Picnic lunch in a scenic and shady spot (see Food and Drink)

2.30 to 4pm

More fantastic riding, finishing with a thrilling descent to the farmhouse for a refreshing drink / tea and cake

Evening

Relax on the terrace as the sun sets with a drink or two before a hearty dinner. In summer there are quite a few local fiestas to visit if you like late nights and firecrackers!

If the weather is especially hot we may start and finish earlier. We always try to do the majority of the climbing in the cooler hours of the day.
