Easter Saturday

IMG_0039IMG_1204Walked down to Port de Pollensa to watch some time trials going from Tolos.  No celebrity riders around so we set off to Cala Picafort and Muro – a 35 mile round trip, promising to be back at the apartments for lunchtime.  A lovely, smooth ride, mostly flat with the group working well together.  Stopped for coffee and cake at Muro, having found the well hidden cafe and were rewarded with free oranges!

IMG_0042The group split with a few doing a longer stint to Inca and back via Campenet while the main bunch headed back to Pollensa in search of the Rapha pop-up shop.  Mostly flat, apart from the 18% lump near Pollensa golf course.  The Rapha shop remained elusive!  Lunch by the pool and a session on the sun loungers left us ready to do the short, sharp climb to Formentor at 5pm.

In the evening we all walked into town and found a table for 12 sitting outside at Tiberi.  It got a little chilly as the evening went on but the food was brilliant.  I had Mallorcan style fish – perch with spinach (a vegetable!!), tomatoes, raisins and potatoes.  Derek had pork loin with sobrasada wrapped in cabbage.
