Jaro and his bike are now in Spain (mid March/2017).....

 
Discovered recently that the seat on my Cervelo was set a few millimeters too low.  Boy, what a difference a slight adjustment makes!   About half of it was due to the seat getting a bit old and worn (Fizik Wingflex), the rest was probably due to not being used to riding much at all on hills around Montreal.  Here it is nothing but hills, so the difference is noticeable....


In early March, it was hot here - switched from doing afternoon bike rides to morning rides - 32°C afternoon, low 20's in the morning, but after a week, finally back to normal - nice cool evenings and low 20's max temps.

Photos from my daily training ride route, east and north of Playa Santiago.  Normally I do not take the camera with me, but I figured this one time would take care of the souvenir photos.

The tunnel at lower right connects the Tecina valley with Playa Santiago on the other (west) side of the mountain - just a short tunnel, with the exit visible from the entrance so just enough light to see the road when inside.


Pastrana is a small mountain village at the very end of route CV-20......
 


End of the road in Pastrana - hikers park their cars here and continue north on foot.
