Help me cut 25 to 30 % off my route in Spain
I need help cutting my routing down by about 25-30% to fit within my time frame.
Starting place and ending place is set, no flexibility.
I would like to hit all the regions in the rough routing map in the links below. It appears that the cuts will likely come from the pyrenees, but as I've never been to Spain, Portugal or Southern France I haven't the best idea on what to leave out.

You will ride a very good trip.
The first track(Madrid to France across spain pirinees) is good but I think you must modified the track from Olot (point O) to France, because this roads are no interestings for moto.
from Olot to Vic and Blanes the road are in works. The best way is:
Olot, Besalu, Figueres Portbou.
I live in Montserrat, near Barcelona and ride weekends in the Ripoll, Puigcerda, la Seu zone.If you need a free guide, tell me.
The is a website of France goberment called:
It is a classic across pirynees frances from coast to coast (cantabric sea - mediterranean sea)

I think after Olot, along the coast is nice on the bay of Roses, especially getting over to Cadaquez.
To cut time, you have some spots, like in your second map, where you do two approaches up the same range where the landscape is going to be fairly similar anyway, might be best to cut that down to 1.
It is very hard to give more advice, as everyone enjoys different things when riding, but it does look like you are rehashing over a lot of the same areas in the national parks.

looks like a great ride, shame you have to cut down :)
I can vouch for the pyrenees having great riding roads, never got more to the south though
