Some enjoyed the 25K ride along the Mar Menor towards Lo Pagan and return along the N332 where they met up with the 50K riders who had taken a more circuitous route via Dolores de Pacheco, along the canal side to Pilar then through El Mojon to the Mar Menor. All getting together with a few non cyclists for a memorable lunch at the restaurante Pizzeria D´Maria in San Javier where we were admirably looked after by Juan and his wife with what turned out to be a great three hour lunch. Our next ride is scheduled for March 17th. All members and guests are welcome and if they don´t cycle they are welcome to join us for lunch, Routes and venue to be advised.Pictured above L to R Paul Shard, Keith Redgers(guest), Graham Platts and Andy Grant all suitably hungry and ready to eat.
Benidorm Palace Visit made 23rd – 25th March by coach to Banidorm. The journey to Benidorm was via Guadalest for a walk around this interesting village but the rain was so heavy all members decided to abandon the plans and carry on to the Hotel Torre Dorada in Benidorm. The courier arranged lunch for us at the hotel with the rest of the day to ourselves.
The next day was a better day for the weather and all were free to go into the town or beach and enjoy themselves until being taken by coach to Benidorm Palace for the evening.
At the Palace we all had a very good four course meal with wine and Cava. The show itself was up to the usual high standard and everyone enjoyed the entertainment. We returned by coach to the hotel about 1.00am.
The next morning we left after breakfast and stopped en route for a tour of the Valor Chocolate factory. Interesting presentation of the factory was given and we all ended up visiting the shop to sample the products and buy what we wanted.
