Day 6 Arroyo Frio "Rest Day" 240 km
Of course this group did not really rest today. We went for a loop around Arroyo Frio. Challenging goat trails and nice sweepers, excellent lunch. On top we had a closer look at one of the castles. Not much rest, but lots of experiences.
Day 7 Arroyo Frio - Montorro 320 km
A long day for everybody, but we enjoyed it. The ride on a lonesome backcountry road through a national park and the at the end we had a really twisty road. The dinner in our hotel, an old oliveoil mill, was outstanding.
Day 8 Montorro - Malaga 330 km
Unfortunately our last riding day, but some nice roads back to Malaga. The Highlight was the last part, incredibly twisty. All riders made it safe back to the hotel. Well done laydies and gentleman! See you on an other Edelweiss trip.
