Long and Steep

Wednesday 6th June. The toughest day so far. Second longest distance at 111km and second greatest daily climb. Highest altitude attained so far at 1,086 metres.
Pleased with the ride although the left knee has started playing up again.
Weather forecast was bad so I was very fortunate today to more or less avoid the rain which was happening all around me.
On arriving in León visited the cathedral which is magnificent. Many Catholic cathedrals I find very dark and oppressive. But this was one of the wonderful ones.
Same distance tomorrow but flatter.
