It has been a while since I've posted something, as everybody knows, life is busy and nothing really happened
post Giro/Italy visit, Tour de France, sure, it was a good show put on by some really fast and talented kids, not so by a getting old Texan, lets wait until he shows up in Kona to do Ironman in 2011.
By the way, talking about 2011, that crazy grouchy German guy came up with this stupid idea to leave our rock and fly to another one just to ride our bikes, sleep well in comfy beds, fill up our bellies with the fantastic local cuisine and taste the good vine of the region.
This time it will be Mallorca. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mallorca Also known as the "Riders Paradise" on the European continent.
Mallorca is truly one great place to ride a bike, choosing a place on the east coast for our headquarters,
Sa Coma, gives us the option to ride in several different directions every day.
I can't wait to ride up "Puig San Salvador", an about 1500' climb, lots of switchbacks, to the oldest monastery of Mallorca. Incredible views from the top in each direction .
Our hotel with a funny name: Hotel Blau Mediterraneo
We'll be there from May 7th to May 18th, for all inquiries please contact me at OIBHawaii@aol.com.
If we can get more than 10 riders we'll qualify for a group discount.
The hotel offers half board, that means that we have a breakfast and a dinner buffet daily.
Destination airport is Palma de Mallorca (PMI), it takes two days to get to Palma, so please make sure when you make flight arrangements that your journey starts on the 5th.
