Santander Motorway to Hotel
Not much to say about this route. Not one of the most exciting motorcycle touring routes in north-west Spain. It is an efficient and practical way to get to Navia, even if it is a little boring.
Santander to Hotel – The Long Way
240 miles along unlit twisting roads can be a challenging, especially if you are late getting off the ferry. Riano is a good night stop choice with great views to take in over breakfast.
Loop South – 200 Miles
This route mixes wide sweepers with tighter, good quality, roads through valleys and along hilltops. There are a few hairpins to negotiate, but not the constant barrage you find in the Alps.
South East Loop – Entrago – 185 Miles
The N-634 is an invigorating road that warms you up for the AS-14 & AS-15 you ride later in the day. Flowing bends with lots of wiggly sections to keep you focused. There is a planned in fuel stop at 100 miles
Loop West – 120 Miles
The Loop West at 120 Miles is the shortest route and uses part of the LU-P5501 which you may prefer to ride on an adventure bike, rather than a sports bike.
That said, the Fireblade made it without difficulty. It was just hard on the wrists in places.
