Sierra De Segura Revisited!

Recommended Posts

This time without getting lost, and without a Beemer! Cos I took this one!

Same old thing during the Summer months.....out by 10am and back by 2pm. Cos 2-5 is mucho calor bebe!

First, it was across to Puedla de Don Fadrique and then up the infamous Santiago road with 25 miles of narrow twisties.

Then a stop for coffee in Santiago.....

Great views all around too!

Then back on the road....it's always deserted!

Then mile after mile through the mountain roads!

You might think this would be a good place to go offroad....but I wouldn't risk it!

Why? Am I worried about getting the bike dirty? Of course I am! Who isn't? :unsure:

Too hot for offroading? Bloody right!

But there's another reason! Cos everytime I stopped, took my helmet off and earplugs out....the sound of thousands of things hissing was deafening. So bad that I could barely hear anything on my mobile! It was absolutely thunderous! Now, it may not be snakes.....but I'm not taking any bloody risks!

So I stuck to the road! Much safer....and cleaner! :lol:

In total, about 120 miles today....making 220 miles for the XT this weekend. And it's had a real caning, but it runs much better for it.

I'm so busy at the moment that I've just got to grab a few hours here and there....but in Spain there's so much space to explore, and the roads are so quiet, that any run is enjoyable!

And the roads are dry too! Which is nice! :lol:
