Isn’t Spain too far away for a bik­ing hol­i­day?

An­swered by Si­mon Weir, Ride Mag­a­zine Travel Ex­pert An­dalu­cia may be a long way from the UK but it is easy to ride there. You don’t have to ride to Spain: you could take a ferry to San­tander. Eas­ier still is ship­ping your bike di­rect to Malaga and then get­ting a bud­get air­line flight out. Or you can just take a cheap flight and then hire a bike. Like many, I was a bit scep­ti­cal about fly-ride trips, too. That scep­ti­cism lasted pre­cisely un­til I had the key for a tidy BMW R1200GS Ad­ven­ture in my hand, cour­tesy of www. bmw­mo­to­hire.com. Spain is good value, bud­get around £70-£100 a day, plus flights and bike hire. You need to head to south­ern Spain. Fab­u­lous weather, spec­tac­u­lar scenery, im­mac­u­late road sur­faces and bril­liant cor­ners… the only thing they don’t have is traf­fic. Make sure you ride the A397 from Mar­bella to Ronda, the A366 from Coin to Ronda, the A2300 around Lake Za­hara. It’s a fairly short road – barely 10 miles long – but has more cor­ners than all of Hol­land and one of the best roads I’ve ever rid­den. You’ll love it!

For bends, lakes and per­fect weather, head to south­ern Spain
