Motorbike Tour 15 The Cantabrian Mountains in Northern Spain
Motorbike Tour 15 The Cantabrian Mountains and the Pilgrimage Towns of Spain's Atlantic Coast
Tour 15 of Toby Ballentine's excellent book "Motorcycle Journeys through Western Europe" takes the reader and prospective motorcycle traveller on the coastal roads of Northern Spain then winds inland through the provinces of Navarra, Cantabria, Asturias, and Galicia. A combination of rugged coastal beauty and the mountains of Picos de Europa converge as you wander back in time to the medieval pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela. This is a part of Europe not overrun with foreign tourists and a place where motorcyclists can run free on roads truly less travelled on.
