Longer days…longer rides

As the temperatures slowly creep up and the days become that bit longer, Ibiza begins to hum to the sound of drilling and unmistakeable smell of fresh white paint.  The 2014 season will soon be upon us.

Riding in the summer is of course fantastic but riding now, when spring is in the air and the island is waking from its winter slumber is quite fantastic and its possible to see the islands natural beauty comes alive right in front of your eyes.

VC Ibiza clients Gaby and Ben picked a great week to come over, it was a little windy to begin with but they were soon able to pick up on their training miles in preparation for the www.transcontinentalrace.comin August. Follow their adventures on their blog http://nowhereadventures.wordpress.com/

Here is a selection of photos from some big rides last week…
