La Palma 2014 (7)

Tilos Bridge over the Barranco del Aqua near Los Sauces, La Palma, Spain

After my second weekend bike tour on La Palma (described in La Palma (6)) on Saturday, I was already back on my bike on Sunday. I had sent the bike from Germany to La Palma and had to do without it for 3 weeks, apparently I then tried to make up for the bike withdrawal. In any case, I was much fitter than now that I’m writing about it, I can’t imagine so many meters of altitude on two days in a row at the moment. After heading south yesterday and heading west last Sunday, with only sea to the east, the logical conclusion was to head north this time. I also enjoyed this tour, so many views and experiences to take in. At the end I was really happy when it was almost all downhill from Puntallana.
