Day19 friday 28/06/13PM Vitoria to Pancorbo

AM Took in an excellent tour of the Cathedral.  Also had time to have a look around the city. Really nice city.  The Cathedral was the inspiration for Ken Folletts book 'the pillars of thr earth'.  Found it hard to get out of Vitoria,  Roads as shown on the maps don't exist,  The WAY was not suitable for a buke.  Lost 2 hours.  Eventually I went down a track that was going in the right direction ,  It led to a tarmacked road . (pure luck). 
Nearly lost the bike on a decent.  It had picked up speed suddenly and I could not brake because of the surface.  The bike rode around the bend with no help from me. It just followed the bend.
Scenery amazing.  Hot but with a nice

breeze.  Pulled into a truckers hotel near Pancorbo.
