Spanish Roads: Madrid and Mountains


This is area of our second full days riding. We left the Madrid – Burgos motorway after 45km or so and rode through the National Park areas around the pass at La Hiruela.


We were on two great bikes, I spent the morning building loads of confidence on the 2013 GS and Toby was on his R1200 RT.


The road varied from wooded overgrown tracks to sweeping asphalt A road curves.


We swopped bikes in the afternoon and I got to ride out a couple of rainstorms behind the massive screen of the RT.

The rain in Spain…..
