Today Jemison Cycling Tours rode from Cadaques to Olot. Riding through San Pere Pescadore to Banyoles for lunch. Banyoles is known for the 1992 Olympic rowing events and the lake there is fed by natural springs.
Along the way we stopped for water, coke, aquarius, fruit and took a picture of this:
At lunch, possibly because of some inspiration from earlier in the day; this arrived at our table:
Fine dining beats riding food today… After lunch and some Cafe amb llet we were ready to finsh the ride to Olot.
Today we started to taste some of the local foods but tomorrow night will be a highlight in terms of gastronomy. We have reservations and will be eating at Les Colls (http://www.lescols.com/).
The New York Times Travel wrote an excellent piece which can be read here: http://travel.nytimes.com/2006/07/16/travel/16check.html.
We are hoping for a great evening!

PS Think about it… you could eat at El Bulli (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Bulli) (Restaurant has judged El Bulli the best restaurant in the world a record five times) then ride your bike from Cadaques to Olot for another haut cuisine meal.
