day 13 – wind turnbine

We rode through a national park today scoping out an XC loop on Ride Portugal’s brand new Trek 6300 rental bikes.  The national park is full of wind turbines and you can ride right up to them.  This is the closest I’ve ever been to a wind turbine.  They are really big.  It was surprisingly difficult to catch the shot with one of the blades exactly at the bottom.  Took about 7 tries.  Think I need to improve my timing a bit.

    Yes, these machines are indeed enormous.
    We have a few on the West Coast, though not on the scale of those in the North Sea.
