20th May : New Walk – La Romana

Hello Everyone,  (updated 17th May)

Following the cancellation of the scheduled Chicamo River Wlak (due to the recent heavy rain) I have substituted a walk that we haven´t done for some time. So it will be new to many people. The walk starts on the outskirts of La Romana, at the Restaurante El Mirador, which is just off the roundabout on the CV-834 and up into the urbanisation. (The roundabout with the marble blocks that look like Fred Flintstone’s rockets.)

GPS MAPS: 38°22’34.96″N, 0°53’26.66″W for those relying on Sat Navs. There is plenty of parking around the restaurant and there is the possibility of refreshment and even a menu del día if you feel like it.

As usual we will depart at 10.00 and the walk is 13Km on good roads and tracks with a height gain of 415m, so it qualifies as a moderate walk, but the climbing is mostly steady over a long horizontal distance and there are no technical difficulties.

Sorry about this late change, but the walking must go on! I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Friday morning.
