Patrick O'Hara commented on To Valencia

Congratulations Scott and Rachel on another wonderful tour! Thanks for sharing your photos, video (Rachel) and your always entertaining and informative (and well-written) experiences. It may be wet and cold in Vancouver, but your daily journal added warmth and happiness to our days, as well as a burning pang in our stomachs to return to Europe next summer. You are both an inspiration. Enjoy your time off the bikes.

It’s nice to see I can still do climbs. Fortunately it was gradual!

It’s really been an outstanding tour, and eye opening. After three months it will be nice to get back to our own culture for awhile, but we’re both going to miss it. Some of our best cycling ever.

What a day! For all its spectacular-ness (spectacularity?), I think the muddy shoes are just a blip on the AdversityMeter.

Look forward to reading about Valencia!

OK, not so simple after all. I give up. We’re going back to America.

Um, that would be 'un' preceding a singular masculine noun.

But pretty close! ¡Muy bien, Señor Anderson!

Sorry. You were warned though.

Yep! At least it's not 'flying rock'.

Very unusual, indeed! Would love to know the full story .. purpose, cost of labor to place, etc.

Let us know if you find out anything.

So much nicer to look at than hectares of plastic!

Rachael - you look relaxed and happy enough to take on a few more summits today.

You go, girl!

That is a beautiful sign! And 1.5m seems safe. I've never seen a sign in the US specifying the safe passing distance and it makes me wonder what it is from state to state.

I think in Oregon it's 3ft. And from what we've observed in CO, it's "We don't have time or patience for cyclists and pedestrians." That's how it feels in suburban Denver, at least. There may be safe pockets somewhere in the state(?)

Anyhow, good for Spain! Almost everything you've shared in this journal will make it a likely tour destination for the Grumbys. I, in particular, am especially fond of feeling safe from vehicular assassination.

Better here than the endless suburbs of Denver, I’d think.
