Cycling!

Hey everyone! How is everything going? I'm still enjoying my last weeks in sunny Spain! Today, my friend and I decided to change our usual plans of laying on the beach to do something that burns more energy. See that hill with a castle on top on the picture below? We decided to get there by bike. Whether it was the right thing to do or not, it felt good to do some sport!


I'm saying I'm not sure whether it was the right thing to do or not because it was actually too hot outside to even walk up there. Moreover, we couldn't choose any other time of the day than noon. Smart boys.

Anyways, I can't remember how long it took to get up there with our bikes (and actually pedaling the whole way) but we made it!


I must say that the views from the castle are my favorite views of my town. Nevertheless, they are even more beautiful after having reached the top by bike and not by car, as I usually do. Plus it was a very beautiful day!


The best part of the day, with no doubts, was going down. That was a blast! It felt like it took us forever to get up the hill, but the way down was only a few minutes that felt like seconds. I didn't have to pedal once, because the road is quite dangerously steep.

Right after getting back to the city, first thing to do was to jump in the water and enjoy a cold beer to compensate and let our bodies know that we're still on holidays.

I hope you had a great day. Thanks for reading and see you soon!
