Collsacabra, Spain



Anne and I spent the past week in lovely sunny Spain, well apart from three evening downpours. Luckily though it stayed dry during daylight hours and we got out to explore the ancient bandit region of the Collsacabra.
This was Anne's fourth visit to the area and my fifth, but there is still plenty left to explore so I expect we will be going back.
Our base at Olot town is an hours drive from Gerona airport connected to Prestwick airport by Ryanair flights twice a day.
This time we hired mountain bikes for a day, not very good bikes but we covered quite a lot of ground through the beach forest to Santa Pau, a well preserved medieval village connected to Olot by some nice rough trails.

The Editorial Alpina maps of the area are excellent but not perfect as demonstated by us spending 3 hours trying to get a walk in a badly mapped set of tracks up at Col de Bracon, nice enough but a navagational lesson learned the hard way.

Now I've all the BTT mountain bike route maps I'd really like to get out there with a decent mountain bike on some of the easier stuff, maybe next spring if I can convince my cycling chum to go.
