Day 1 - Arrival day
Everybody made it to our start hotel in Almeria in time.
A group of enthusiastic motorcycle riders:
Peter, Vilnis, Allan, Ken, Ben and Tom from the US, Erik from Canada and Christian from Germany.
Day 2 - Almeria - Aroyo Frio - 370 km
The first day was quite exciting. We had a breakdown in the morning and Peter did a great job as a tourguide and brought the group safe to the hotel, while I was getting a new bike in Malaga. We met late at night and the group was doing really well. The temperature was close to 0 degrees today, that means really cold!
Day 3 - Restday Aroyo Frio - 180 km
Because of the rain in the morning, only 4 restless riders decided to go with me on that little loop through the Cazorla National Park. We were lucky and the rain stopped. We had a great day on challenging backcountry roads.
Day 4 - Aroyo Frio - Marmolejo - 360 km
Unfortunately another rainy day, but the group did really well. In some sections we even had dry roads and then it was a lo of fun to ride the narrow and twisty roads.
Hopefully the weatherforecast is right and we see the sun tomorrow.
Day 5 - Marmolejo - Alcaucin - 350 km
Finally the sun came back and we had a wonderful riding day through olive plantations and over several mountain ranges. The group could not get enough , so we added another loop. What a great day!
Day 6 - Alcaucin - Calahora - 300 km
This day had the best riding you can imagine. All kinds of curves in great scenery. It was very intense, but the group really enjoyed it.
Day 7 - Calahora - Almeria - 310 km
Unfortunately our last riding day. But what a day! 6 spectacular passes and countless curves. That was riding at its best. All riders did a great job on these challenging roads.
Hope to see you all on the next one!
