The Day before Day 5
Day 5 on the Tour of Gran Canaria always strikes fear into the group, not helped by me goading the riders with the doings of the morrow.
This picture though from a few tours back shows us all frolicking like labradors in the natural sea pools in Agaete,whe
re we stayed 1 night at Roca Negra 4*.
It was a great time and we’re can all see the coast road down over the horizon to where lies Mogan. That’s what we’re pointing at. Everyone is totally amped at this point, maybe it’s because we’ve survived the 55km descent from Artenara, it’s a little stressful strafing down through dark Hobitton villages and then the world on the Piso Ferme road opens up like light and heaven.
The the whole tour is worth it just for that feeling.
