Got a lift to the start point .It's by the big Decathalon store.so had to pop in look at shiney bits.
You would of been in 7th heaven Nick long fast down hills on beautiful smooth tarmac and you can see round most of the corners if anything is coming.Mind you once you are off the main tourist routes/main roads you don't see hardley any cars at all doubt if I saw more than half a dozen when I was up in the mountains.I expect I saw more bikes than cars!
Going to try the Mogan across to Soria today 5,000 feet of up over about 10 miles or so but there is a cafe halfway!!!

It's abit up and down to Porto Mogan the a gentleish climb to Mogan the the next 5 miles is about 8 12%.It was about 17per cent down into Soria where I lunched rather well the 5 miles or so of 14% hairpins then 2% into the wind to the coast and back along the coast.
