The tour operator has tried to design the route along small, quiet, and picturesque roads with little car traffic and/or bike paths that enhance the sightseeing of the local areas. For the most part, road surfaces will be of good quality but there are a few short sections of patched road where you need to ride with increased care. Road bikes, as well as touring bikes and hybrids, are suitable for the tour.
After this tour, Spain may remain in your heart forever and you may want to return to this country that has so much to offer to its visitors again and again.
