Follow me as I ride from Calpe to Moraira along the Costa Blanca Coast.
Ordering new bike gear over the internet can be fraught with problems, have you picked the right size, is the colour shown accurate, will it be comfortable? All of these issues and more were floating around my head as I looked at various websites to choose my next pair of biking jeans. I needn't have worried though, as one call to Julie from Hood Jeans, put my mind at ease.

Tues 14th July 2020
After the long journey to my parent's house in North Yorkshire, see Part 1, I had the rest of Sunday off the bike and then the Monday too, to catch up with them and rest a little. By Tuesday though I was itching to get the bike out and go exploring my old stomping ground and visit my daughter and family. I also had a visit to one of my UK banks to fit, in to sort out a non-functioning debit card amongst other things.
Another early start to avoid the heat, this time with long term Bikers España follower and friend Roger The Fast Fontanero (retired). After posting a ride on the Bikers España FB group I wasn't sure how many would turn up, however, it is the end of July and far too hot for most. There are a few people I can rely on though who will turn up if at all possible and Roger is one of them.
