Riding like Quijote

During the Day, but Lounging Like the Doncel at Night

Doncel of Siguenza

I’m not totally hip to the stories, but I’m pretty sure whoever Quijote was, he did some riding.  Having done several visits now to visit the In-laws in Spain, it is safe to say that we have distilled things down to a very comfortable routine.  Here’s is the template:

  1. Pack for heat and bicycling around Sigüenza.
  2. Fly to Madrid.
  3. Head for Sigüenza.
  4. Breakfast, Ride, Lunch, Nap, Walk or Spin, Merienda, Dinner.
  5. Repeat for as long as we are there.
  6. Pack bikes, go to the airport.

We go to Sigüenza because my wife’s family has their country house there.  Sort of like going up to the Camp, kind of like Lyon Mt., but not really.  I’ve been biking for decades (!) and in many places, I declare the quality and variety of bike riding around Sigüenza to be 8 out of 10.  We are riding both on and off-road. The following map is our comfortable range which we can explore by bike doing 3-5 hour day-rides (me Single Speed w/Trail-a-bike).
