Back on the black jack…

So after 13 Days off due to a lower back injury…It was good to get back on the bike this morning. When I say good, I mean in terms of my back not hurting and the fact I’m riding again. That was about as good as it got before I started to realize that spending all that time with my old friend San Miguel while convalescing was probably not the best idea!  Hey ho the sun was still shining and many thanks to Sian Randall from Massage Me Ibiza and Vicente at http://www.fisioeivissa.com who sorted me out and got me back in the saddle!

 

VC Ibiza and Steyning AC

It only takes so long before an athlete on holiday starts to get itchy feet and is looking to do some training. Rob from Steyning AC in West Sussex was one such athlete so setting of on a beautiful morning, we went on ramble of the east coast of the island from his holiday base in Es Canar.

Heading north on todays southern loop towards Cala Llonga

Riding out of Es Canar towards Sant Carles we the rode in the campo and headed towards San Llorenc before turning south back towards Santa Eularia.
We then embarked on a small southern loop heading towards south toward Eivissa before switching back and taking on the PM 810-1. To Cala Llonga and back towards our start point. Where would would continue on the lovely PM810-1 coastal road to Cala Sant Vincent before turning round to head home.

Fireworks…


The fireworks in Ibiza Town last night temporarily took the pain away from the idiotic running injury sustained in the afternoon!
