Wine Country Tours, Tastings and Experiences

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

The bicycle is a great way to get around Southern Catalunya wine countryand enjoy real quality time with friends and family. It allows you to discover scenic roads, beautiful and peaceful country lanes and unique pilgrim routes to visit villages, castles, restaurants and small family cavas and wineries.

wine tours catalonia 300x163 Wine Country Tours, Tastings and ExperiencesSouthern Catalunya and the wine regions such as Penedès, Conca de Barbera, Montsant and Terra Alta invite you to live a unique experience and discover a collection of innovative and well tended wine gardens that start one hour south of Barcelona city. Penedès is the most innovative wine region in Spain. Cava is its most well-known product but there are excellent white wines, bold rosés and complex fruity reds. El Molí Tours provides transport, cultural, historic and gastronomic back-up to make cycling to the vineyards and wineries of Penedès and Southern Catalunya, a truly great experience.

Good wine is as important as a good company and life is too short to drink bad wine. For this reason, if you are interested in having a great wine experience, it is important to find the perfect balance between tradition and modern, innovation and expertise, food and wine, people committed to discovering new wines and wine-makers, small wineries, wonderful gastronomy and charming historic corners.

This is not only a touristic experience but a contribution to the sustainable development of enotourism in the region. Don’t forget that there are many ways to get to Penedès from Barcelona… hiring a car in Barcelona is a good option to consider.

One Way Car Hire in Zadar

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

One way car hire in Zadar is the ideal car hire option for anyone who is planning to start their journey here and end it somewhere else without returning to Zadar between times.  Typically, such journeys might be made between two airports, two railway stations or two cities, but either way, one way car hire in Zadar allows your travel loop to be completed.

One way car hire in Zadar normally carries a price premium levied by the car hire companies for the additional work involved in one way car hires.  That said, if you shop around you can normally find low and sometimes will even find no premium deals available.

Sixt Sponsored Bike Wins Award

Friday, July 15th, 2011
The bike started in its first practice a little shaky but hey ho went good enough to qualify for a 4th place grid start averaging an initial practice speed of 69.83 mph lapping out at 46.4 seconds per mile , the first race saw  the bike leave the grid in a crowd of bikes and thunder to a 6th place finish with an increase of average speed now standing at 71.52 mph lapping out at 45.29 seconds per mile . A lovely start for the bike Sunday however was a little different we suffered a humiliating heat. After complaining of a really big flat spot   at 25/50% throttle we confirmed  the fault was a sparkplug so a new set was put into the bike.  This now meant that as we were unable to get the flying start we had so much hoped for, we were placed on the back of the grid, anyway the flag dropped the bikes went off into the distance and the vfr launched it way through the back markers to finish in a very respectful 7th place and again the average speed per lap was raised to 72.35 mph lapping out at 44.79  seconds per mile .
Every practice heat and race the bike got better and better as you will see from the above. It was also seen in the parade and Alex has now been asked by the paddock scouts to enter it this coming weekend in the formula 400 at three sisters race track in Preston . I am very proud of the results for a first run and its been commented that Alex is very much at home and at ease with the machine he is now booked in with Simon Harris our resident A C U race instructor for some intense track time at Llandow circuit to further our progress on the machine.
Finally the best news of all and it was a shock. The machine entered the technical officers bay and was delayed for inspection by about 30 mins or so none of us knew why but at the presentation of Saturday nights results Alex was awarded for having the best presented and prepared bike of the meeting

You can see some great photos of the race and Josh’s Sixt bike on the Aberdare Park 2011 slideshow.

iTunes Festival is finally here !

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

From the 1st of July to the 31st of July at the itunes festival a collection of 62 different artists will gather to perform at one of the UK’s best venues, the roundhouse in London.

itunes festival logo 2011However, this is no ordinary festival because instead of one genre of music it has everything from Coldplay to Linkin Park.

The ticket system is also very different from a normal festival. Instead of the usual first come first served method of acquiring tickets, all the tickets for the festival are free, however there is a slight catch…

You have to sign up to say you would like a ticket for the festival but you are not guaranteed a ticket because your name is put into a draw. Not only do you not know if you will get a ticket, but you also will not know who you might be getting tickets to see. This is because this is also done by drawing names out.

So you could end up having to see someone you may not like, on the other hand this is a good method of giving everyone the chance to experience a live festival. People who may not usually be able to afford to go to a festival or just not be able to book tickets in time before them selling out. With this new system everyone has the same chance of getting a ticket to the festival however you will have to settle with what ticket you are given if you are lucky enough to get one.
