After 550 km, I decided I had cycled enough. The weather had changed and it was raining hard now so cycling wasn’t much fun any more.
The train to Santander took 3hrs, and as we were getting on, we met two more cyclists doing the same thing. Only problem was the train guard was a jobsworth and refused to let more than 5 bikes on the train. Gavin and Emma let us on and waited 6hrs for the next train.
Santander isn’t as nice a city as Bilbao or San Sebastian but I got to see Jorge and Marta and their baby Leo before we caught the boat to Portsmouth the next afternoon.
