Matt Houlbrook: mobile historian; beard growing, head shaving; occasional cycling.
The annual mid-life crisis road cycling trip to Mallorca — slightly later this year, and Adam and I going alone without Dave for company.
Headwinds and the heat of the sun; two-up chaingangs and chasing down other rides; endless switchbacks and stunning scenery on big days out in the big mountains; Puig Major and the Col de Soller.
Five days; 328.56 miles; and 22,032 feet of climbing.
Roll on next year, I can’t wait for Mallorca 2016.
