With less than three weeks before my departure for Spain and my annual bicycling trip, it is time to make sure that my blog is still functional and that I will be able to post updates. So, this post is basically a test. Starting around May 21st, I will attempt to make daily posts chronicling my adventures in the Catalonia region. I will leave home on the afternoon of May 18th and spend the night just outside the San Jose airport. In the morning of the 19th, I fly to Dallas, then Paris and finally Barcelona. From the airport I then have to take a train to the center of Barcelona and another train to Girona, our starting point. I will arrive there in the afternoon of the 20th, ready to start the tour the next day.
I am excited that three of my fellow cyclists and one of the guides are people that I have toured with before. So, I will have the opportunity to reunite with some old friends to and to make new ones. Over the course of our 12 days together, we will cycle 260-300 miles. (I feel more than ready with over 2200 miles under my belt so far this year, including a hilly 65 mile ride last Sunday).
