Our club made the second annual Ride the Rock in May. It was a fun day despite a little rain and a killer wind. We parked on the Spanish side of the border and rode across. As we were getting ready to ride into Gibraltar, a plane was landing. This stops all incoming and outgoing traffic as you have to cross the runway to get in - pretty cool.

We rode around the Rock, through part of it and up. It is not a the biggest of places, so we did it a couple times. All in all an awesome trip.
