If you love riding your motorbike in fantastic scenery then the Picos in Spain is definitely for you. The whole area is a natural park and a landscape that belongs to earlier times.
Every day a challenging motorcycling route in Spain where even the same roads can take on a different perspective at different times of the day. You will enjoy your motorcycle ride to Comillas on the northern coastline where you can check out the bizarre Gaudi architecture in the grounds of a wacky 1880s gothic castle. Just down the road is Santillana del Mar – one of the best-preserved medieval villages in the whole of Spain. And around the corner is Altamira, famous for the discovery in 1946 of cave paintings thousands of years old. Make sure you ride your motorcycle to go visit the caves – they really are extraordinary. Or ride your motorbike further along the coastal route to the marvellous Guggenheim museum at Bilbao. Yet another motorcycle ride out will take you up to Covadonga where the twin spired blood red cathedral dominates the skyline. Onwards to Cangas de Onis famous for its huge Roman arch and marvel at the noblemen’s palaces nearby. Or just ride your motorbike and stop off at the many Miradors (viewpoints) along the route. Another popular ride out is to the capital of the Principality of Asturias, Oviedo. But most importantly are the rideouts in the Picos themselves including Fuente De where a ride on the cablecar is a must. Just be sure to take a big memory card and spare batteries for your digital camera!
