Day5 Villadangos Del Paramo to El Acebo

Day5 Villadangos Del Paramo to El Acebo


We had an early start today aiming to do 50 mile as we knew we had a hard climb upto the highest point of the trip at 1,550m. However we set off like numpties in the dark and had to turn round as we couldnt see where we were going!!! Had to wait until first light then had a good ride to the beautiful town of Astorga and did 20 mile in just under 2 hours.

We then had the big climb which was very challenging up up up for 20 miles round hairpin bend after hairpin bend. Just as we reached the summit it started to rain and we stopped for a hot choc but we had to leave and over the next 5 miles it rained and thundered so we were forced to stop as we were extremely wet and cold. Staying in a hostel high on the mountain with awesome views. Weve not hit our target today so have to make it up tomorrow???
