Day 2: Granada - Antequera

Todays ride takes us up to the top of the Sierra Nevada. Having fun on twisty roads all the way up we’ll have an amazing view over the valley of Granada! Perfect picture landscape.

Further on we’ll ride through the olive haines where Marko awaits us with the famous Edelweiss picnic.

The afternoon we will continue our ride through the olive haines till we reach the water reservoir of Iznájar.

Good opportunity for a last coffee stop before we reach Antequeras, our final destination for today.

Some of the group went up to the Sierra Nevada while the rest was exploring the city of Granada.
Graham was blown away by the landscape.
Selfie with the tour guide!
Kenneth is doing a good job for someone who drives on the wrong side of the road normally...
Leaving Granada for the picnic, hope Marko is ready, a hungry group is on its way.
Edgardo enjoying the ride through Andalusia
Once out of the city the roads are almost empty...
The village Moclín, famous for its old ramparts...
Maybe a future tour guide?

What an amazing sunset we had.

Day 4: Arcos de la frontera - Ronda

Today we will leave Arcos into a mor hilly area, on the „ruta de toro“ (road of the bulls) we will see a lot of haciendas where the fiery Andalusian fighting bulls are bred.

After our first coffee stop we will ride south to visit the last remaining colony in Europe „Gibraltar“.

The as it is called is definitely worth a visit, we will have an amazing view over mediterranean sea and if the weather is good we can see already Morocco.

On our way back to Ronda we will have another 70km of perfect mountain roads to ride on.

These roads are really great fun.

So see you in Ronda.

If the tourguide breaks a side stand he will fix it again. Cable ties are the tourguides best friend.
