A two month bicycle tour that I made through the Iberian Peninsula from late September to late November 1998. In approximately seven weeks cycling I covered 3,500 km, visited four countries, drank many coffees and had a fantastic time.
During my first week in Portugal a hurricane had just finished demolishing part of central America and making it’s way across the Atlantic, when it arrived I was treated to almost constant rain for a week.
A first in many ways. The first major cycle trip I made to a foreign country. The first major trip I made to a non-English speaking country.
I kept a journal at the time, and took many photos. Now, five years later, its finally time for me to write up the online version! Until then, there’s only bits of my as I update them.
