Mtb Daytrip: Sliema, Gozo, Popeye Village

A full day on the bike in nice November weather, around 20 C and sunny.. Left Sliema 8.30 AM and headed on the main road towards the ferry to Gozo.. After espresso and cake I headed over to the smaller sister island and zig-zagged my way towards Ramla Bay on the north coast, a very pretty beach I wish I had visited while it was still summer and warm in the sea.. Back on Malta I found a couple of new challenging trails and passed Popeye Village, the settings of one of Robin Williams early movies.. Riding on a few more dirt roads up on ridges I headed home again, back in the flat about 8 hours after leaving it..
