UPA1901 ANDALUSIA UNPAVED!
It's a beautiful spring day in southern Spain. Andalusia is giving her best with brilliant colors, incredible weather and perfect on and off roads!
Today we are heading to Antequera through some unpaved mountain roads and incredible scenery. 170km round trip.
In the morning we reached a little gravel parking lot to practice some Enduro exercise to get used to the new bikes and the roads condition we will have. It's great fun and everyone has the chance to discuss whether ABS and traction control are better off or on. (it's better to have them on =)
Today we ride 220km through some incredible on and off roads. As soon as we cross the El Chorro and we take a short look to the Camino del Rey, a path through the gorges with bridges and suspended walkways, the best off road section begins. Bigger water crossings, an old castle and great fun are the keywords of our afternoon
Today the longest section of our tour is to be ridden. Almost 300km are awaiting us towards the east and so towards Granada, even though we will not reach it. A lot of nice paved and unpaved roads, incredible scenery and a tasty typical spanish lunch.
Today we have our last riding day. The weather has been good all week long, but today it doesn't look the best. Luckily our guide Michael somehow can control it and so we always skip the rain =) .
Just bit more than 200km with a beutiful ride on the dirt roads around El Burgo, a visit to Ronda, of the most famous cities in Andalusia, and again through la sierra de las Nieves where we finally encounter other dirt road lovers on their 4x4.
A great last riding day with a lot of fun and just 30 minutes of rain.
THIS TOUR, THE FIRST OF ITS KIND, HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE !!! LET'S GO BACK AND DO IT AGAIN!
Thanks to our tour guides Michael and Malcolm and to our participants: Joe, Theresia, Nick, Neil, John, Michael and Tristram
