    Just been away with work for a conference, our very nice bosses thought we needed a bit of treat for making it through the last 2 years, so took us on an all expenses paid 4 day trip to Tenerife. :020:

    There was some worky stuff to deal with and a few organised meals we were expected to attend. Saturday was a do what ever you want day  :187: so I hired a bike  :164:

    The guy had a raft of bikes to choose from https://tenerife-moto-rent.com/#

    I opted for a 650 bm for a bimble up the mountain.. :028:

    19c when I set off but only 5c at the top, only had summer gear with me so it was a tad cold..  :190: :190: :190:

    An accident on some black ice stopped play, not me, a few cyclists, a motorbike and a couple of cars. Rounded a bend into the shade and all hell broke out, I coasted across the road to where there was a strip of Sunlight and pulled up. Looking ahead I saw lots of shaded areas so decided to head back the way I came. I had about 5 hours out on the bike, cold but very enjoyable, had the best Hot Chicken sandwich ever, from a little café in the mountains...
