 DAY 2º

 THE WAY OF SAINT JAMES FROM MADRID

     
 

- "Today we cross the mountains of Guadarrama. It is the Central Channel, which divides the peninsule into two parts: To the south they are the dry, yellow and violet plains of La Mancha; to the north, tomorrow, will open over our bikes the plains more greens and wet of the kingdoms of Castilla and León. Fields of barley, oats, wheat, old villages of stone with red tile and iron..."

 

 
 

      At 09.00 hours departure from the Coffee-bar "Aribel" of the hotel "Longinos", close to the train station of Cercedilla, northward, where it leaves the road for go up to La Fuenfria Pas.   Everyone should get from his accommodation early and ready. Because we exit northward at this time together.  We start uphill from the beginning climbing the mountain pass of La Fuenfria. Those who stayed in Navacerrada to sleep yesterday today should raise a little more early; from there until the coffee-bar and hotel "Longinos" of Cercedilla there are a good hour bicycling... The mountains of Guadarrama are crossed by a wide and compact track that climb 14 kms.  The panoramic views are spectacular.  Especially arrived at "Los Miradores", at mid-slope.   Usualy, we reached the top of La Fuenfria Pass at 12.00 or 12.30 h. ¡Spectacular!. Then, we enjoy 2 hours of a very beautiful downhill, one of the most spectacular areas around "The Way of Saint James from Madrid".  ¡Amazing!.

      In the afternoon we arrive to Segovia and we rest.  They are time enough to be installed in the accommodation chosed for each pìlgrim, rest and visit the town; the aqueduct, the cathedral, the casttle of Isabel the Catholic, his streets, its hidden corners...
