Hi

Just uploaded some more clips from our trip to Majorca earlier this year, filmed on 14th April if anyone has forgotten what decent weather looks like!

    Good stuff, love the puff of smoke from the back tyre at 9.53!

    (Still think the music needs some work though!)

    Music is a strange thing, one man's meat is another man's poison and all that. The nice thing about making short videos is that you get to choose the music you want which can never suit everyone, and you can make as many versions as you like using different music :-)

    Lucky git!

    If I don't do at least 2 trips a year to Majorca, I get a bit twitchy.......fortunately I have a brother-in-law, and an old mate that work in Palma on the yachts.

    Ah 14th April, where was I then? Sitting on the beach at Port de Pollenca as I recall 8)

    Lukcy git! I went to Mallorca by coincidence really as it was all booked without consideration for cycling. I'd love to be able to have a week (or even a weekend) there in the Spring and Autumn.

    That looks absolutely sublime. Gorgeous blue skies and sweeping descents, sheer magic.

    Id go Autumn- Spring has now got scarily busy, especially round this part of the island, with cyclists.

    Too right i went over the mountains both yesterday and today and its heaving with tourist cars allready too. Beautiful weather though. I did laugh the radio yesterday said the next eight days pure sun. They never mentioned the 50mph winds battering me all sodding day though. Its a lovely place for cycling this is true.

    I was there for a hard hilly hot week back at the end March and oh back there for another week on Monday 8)

    I was there a month ago. I've never known the winds to be so bad or cold [long sleeves] in Spring.

    I'm still here its hot & windy and surprisingly quieter on the roads than march, I've so far also managed to add 1 mph avg to the routes I did back in march.
