As the photos below show I had a great time riding and was able to ride a different route every day with some variety each day. The Costa Blanca south of Alicante doesn't have any real mountains but has some decent elevation if you go looking for it as well as some great rolling roads through rural villages with very minimal traffic. With it being late December the temperatures started off in the low 50's and ended up at the mid-60's by the middle of the day.....would I go back for a more riding here even if the in-laws weren't here, for sure!
|Recovery Day coffee ride to Catrel
|Orange groves everywhere
|Rural roads without cars for miles
|Does it goes to 11? Nope just the 8 speeds!
|Good and empty roads
|This was the day I saw Pro rider Edvald Boasson Hagen on the road
|Gas station Belgium waffles!
|Cabezo de la Plata....6 miles of climbing stuff!
|Shall we climb?
|It wasn't all riding...
