Northern Spain next Spring, recommendations please

Some friends and I are planning a week in Northern Spain next spring possibly around the Picos national park.

We will be renting a house and having day trips out taking both scenic roads and some trails for those of us taking trail bikes.

I am looking for suggestions of a nice town or village for a base, interesting places and events to visit and good local paper maps showing small roads and trails.

Any advice gratefully received.

Roses is a neat beach town with good beaches, pretty women, cheap wine, great food, lots of history. It makes a good base for some fine riding. The ride up across the French border to Port Vendres is really great. Don't miss the ride to Cadaques. Riding Northern Spain should also include a foray into Andorra by riding along the France/Spain border in the Pyrenees. Hit Barcelona, too, if you have the time. Michelin 1:400,000 is good map. Check online at www.atlasbycollins for s good set of maps to get you going. My Garmin with Europe maops worked great allo over France adn Spain, but I carried the Michelin maps, too. www.viamichelin is a good planning too.
