London-Lisbon days 3 & 4

From Poitiers through to northern Spain has been fantastic. Great roads with almost no traffic and good competition.
We are doing pretty well with very few mistakes but up in the mountains we just don’t have enough pace to make some of the climbs without penalty, the descents are difficult also with some brake fade!

Currently we are 16th overall and first in class but hopefully the flatter terrain will be to our advantage for the rest of the week. Only 5 more days to go!

I’ve met some old friends along the way who turned out to support us and that was great to see them. 

We are now in the most luxurious monestry you are likely to see and the Gin is generously served!
No pictures today due to a very slow internet connection so I’ll load them asap.
