Still like an oven.


The daytime weather is still like an oven. We have decided that for as long as Dave is supporting us we will try and get as many miles done as possible. Once he has left us we will find it difficult to get enough hydration. Dave is obviously able to carry more water than we can on the bikes. The more miles we can do in Spain before he goes back the better. Perhaps the Northern part of Spain will be cooler. Currently we are north of Montero. No bike problems at the moment and we are keeping our fingers crossed on that one. Our spirits are still high even though the heat is more intense than we have ever cycled in before. Average mileage covered over the past three days is in excess of 70 miles a day.

There's nothing worse than excessive heat, in my opinion (I know, I live in Las Vegas... how sick is that!) I hate the heat, so I'm feeling for you guys!

Sounds like a sensible plan!Nowadays the weather is so unpredictable all over the world, it's difficult planning these trips, no matter what. Good luck and enjoy every moment!
