Solsona – Lleida

Finally, I was able to catch a rather early morning and left my hotel around 9:30. I hadn’t been too good at this the previous days. From Solsona, I headed west, and took the last small climb before descending into flatter lands beyond the Pyrenees again.

Even though I descended a net 500 meters overall on the day, it was riddled with many small counter climbs. Initially, I had my day planned to Mollerussa, but my legs were feeling good, so I added 30 km to go into Lleida instead. There was a bit of wind, especially later in the day, on very long straights leading into Lleida.
