It was a wet and windy ride through what was very beautiful mountainous countryside, olive groves and nut orchards, very similar to Tuscany, but a lot wetter.
We met a couple of cyclists from Rotterdam, Holland at lunchtime. We shared a bus shelter whilst it rained and ate bread and cheese, they’re on the third week of their tour and like us are here for the weather!
Alhama de Granada is a small hilltop town, we’re actually quite high in the mountains here, probably at around 1000m so it should be mostly downhill back to the coast tomorrow.
