Looking pretty rough down your way! We've had a few gales recently up in sunny NW scotland, I went out in it on thursday in 60mph+ gusts, hitting my 39/25 along the flat going into it :shock: VERY tricky to keep the bike stable in those winds. Think i'll be sticking to the turbo in future :D

Ive got a hotel about 5kms east of Caimari, which is the start of the climb up to Lluc.
Pop by, we are just off the main cycle path from PP to Inca.- although the roads are not that great..

wish id of know that, will bear it in mind next year, this is the first year im not on a organised training camp, would be nice to get a bit of local knowledge.

let me have some directions and i will pop round, or could meet up for a ride, you will have to be gentle with me though,

Our club should have a small group of about 5-7 riders tomorrow morning on a 45 mile ride. Should be about 25 degrees at the start and around 30 when we finish up. About 15 degrees below normal high for the day this time of year in the New York area. I'm almost 60 so I think I am starting to get too old for this stuff.
