Day 5: Santilana del Mar to Ribadisella

Miles cycled: 58

Elevation: 4653 ft

It might have taken me three coffees, one mocha, two coca colas, an entire bar of 90% dark chocolate and all the bounce balls in my bag, but we made it.

Alice preferred fuel was chocolate cake… for breakfast!

Followed by some unknown substances from a morning shopping spree in the gorgeous Santalina del Mar…

Somehow we survived headwinds, rain, mountains and more route malfunctions.

There might be a mutiny tomorrow, but for now I’m looking forward to eating my own weight in carbs.


On the plus side – Alice, as ever – was amazing! Making the fairly unbearable bearable. There were glimpses of some stunning scenery in the pauses between rain showers!

No energy left to write or really think, but we are thinking of our friends in London – scary times! Keep safe!
