Itinerary description

Went in the summer from Plymouth-Santander on ten day trip. Campsites en-route.
mainly off road as much as possible. From Santander to solares is on road and the bottom loop into portugal. We did deviate from this main track as tracks are everywhere once in the mountains ( just look at the black lines on on your gps)

    100% asfalto no es enduro y por su puesto no es moderado

    Hi Mark. Glad you found this site. This particular track has been put together from two weeks of riding using roads to join up the off road tracks. It’s very enjoyable and can be used as something to follow and to add on other off road tracks if wanted. It is not difficult but sometimes remote which is why I classed it as moderate.

    TODA ESTA ZONA ESTA REPLETA DE MARAVILLOSAS RUTAS DE MONTAÑA POR PISTA Y NO POR CARRETERA,POR ESO ES MEJOR QUE TU RUTA NO LA CLASIFIQUES COMO ENDURO, PORQUE NO ES PARA MOTOS DE ENDURO,SE PUEDE HACER PERFECTAMENTE EN UN COCHE
