Grand Day Out
Last Sunday, we had a lovely day out with some Spanish Biker friends.
We met at 8:30, expecting to go to either Ibi or Real Gandia. We set off, filled up, and then headed north on the CV60. Oh, I wonder where we're going then. Maybe Cullera? 20, 30 then 40 miles up the motorway and I wondered if we were going to the MotoGP at Aragon! But no - we then turned off and went to Naquera, in a beautiful area north of Valencia.
When we got there, there was a big bike meet (Matinal) with a marquee and hundreds of bikes. We paid 8 euros each, and got a T-shirt, breakfast baguette, slice of melon, drink, and nibbles. A little later, there was ham rolls and more nibbles, with a small glass of wine. Then, the tickets were all entered into a raffle, with a huge range of prizes, from childrens T-shirts, helmets and even holidays. Sadly, it wasn't our lucky day, but it was certainly a great day out. (And a very good opportunity for me to brush up on my Spanish!)
