Well, we have started this blog to raise awareness of the proposed Glasgow to Barcelona Cycle ride by the National Clarion Cycling Club 1895 to remember a similar cycle ride made by two members of the Clarion Cycling Club in May 1938 to raise money to support the victims of the Spanish Civil War. But we are going in the heat of August and to make life even more interesting make a detour and travel through Spain from Bilbao via Gernika and Zaragosa to explore the places that still have aplace in the memory of this little known, but important conflict which some consider to be the precursor of World War Two.
