Canary Islands, Getting Ready!
5 weeks from today, I arrive on the island. I am excited! Normally this feeling doesn’t happen until a week before the race, but for the past two weeks I have felt pretty good with my training with the exception of one ride. Two weeks ago I got to ride 100 miles of the Lanzarote course via Computrainer; it is so much easier than my previous 70 mile attempt, where the flats had been cut. It was such a confidence booster! My concern for this race is more the ride than anything else; climbing a volcano in the heat and wind…lot of climbing. How happy I am to live on a flat lakefront where it was snowing this morning in the middle of April; it seems to work out really well with my training plan – NOT. But today I am not writing about my training or experience of racing. Today I am asking for a little help from you who have traveled to my next destination – Lanzarote.
While I am in Lanzarote I am looking for a little adventure:
Is there anything specific I should see on this island…off the beaten path?
Eating – are there hidden gems that only the locals go?
Sites – breathtaking and beautiful that only seeing could do justice?
Is there a way to go 20 miles to the coast of Morocco?
On my overnight in Madrid – what is the one thing I should see and place to eat?
If you have any thoughts or comments, please leave one. I am open to any adventure and my boundaries are limitless!
