A partly recently surfaced road snaking through beautiful countryside over hills and through valleys. Nice and wide with fast sweeping bends with very little traffic. This road encourages fast riding and is a must for anyone visiting the area. 4 of us hit this road in May 2008 after coming through the narrow mountainous roads in northern Portugal and if we werent on tight schedule rest assured wed have gone back and done it all again ENJOY!!!!!!!!
Ruta que parte de San Vicente de la Barquera y se interna en la montaña
rodeando todo el Parque Nacional de los Picos de Europa.
en su mayoría discurre por carreteras sin mucho tráfico.
Forst section is realy nice with beautiful scenery. Desfiladeros are a must with last section with not so good pavement, but corners are amazing. Road not wide and must take care with local traffic that might became distracted with scenery. Kiss your footpegs goodbye in Riaño and after relax in a cidreria in Cangas...
Starting from San Vicente take the N634 before turning off onto the N621 to Unquera. Starts off a nice low level road with sweping bends & scenery before it starts to climb into the Picos de europa Mountains. A fantastci run along a mountain gorge with tight bend after tight bend before the road calms down a bit as you approach Potes. As you leve Potes the road gets a little narrower and realy starts to get intersting as you start to climb up to the summit at Puerto de San Glorio at 1609m - there is view after view of fantastic mountain scenery and more bends than you can shake a stick at. As you begin to drop down towards Riano the road surface changes for the better and the road is slightly wider, rewarding you with faster sweeping bends and a few good straights until you arrive at Riano which is surrounded by lakes... there is a service station at the entrance to the village with the best view I've ever had whilst fulelling and a great little Cantina just behind the service station to refuel the rider.
One of the best biking roads in Asturias, but better out of season. In summer theres a lot of traffic because its in the way to Covadonga and Los Lagos de Covadonga. You can see Naranjo de Bulnes from a viewpoint in Poo de Cabrales.
Good tarmac with all type of corners, to do it all in 3rd gear.
400 bends. Some in 2nd gear, scrapping, others 4th, scrapping, to No traffic
Estrada pitoresca cheia de retas e campos.
One of the best roads in Portugal, the N2. Running across the interior of Portugal, North to South, this is just a small part of what this scenery filled and corner riddled road has to offer.
Very nice road.. great scenery, lots a great corners.
The tarmac could be better.. but its not bad.
Route 103 in Northern Portugal runs from Braga in the West to Braganca in the East. About 200 kilometres of absolutely stunning mountain road. Traffic is generally light and the road surface, by and large, is excellent. Chaves, about half way, makes a nice stop off point and the opportunity to refuel self and bike. The western section is largely fast, open sweepers, the eastern has a lot more tight and twisty stuff. Ride it, you'll love it!
A twisting road with a rapid succession of corners,
physically very demanding if youre a sports rider.
You will start by placing the bike on the right trajectory for the first and second corners, on the third you will be a little off the line, by the fourth you wont care about trajectory or apexes and just cut the corner. Thats because some stretches have no straights between corners so its hard to keep a good line.
The tarmac is reasonable with the occasional small stones on the middle of the road. The camber is accentuated in some corners, but in the right way.
The road is not very wide and is mostly surrounded by trees with some places where you can stop for a view of the landscape high on the Serra do Caldeirão. Please keep a sensible speed while crossing the villages on the route.
A great mountain road with wide corners and a good surface. The railings are even protected for bikers along the route.
The scenario is very good, circled by mountains that surround this region.
Plenty of corners on a pleasant road, although not as good as the connecting N112, its quite entertaining.
Actually, this is a mixed route. Get yourself to Salvaterra do Extremo. At the entrance of the village there is a cross where you should see a sign pointing to Segura. This road is very rural, mostly used by farmers and their animals, but was recently upgraded to a low quality tarmac. It is still a farmers road but a pleasure to drive. In summer keep in mind suncare, there is no shadows...At Segura, cross the river and you are in Spain. This section is very quick, with decent corners and speed sections.
A good speed up route. However, there is some villages worth visiting like Monsanto, Penha Garcia and Idanha a Velha. Keep in mind the traffic lights, there are some.....
A very interesting route with parts with very nice corners and some sections of speed up straights. Despite the crossing villages roads with traffic lights, is a very balanced route, interenting and enjoyable.
You will be getting out of it with a smile on your face
One of the nicest routes around with plenty of very sharp corners,
this route is better taken from the crossing with IC3 since
it only gets interesting from there.
A new road to Sertã means this is now a very abandoned road, which is good because there is very light traffic, but bad because the surface is dirtier.
The best Road for motorcycle in Portugal!
This road is popular with Portugal local bikers and has some spectacular viewpoints. It passes through a ski resort area, a shock for Portugal, after rising from the town to a flattish mountain top at 2000 metres. There is an interesting diversion to the right, signposted Manteigas or Valley of the Glacier,which after a mile or so gets to the head of a perfectly formed Glacier Valley.Back on the main route there are some good bends and you can finnish in the village of Seia where you can find a number of good restaurants.
Excellent road, the tarmac it's great, and the corners fantastic. As for the scenery, by the river it's great, after that it's pleasant.
