Bilbao - Riaño (Picos de Europa)

As first route I'm gonna post in this forum, i have chosen the last month best route I did woth Gosia (a polish girlfriend) and some other riders and friends from QuedadasBilbo forum, from Bilbao to Riaño in PIcos de Europa (Northern Spain).


Ver Ruta de Un Día: BIlbao - Riaño en un mapa más grande

It was 4 of March and we were expecting sun but, anyway, what the hell, it was march so no more than 5 degrees at 9:00 time to meet in one petrol station on the surroundings of Bilbao. A freezing day was begining, but a warm trip to a very beautiful place was going to be done that great day.


From there about 9 motorbikes (2 of which, were going to abandon us before climb to Riaño for different personal reasons).

So, in this sunny day, we took all the old coast road to arrive to cabezon de la sal, were we turned to the interior roads heading the mountains, Picos de Europa was in front of us, tall, white, majestically.

As far as we begun climbing the hill we realised that we have to be specially careful that day, we didn't want to have unexpected surprises that could ruin the riding day.

And after been climbing a while, the first motorbike stopped (What's going on? -I thought something had to be wrong with someone as we didn't arrive to Riaño-).


What a beautiful surprise to stop there... see by your eyes:

So, we decided to make a group photo, in this moment still 7 motos were there:

Among them, mine:

"Come on, hurry up, we have been so long taking pictures, before, taking coffe and laughing, and is late, we have to get RIaño to continue to Cangas de Onis to take Lunch" - Our ears listened. So...



And, finally, after taking lunch in Cangas de Onis, the rest of the group went back to Bilbao over Cabrales road, but Gosia and me, we have anothers plan for that long Carnival weekend. We turn to Xixon visiting my motard friend Eltron, and to have fun with other Couchsurfing friends from there in the Antroxu party!!!! ;)
