Spring has arrived at Hotel Mas Pelegri. The wood violets are out, the birds are singing and we are having lovely sunny spring days. The local waterfall has been running, althouugh it is drying up fast and I even got out on a ride!
16th to 19th of February. The London Bike Show. Fiona, Luke, Hannah and Eli went to the show were we had a stand. We also took Lee and Louise from Eat Sleep Cycle and they had the stand next door. So we had a really fun 4 days meeting lovely cyclists, triathletes, mountain bikers and even people who said they didn’t bike. Well maybe they are now convinced they just need to get on a bike and start having fun. You are never too old to learn to bike. We also met previous guests including our competition winner from last year who now has moved from running to track riding and had his new track bike to show me. Remember you can still enter our competition to win a weekend for 2 self guided B&B including carbon bike rental.
The fabulous Lee Craigie and Emily Chappell of Adventure Syndicate came to visit our stand and Lee brought with her the brand new just been printed copy of "Joining the Dots: The Highland Trail 550"
We now have two other copes in the Hotel. Please go out and buy a copy of this wonderful book. It is a really interesting read and it also had another friend of ours included in the story, Liam Glen, who used to work here with us. Both Liam and Emily are down to ride the Transcontinental this year, so we will be following them through their endeavours. Good luck to all three of you.
More fast cycling ladies. The Cervelo Bigla professional cycling team. Their stay started with our early change in weather from Winter to Spring when we get a couple of days downpour. Mud is always good for a facial. See their video. But then the sun came out mid week to warm them and bring out their smiles. Gareth took them to the top of El Mont for their photo shoot. Patrick their mechanic worked so hard to keep all of their gorgeous Cervelo bikes beautifully clean and in working order.
The lovely ladies of the Adventure Syndicate training camp week. Women of all ages and all background with inspirational stories. The sun came out for the week to match their smiles.
Great fun happy week to start off the year.
