This morning I didn’t need suncream and fortunately the direction of the wind was the same.
I planned to visit the citadel at Peniscola but there were too many people.
After Peniscola a dirt road followed. Soon I stepped off and walked the bike. It was too steep. Later I could enjoy some downhills. But it wasn’t really a pleasure. I had to drive concentrated and tried to avoid the badest holes and stones. 12 km up and down on heavy dirt track.
Nearly at the end of the track I felt somewhat wrong with the rear tire. Less air and I had to pump air.
Three times I pumped then arrived at a view point were the regular road ended with some people.
I started the maintenance procedure but couldn’t fill the tube with air. Obviously the tire pump was malfunctioning.
As soon as I started maintaining an older man in bicycle dress came over and talked to me in Spanish and looked at me.
As I saw that the pump didn’t work I asked him for a pump and he helped me to fill the tube. I had used a new one.
Asap I will buy a pump!
At the next market store I bought something to eat and water and went on.
Driving along the beach I saw a kite and hoped to see a kite surfer because I admire these guys.
Yes there was a real hand. I looked for a place to sit and eat my lunch and look at him.
I put on the primaloft because the wind was heavy. He was an expert and I had so much fun with his show. For turning the direction he jumped and turned. Also he did some jumps 5 meters high and 10 meters long. Unbelievably!
Later I took the N340 (via Augusta) to make kilometers 😉
The last 12 km I found a bike path to Castello de la Plana.
