Downpour at Malaga

Posted by admin On Febrero - 12 - 2010

Iván: today our training day to get prepared to cross Europe by tandem passes by Andalusia, from Fuengirola to Tarifa. When we finished, our odometers (I speak in plural because we have 2) counted 142 kilometers, although our perfect quantity for a good training day would be around 160. But rain and the continuous traffic of the A-7 have made this day much harder than usual.

Regarding what we can recommend about the area, it would be the people, kind and helpful, their beaches, with fine sand and good temperatures, and the “pescaíto frito” (fried fish). Nowadays, unfortunately for cyclists, it is a denied terrain, a “bad place” to ride on a two-wheel engine-free device, specially for tandems. Please don´t misunderstand this: I mean to cross MALAGA – TARIFA, because I´m sure that the rise to RONDA or the interior area is pleasant and perfect to go by bike. In fact, after asking a policeman about the possibilities we had to go to Tarifa, he answered us about the difficulties that we would have to suffer to arrive there: double-lane road and almost without shoulder, and unfortunately very little respect for cyclists. In fact, there are several cyclist clubs in the area that claim about the need of more suitable roads and the possibility of cycle lanes, instead of the quantity of kilometers that the politicians of this country have allowed to build near the beach and without any remorse, literally eating the marvelous coasts of this area.

Greetings and, as you know: tomorrow from Tarifa to Arcos de la Frontera. Let´s see if instead of tandem we finish pedaling on a scooter…
