The night started hot. But in the morning it was really cold. I was dressed with t-shirt, fleece and primaloft jacket. Only the feet were a bit cold.
I have set the alarm on 8 and got up at this time.
I went up to lake Caldera and enjoyed the absolute silence but after 5 minutes a group of hikers arrived. They filled their water bottles with water from the lake. I would never do. But, I believe they would use tablets to make the water safe.
After drying and packing I started at about 10.
3.000 meters downhill, unbelievable.
The single trail was the same than yesterday and demanding.
I trusted in my bicycle and drove quite fast. There was one stone in the middle of the trail, I saw it but couldn’t avoid the blow. Within seconds the air was away and I stopped immediately.
The tube was destroyed so I replaced it.
There were crowds of mountain biker coming up in groups of 10 to 20. All of them dressed the same. It looked like a race.
The single trail moved to a dirt track. Then it was time to take breakfast: cheese with breakfast I had bought on Thursday at Granada 😉
In an altitude of about 1.700 the asphalted road started and I was really glad and enjoyed the high-speed with lots of turns and less traffic.
It got warmer and warmer.
Along the road were so many fountains and creeks that I felt like to be at home.
Unfortunately I couldn’t find a room I had to go to Almuñécar.
