Rest day in Gijon - Spain
A day to replenish those empty reserves of energy, rest and recover and try and eat a few nutritious meals before hitting the track again.
It turned out to be a great day to be indoors as incessant rain, hail and cold winds lashed Gijon.
Washing day for muddy sweaty clothing and a bike that needed maintenance and good scrub which could only happen in a bath tub using a shower hose. Necessity really is the mother of all invention!
The sun came out momentarily and Grant went out for a bit to to take some photos and buy some supplies.
A day finished off with a huge treat - a platter of delicious sushi from the local sushi spot two doors down from the Pension.
Gijon is located in the Bay of Biscay, the largest city in the autonomous community of Asturias in Spain. It has an economy largely based on tourism, steel production, livestock rearing and fisheries and it has quite a large population.
Lots of beautiful churches, a palace, a university and museums grace its seaside location and rocky headlands while the surrounding areas outside the city on the skirts of the mountains are mainly lush meadows and deciduous woodlands.
Tomorrow brings with it a newly planned route and hopefully the promise of sunshine and blue skies.
Counting down the kilometers to Santiago de Compostela, the last big city in Spain before the border crossing into Portugal!
The weather forecast is rainy and cold, but Crazybikeguy pedals on!
