Ready to Join?

Hi again,

ATTENTION, THE EVENT of 19th of May HAS BEEN CHANGED TO 9th OF JUNE because of the WEATHER, COLD and RAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The reason is that the Vermouth place, because of the weather forecast, wanted to arrange the table inside and suggested better changing the date.

"BIKING along de coast with practically touching the sea all the time and savouring/sitting/tasting ESPINALER TAVERN, this time the one in the big warehouse at the top of the village, where products are packet to go from Japan to the other extrem of the world.

Read it carefully before joining, so you can be sure what we will do adapts to your requirements :

I will restrict to only 15 again for the requirements of the food place. I asked if booking the terrace was possible, because of the bikes and it's nice if the weather is good, and they said no, but that if we arrived around 13:00h and were no more than 15 persons, they didn't think there was a problem.

So, we will meet at 10:00h on dot at Protected content and will wait for 10' to begin. All is flat except when in Vilassar to go up through the vilage until the warehouse. Which is quite up, anything terrible, but still a kind of climb. Also it's important to notice that the streets to arrive there are slighly narrow but with respect and education riding is not going to be a problem.
Another thing to be mentioned is that the coastline bike path stops when we arrive at Premia de Mar (and we have done it with Internations other times- photos here are picked up from real Internation momments I did the same) obliging to enter the village and ride for a little while paralel to the main car route (safely). It's very much safe, but it's not so beautiful as until here.
All is flat except the last part, but some good physical condition is required and bikes checked as sometimes over last years when I organised this, or somebody wasn't following well or some rented bike didn't run well, which were slightly a problem.

Once in Vilassar, before or after, at least, we'll take the time to bike the beautiful streets (going down much better probably and a must too would be enter the famous sculptors modernist cemetery when passing there)

At 13:00h we will be atProtected content Please check the page in english too and behind Contact, the different menus will appear, the cheapest one 16'90 euros I think to remember they told me it was very good and practical to do the Vermouth. Also make a look at Catalogue and a little the history of the place. I like very much how it has stil the same friendly closeness atmosphere from the past, and it's stil in the same family's hands, despite having internationalised :

Bring also swimming clothes if the day is good and someone wanted to continue celebrating in the beach and another thing is that the train R1 direction Barcelona is every 15 minutes and it takes around 35 minutes to arrive to Plaça Catalunya. If someone wants to return by train, it's possible, if someone wants to ride for a while and take the train in the middle it's also possible or just return riding.

Me, as always I organise this, are not going to return to Barcelona as I live next village up.

This is all, except, for stronger Internations policy to help the consuls organise events, DON'T JOIN IF YOU ARE NOT SURE AND DON'T FORGET TO CANCEL YOUR ASSISTANCE IN CASE YOU CAN'T.

This helps to organise activities and gives the opportunity to everybody, in case of a waiting list, to enrol.

NOTE: Everyone is responsible for his/her own safety and whatever problem with the bike.
Bring : Helmet if you want
Water, sun screen, breakfast, swimming clothes, towel, etc, whatever you need for an activity like this.

Again, looking very much to do this in your company!!
