Tofay was another spectacuar riding. We startet in the Sierra Tejada with about 9ºC and arrived for lunch at the beach with sunny 25ºC . 2,5 hours later we have been up in the Sierra Nevada at an altitude of about 2100 m ( +6000ft) with snow and 2ºC what a difference.....and a Cafe con leche warmed us up again So we had from everything a little bit despite the breathtaking views and another 1000s.... of curves. Whatelse do you want
