On the shore of the Besòs river, in Montcada i Reixac.



Anti-Retro Expedition

5 days ago I went with some friends on a bicycle route, and they showed me some new paths where I still hadn't been before. Nice -I though- so when I need to go in this area again, I will already know which paths I could take. Little I knew, that 4 days later, the hash would fall no more than 10m from the path that went along the shore of the river. It caught me kind of on surprise (well, when doesn't it, right?) and I wasn't sure if I would be in the mood to go again in this area. Keep in mind, I would be going in the afternoon, there is no shade no where near here and it's 30ºC (86F)...


But I was in the mood :) Packed sufficient water, helmet, backpack, everything ready and... what? The tire is flat? Ah, that was a real bummer. I almost called it off, but, ok, I will change it. The thing is I will have to go there with no spare one. I never need it on the road anyway, do I? I though I had checked the bike the night before. Apparently I did not (?).

But that was it. Took off 20 minutes later than expected but the rest went as planned. Found the way with no problems, managed the heat correctly, had enough water and I found a few geocaches on the way.

Pictures of the hash where also taken, in the very same path only 4 days later, and then I went on discovering Ripollet, to see how the bike-roads are there in case I need to plan a future expedition on that direction.

3 hours later I arrived back home. And that was that.



Reaching Montcada after crossing the highway. 
Already on the river shore looking south. You can see the same mountain as on the previous picture. 
Reeds where the hash fell. 
Parking Frühlingskiefer looking north. 
Proof with GPSr. 
Crossing the river, looking north. 
Same spot as before, but looking south. That hill belongs already to Barcelona. 
Sculpture in Ripollet called Llevantada (strong wind from east). 


SastRe.O with Frühlingskiefer earned the Bicycle geohash achievement
by cycling 38.9km to and from the (41, 2) geohash on 2021-07-16.

As proof, there is the tracklog from monday which was already duly uploaded on osm already ;)
