SMCTC trip to Jalon, Spain in March 2019

Albert Smith, Sara Fagg, John Barker, Tony Moriarty and Gwynedd Miller all embarked on this tour, based in Jalon (Xalon) which is south of Alicante. They stayed in a country house with Russel and Frankie, who led the rides and also prepared the food.

Although Gywendd could not ride she still came along. She walked mostly on her own in excess of 60 miles. Although the rides were shortin distance the terrain was far from flat. The weather started at 31 degrees but very quickly declined to temperatures we are more used to, along with very strong winds some days.

The photographs do not give a true appreciation of the beautiful views we encountered from the tops of the climbs or the quality of the Spanish roads, virtually pothole-free.
