Christmas in Andalusia, Day 6

The tour starts here…up early for breakfast and head over to Hispania tours HQ for the rest of the guys to pick up their bikes, I lost my screen and top box rack in their lock up, really nice to have the bike stripped down to its fighting weight again…

The tour group was split into two smaller groups with Dominic leading our group with me and three other riders..I think there may have been some doubt about the Thunderbird keeping up in the twisties as I was given the sweeper position at the rear..more than happy with that though as very often I lead a ride so it makes a change, oh, and no problems keeping up either 🙂

After a couple of hours of ‘warm up’ twisties it was time for a coffee stop where we met up briefly with the rest of the group…we’ll call them the B team…:)

Moving on we headed for Ronda (help me !) for lunch, some great roads…

Dominic’s leg cramp stop !

The sort of roads you don’t just stumble upon, you have to know your stuff, fantastic scenery too, when you can take your eyes of the road long enough to look at it..I think this part of the trip is going to end up very picture heavy..

Ronda 3

After a great lunch we were soon back on the bikes in search of more twisties…of course they knew exactly where to find them..stunning views once again..

As I said this bit is going to be picture heavy, I can tell you we went around some bends but really you have to see it to believe it…it was a tad windy though…a quick fuel stop and then on to our hotel for the evening and a beer or two.
