It rained during the night and throughout the morning so rather than complete the climb and more importantly , the descent, on slippery roads we took a rest day in our comfortable hotel.
Rode into town in the afternoon only to find there had been a cow festival on with what seemed like lots of prizes awarded... but we missed all of that. Had no idea it had been on. Watched the goings on and the loading of cows on trucks and the general buzz of activities. There was only one stall left selling food and it was GF!!! So exciting. Tortilla sort of things made from corn with grilled sausages. Closest thing to a sausage sizzle we’ve seen
Stopped at a nice terrasse in the town for a drink before cycling back to hotel (couple of kms out of town) via little streets
Back at hotel we washed the bikes and chains on the back lawn. All ready to head to Pamplona tomorrow.
