This is Day 5. Yet another great day for biking and this time going from one Sierra to another.
The start was slow since trying to stay on the regular roads and avoiding the highways is not easy. I'm Old School and don't follow a GPS, so I got lost for a while in the nearby towns and villages, and also the olive groves. BUT - you learn a lot at the same time and I have now seen more places that will be on my next Holiday List !!
So the roads head up into the Sierra and although the clouds closed in there, was no rain.
The routes are nice and views amazing, but because there are so many corners, twisties, hairpins and narrow roads - it is not a fast route do do a high mileage. It takes longer than you think when you stop regularly to take photos and videos.
But it is still worth it. Southern Spain, the country, people, food and wines are amazing
Ride Safe. Hope you like the video !!
This is Day 4 of the Tour and circles from the hotel right around one of the Sierras. Great route and views aver the lakes and the mountains, and although not actually much mileage, the road is pretty narrow and twisty - so not a fast route at all.
The hotel after the long twisty descent from the Sierra was great. I went out in the evening for dinner, just a short walk along the road from the hotel, and ate a fabulous dinner in one of the restaurants that specialise in local produce from the Sierra.
Ride Safely !!
Hello again Bikers,
This is the best day so far, with absolutely incredible routes up very steep mountains, with lots and lots of curves and hairpin bends.
Needless to say, the view from the top is incredible.
The route then continues on the high ground and finishes through arid, desert type of countryside and then into the endless olive groves before arriving at the hotel.
I am carefully scouting for good routes and safe parking for motorbikes and searching out excellent accommodation that is a short walking distance from the hotel to a selection of bars, tapas and other restaurants in the evenings.

This is the first full riding day that starts at the coast and winds its way through the hills and mountains. The views are spectacular and the roads are pretty empty and great quality. The route ends up back down on the coast for the next evening in a great hotel with a pool.

Custom Bike Tours has been out in Southern Spain to scout for new routes, new destinations and some great hotels.
This is the film from Day 1 - which starts off at the coast and heads into the hills and back to the coast. This could be a shorter day for riders just arriving and would be a familiarisation day. The hotels are all excellent with great parking, food and local towns and villages within walking distance at night.
