A WEEK OF SKATING IN MALLORCA, SPAIN (Day 5)
by Daniel Edman of Stockholm, Sweden

Thursday means, for most of the group, taking the bus to Palma de Mallorca on the west coast, and skating back across the entire island, in what proves to be a nasty head wind and asphalt conditions that are far from good.

All this Im totally unaware of when I and 6 others walk up the 2nd highest mountain of Mallorca at 4000 ft altitude. The climb is performed in T-shirts since it is almost calm up here. At the summit we can view the sea almost all the way around Mallorca. Only one part of the island is hidden behind the highest peak, which is a closed military area that cannot be entered.

From the summit we carefully study the flat land between Palma and Alcudia, but our fellow skaters are not to be spotted anywhere down there. Maybe they are having a break?

Distance/Altitude/Speed
In order to climb this mountain we rented a car and drove up to 1600 ft altitude. The road was steep, narrow and winding with tight hairpin curves, and we overtook a number of bicyclists working their way up the mountain. If anyone had told me I was going to skate on this road the very next day, I would have immediately called a doctor for that person, but little does a man know about his future.

Later that day I meet all the tired skaters who made it from Palma, and when asking Johan about the plans for the next day he answers with a question: - How is the asphalt in the mountains? Im convinced Johan has gone crazy and I therefore do not reply.
