Relatively short stage but with quite a few climbs, especially the two main ones where we climb 200m, the second one having a very steep slope.
Maintenance (continued) I took advantage of the unstable weather in A Coruña to tighten my brakes. They are particularly stressed on the many steep descents, and next time I’ll have to change them. I only took a spare pair of brake pads, so I will probably have to buy some or stop at a repair shop.
Beautiful road that follows the coast or alternatively passes in forests of Eucalyptus. It’s steeper than the main road but it’s worth it for the view and the calm.
For the last few kilometres after Buño I rejoin the national road, and right at the end it starts to rain. As the manager of the hotel in A Coruña en Galicia used to say, either it’s hot or it’s raining, and it shows all day long!
