So beautiful it is on Mallorca, there are too many cyclists on the roads in the springtime.
When i go there, it like it more during November or December. Quite and really alone on the road.

I seriously envy those people that can go ride for a while, stop and eat a meal with drinks and coffee, and then get right back on the bike to ride some more! If I’m out riding, and I stop longer than it takes to refill a bottle, I’d have to call 911 or a tow truck to come get me!! Regardless of the ride’s length!

Well written Image

Same applies for me!!

But I have also to admit that I don‘t really like having a break during my bike ride. I do really enjoy eating some bars on my bike.

Wow! Seriously impressive! How wide is this road? 6-7m max? And how fast where you entering the turn?

There abouts, Was a training session for hotdog crits, once a month the coaches get us together so a session and coffee. Basically just spun up to 35km/h ish and turn over and again.

Sounds like you need to ride more/longer distance. Seriously though, while our Saturday 3-hour social rides include a 10-15 minute break about half-way through, when the wife and I are on a bike vacation, we are riding most of the day (6-8 hours) so making one or two stop for food and drink is the norm.

While you are right about it, I’ll pass on that. I have done all day rides, and while I find them a good challenge occasionally, I don’t find anything beyond 4 hr fun in any way!
