Lunch on Christmas eve at the Village Hotel in Bettystown.
Mallorca 2023 with Team Sanchez. Fabulous trip. Rented a villa near Port de Pollenca and some Pinnarello bikes. Cap Formentor, one of the most beautiful rides I know of, then Sa Calobra this time with full bidons. I’d done it solo two years previous, and forgot to refill before the climb…. then a Col de Sóller loop, with torrential rain before getting back to Pollenca for a drink.
One day of non-cycling as is tradition now – and a forced march up Santuario del Puig de Maria. A sign at the bottom said 50 minutes to walk up, which we took as a challenge!
