Rest Day


The rest day was spent based at the parador "San Marcos" in Leon. The paradors are goverment-run luxury hotels which are set in ancient buildings all across Spain. The participants generally rested and went to visit the gothic cathedral nearby in the old town.

Jimmy also replaced Paul's front chainring with a much more suitable triple chainring o give him an appropriate low gearing for the hills to come. Bikes were genrally checked out and cycling clothes were prepared for the days to come.
