Day 160: Idanha

Breakfast at 7am!

So today was the 35th bithday of the Sinclair chap. So to celebrate this very special day we rode some 130 miles that included approximately 2500m of climbing and resulted in us burning some 7,000 calories in the process.

Accordingly we were some what tired when we arrived at the campsite, in the dark (8.30pm), having had dinner in Detroit; where we were served by a less than happy waitress.

Not only was this the first time that I have had to erect my tent in the dark I also passed the 100,000 metres of climbing milestone for the tour, which is equal to 328,084ft or climbing Mount Everest 11.3 times.
