Spain 2019
« on: 07 October, 2018, 08:46:03 PM »
We’re in the early planning stages of our 2019 tour.

We pick our furthest destination, then I plan our route accordingly.......never going the quickest or straightest way.

2016 was down through France, across Spain with the furthest destination being Lisbon (Portugal), back via Santander.

2017 was Santander, Gibraltar, Santander.

2018 was Santander, Granada, Santander.

These three trips have been outstanding.

Next year we thought about Cadiz for our furthest point, but I’m reading mixed reviews. Anyone been there who can give a fair review of the place?

I've not been to Cadiz but I can recommend Ronda, if you've not been there? It's sort of enroute/nearby.

I've also got a good recommendation for an awesome zigzag route from Santander to Gibraltar but via the east of Spain, if that's any good? (not an exact gpx route but the towns to aim for).

We stayed in the Parador overlooking the gorge, in Ronda, on our way down to Gibraltar.  :028:

Last year we went down the east coast, and back up inland to the east of Madrid, when we went to Granada.

Next year we intend to travel down the west of the country.  :028:

Just Galicia, Asturias and Cantabria are enough for a three weeks travel... And you will not see everything!

The fastest way is the called "ruta de la plata" but is quite boring for a motorbike.

I would recommend go down the border with Portugal. There are beautiful natural reserves with great roads.

There are so many outstanding places along the way from Santander to Cadiz that you can spend a month to arrive

You’re right, the roads are fantastic and the ones we use are empty.

The N502 and routes off it were great two years ago, so we may be paying it a visit again.  :028:

We try not to use motorways, and our daily mileage rarely exceeds 170 miles (250-260 kilometres), so we can stop often. We also factor in a number of days off the bikes.  :001:
