Los Tres Amigos

2 of VC Ibiza’s oldest and dearest club members visited the White Isle last week for some training in the spring sunshine and a fair amount of fun. Simon is currently starting his training for his upcoming UK triathlon.

There is a a fair amount of flat riding in the event so we did a few laps of  the road between the salt plains of Salinas to get his body used to doing concentrated efforts on long flat roads. It’s a great road for this as the roundabout at San Jordi acts as one marker while the roundabout at the entrance to Salinas beach acts as the other and between them you try and go as hard and as fast as you can ! Simple.

The next morning we were joined by Richard as we headed out on a leg stretch toward the west coast, it was a slow one as there were many things to catch up on over a few too many Vinos the night previous.

After the riding was done we were able to sample at length the après ride delights Ibiza has to offer, unfortunately no photos beyond the point we dismounted the bikes were deemed usable for the blog!
