Vacation on the Iberian peninsula
27. July 2016

Motorcycling Mecca Spain?

Our tour guide Angela has been on numerous motorcycle tours in Spain. Her early scepticism about riding in Spain had turned into elation. In the following article she tells us why she now loves to travel with Edelweiss to the Iberian peninsula.

Thinking back of the time before I started working for Edelweiss Bike Travel, I would have never dreamed of spending my holidays on the Iberic Peninsula. My mind was full of places I thought I would have to share with crowds of tourists rushing for the beaches on the Spanish coast, hungry for the sun and the ocean.

I am a very enthusiastic motorcyclist, and so I couldn’t believe that this was it. Where would I find the flamenco dancing, the delicious food, the spirited and hospitable Spaniards, those famous historical buildings and fantastic roads other motorcyclist were telling me about?

Some seven years later and after quite a number of tours I guided for Edelweiss Bike Travel, I got to know almost each corner of Spain, and I also learned a lot about the country.
