Cycling is great for resting the joints and yet giving your legs and cardio vascular system a full workout. On a hilly challenge like the Bob Graham I'm convinced that lots of long days cycling really helps. So 5 days in the Costa Blanca, based at Abdet, resulted in 400 miles and 40,000 feet of ascent. All of course in glorious weather.
The final day consisted of a mega 100 mile circuit finishing with the 2,500 foot climb back up to Abdet, 25 kms inland from Benidorm. The superb mountain scenery makes the training a pleasure!
Highlights are the massive climbs and descents, some up to 25 miles long, on perfect tarmac with very little traffic. More details at www.abdet.com
