Looks good...
What about inland tracks, trails and gravel roads? Is there a week or two's worth of riding there, and is it legal to ride single tracks in that region?
Campsites and beer......there would need to be those too?

This "TRAIL" is NOT legal Track ...


There are many inland Tracks "legal", but NOT so pretty, only dirt-roads, mud and forest!


You can get many bars in every town to drink many liters of good beer of Galicia "Estrella Galicia"


ON-Road tracks have a lot to enjoy of this beautiful coast "Costa da Morte" and all Galicia Territory

Hi Lulo,

Fantasic post. Did you get to the Cementerio de los inglesos? I know that trail is legal, despite being on the beach and in a Reserva Natural. But what are the general regulations in Galicia?

Saludos

Simon

Hi Simon, "The Cementerio de los Ingleses" is a legal Track, but all zone is a "Reserva Natural" (Red Natura 2000)

Here in Galicia the regulation is not so severe...

... is better be wary OK!

Hi Lulo,

Thanks, that's good to know. We were there a couple of years ago and did the route by car. I recommend the camp sites at Muxía, all are really lovely!

For anyone not following what Lulo and I are talking about. We live in two of: Spain's seventeen 'autonomous regions' Galicia and Catalonia that are at opposite ends of the country and are about as different from one another as it is possible to be!

All of the regions have the power to make their own regulations for access to wild spaces, over and above the national laws. Those that use this ability vary considerably in the degree and type of restrictions that apply to motor vehicle access. It's very difficult to keep up to date with al of these rule as not only the rules themselves are frequently revised but also how stringently they are enforced varies from year to year - usually in response to the fire risk in hot and or dry years (2012 was a record breaker for fires).

There's a long-winded (verboso) explanation on my blog but I don't go into details of each region because of the difficulty of keeping up to date with all of them and I don't want to add to urban myth making.

To find specific regulations for a region you can use the info on the blog to use key words, e.g. 'Ley de Montes' (law pertaining to wild spaces) and search the official journal, 'boletín' of each region, however, to seek the rules from the source.

But as a general rule of thumb the more central the region to more repressive the regulations, with its epicentre in Madrid of course! But in general if you ride sensibly, in small groups, and on trails that are clearly used by four-wheelers and don't ignore restriction signs riders, especially foreign riders, are OK.

The thing about nature reserves, of which there are many categories, is that these have more restrictions but at the same time have to guarantee some access to the public. So in these you will see more prohibition signs but otherwise it is reassuring that where there are no prohibition signs you are OK. They also tend to be the most wild and lovely places to ride as well.

Regs

PS Lulo I've just read your Lighthouse trail post - do you recognise this one?

Eeeeyyy!!! Faro de Cabo Touriñán (Muxía)...

Thank you very much for your comments Simon , the all information that you give "The Spanish Biker" is very important to be considered for off-road routes in Spain


P.S.: If you need to stop suffering and waiting for death, drink san miguel beer

Je je je.

Thanks for your comments. In 2011 I rode from cap de Creus to Tourniñan, taking about three weeks to do it via just about everywhere!

The only place I 'missed' was the Montes de León, so one fine day - and I mean fine! - I'll have to come back to your part of the world
