We met at Magdalena square with our bikes and once we were together we went to the Bruil park. There we started recapitulating the trees that we had learnt the previous Tuesday with José Luis Garde. At the beginning we guessed only three or four. So to recognize more trees we did some activities, we were divided into four teams and we had to do some challenges: recognizing some trees, locating some trees in the map, making photos…

The first was to found the trees with their names in signs. The second was to locate these trees in a map of the park. And the third was to locate some trees marked in a map and identify them with a tree guide. We saw these trees: Encina, arbol del amor, ciruelo rojo, olivo, cipres, acacia tres espinas, cedro, platano de sombra, ailanto…

When we ended this we went through the bank of the river Huerva, from the Bruil park to its mouth in the river Ebro. Once in the Ebro we followed it river up. First in the right margin and then, after crossing the iron bridge, in the left margin, so we crossed the Puente de Hierro and from there to Helios and then we continued riding along the Ebro river near his water.

The path was okey until the entrance of the Expo, it was full of water, flooded.The major part of us went backwards to use the stairs, but some “brave” people decided to go through the water. They finished soaked and tired.

We did a stop to rest a bit and to let the soaked ones to warm up a bit. Then we began the expositions about matter and energy, the Ebro river, biodiversity, ecosystems…

After that we began another time to ride the bikes through the Expo, going out of the city and going through a rural enviroment.

We stopped a little bit before the “Galacho de Juslibol”, in a picnic area. We had the chance of eating at bit more to recover energies. There were some expositions left, so the group finished them. They talked us about acid rain, global warming… And then, we started the travel back home.

We returned  again by the expo but this time by other route that go near “the river canals´´ (because is a part of the river that was diverted for leisure time like canoe trip , swimming ,…) and we saw some ducks with little ducks and we also saw two swans. Then each one returned to their homes.
When arriving home we looked the speedometer. It counted 28 km, so I entered home to rest. It was a great day!
