JL: It’s been awhile since I last took this trip. The first time I was here , a good friend of mine collapsed when reaching the top of Puerto de Arenillas (900 meters). He drank his water and mine; he also gobbled all the energy bars we had, yet he was tough enough to continue all the way through.
The last 20 kilometers, as we were getting back home, we were literally pushing him. Just about any cyclist has gone through that, though.

The route was:

Benicassim- Castellon- Onda- Montanejos- Montan- Caudiel- Jerica- Segorbe- Algimia de Almoacid- Alcudia de Veo- Tales- Onda- Castellon- Benicassim. 180 kilometers on my own for over 9 hours; I blame it on the wind for the most part: uphill, downhill, left, right, even head wind.
I swear I can’t understand that atmospheric phenomenon; just like I can’t understand how windsurfers always get tail wind on them. I usually sit on the Benicassim beach and observe them; no matter where they head to, wind’s always on their side, but how come is that possible?.  It is pretty much the opposite with cyclists.

It seems like bikers love the road to Montanejo. Apparently, asphalt is quite good and there are lots of curves. It’s okay, let them have fun, but there were some of them that were over speeding.

I’m attaching a picture I took when I reached the top of Puerto de Arenillas (too bad I’m not in the picture, but somebody had to take it :-) .

We would like to take the time to thank everybody for all the comments of support; you really kept us going!.
