Today was awesome. The first 40km to Reinosa along the N611 with Pablo and his dog, Hippy was up and down but not hard at all. And I didn’t need to go fast because we left quite early. After stopping for a bite to eat we parted company as I was heading towards Santander and Pablo was going to Colombres.

From Reinosa there was a 9.5% descent. Silver flew down this getting up to 60km ph and this went on for km after km. I started to worry that it would turn into a massive climb but this time what went down did not come back up.
I just freewheeled for miles. It was so easy I had to smile. I think I even shouted “Woooohooooo” at one point. Sooo much fun.

The last 30km to Santander were a bit of a grind, with some killer hills at the end.
But what a great day.

115km today. 1944 km so far.
