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.

Some new friends arrived from the UK and we had an amazing day and a half travelling and touring.
Below is what they said after their trip.....
Peter, UK - Many thanks for fantastic company and a fantastic day! � Absolutely amazing experience! Real shame we didn't have more time to spend with you and discover more roads together! Absolutely loved it..!
And Jay, UK - Fantastic Roads. We all enjoyed ourselves and it really was a good pleasure to meet you. I really wish I could stay longer. I’d love to do some more riding and go to the two restaurants you took us to, it was fantastic. I feel like the day we have had with you – the day before and the day we’ve had with you today - has probably been the best part of the holiday because you took us to some really good places and we wouldn’t have gone there without you. So I just want to say thank you for that. Hopefully I’ll see you in the near future. Cheers, Alan ! Thank you very much.
I'm sure they will be back soon !!
I was out this weekend with a few friends and we stopped off at this beach bar, called a Chiringuito locally, and filmed just a quick snapshot.
These gems can easily be added to any of your holiday tours, and in fact there is a small group already planning to be here on Saturday !!
Can't wait. Should be fun - then we have a great ride planned for the Sunday up into the mountains behind the beach.
Apologies that I have not posted a new Blog for a while but I have been tied up sorting out some personal issues. However, things are now moving forward, so I have extra time now to devote to filming and producing more videos for this Blog Page.
I was again out searching for new routes in South Spain and discovered some new roads amongst the hills and valleys. It's great just now since we have a had quite a lot of rain this year so the south is really much greener than normal !!
I hope you like the video.
I will post more regularly from now on and soon I will be posting videos for other parts of Spain for you.
This is a video blog showing pictures of amazing destinations and locations in Spain that are not on the main roads and are off the beaten track. This means that they are not busy and are easy to visit as part of your motorcycle holiday.
A few of the pictures were taken with older phone cameras - so sorry for the poorer qaulity sometimes.
Need to go with an updated camera soon and get some new photos !!

This is a shorter, summary video of the earlier one posted this week which was a 10 minute part of the 4 hour ride.
This shows the objective to find the Alacazaba frotress in Antequera, built by the Moors in the 14th century to try and stop the Christians from reconquering Spain.
The ride up through the hills and gorges and dropping down into Antequera was great. There has been so much rain that all of the south of Spain is really green right now instead of the usual dry, brown !!
Hope you enjoy the video, and let me know via the comments if you like this !!
