... oh, but a lot of like-minded people were on the way. Because of family commitments it was only a short round. Really fast, but it was not, my knee scolded because of the cool and somehow the cloud cover was also on the legs ... But I was outside and that was just good.

I don't ride bike to win races nor do I ride to get places. I ride to escape this World. I ride to find peace with myself and I ride to feel STRONG
