January has been a beautiful month with plenty of winter sun. In between trips with clients, an important task is that of designing and riding new routes. We´re often adding routes to our diverse selection as a way of catering for all levels of rider.
The objective of today´s trip was to put a few finishing touches to a route that we´ve been working on a for a while.
The day started with a climb up a very quiet mountain road as a way to gain a lot of height in a relatively short time period. The trees were in full blossom and provided an encouraging sign that Spring is not far away.
We then took to the trails, to begin the day´s first descent. The first section was rocky and demanded care but was a pleasure to ride.
There followed another steady climb up onto a col between two peaks, which gave great views across the sierras.
The day ended with a beautiful descent back to the valley, the stunning blue of the Mediterranean providing a fantastic backdrop.
