11th April 2013

This short route is a lovely ride through orchards of oranges and lemons. In one place I could see orchards, a wind farm and snow capped peaks all at once.

The day started with a ride along some single-track, with a drop to the right of anything between 2 and 50m. Have a look at the video:

I arrived at Niguelas around 3.00. It’s a small but lovely village at the foot of Caballo, the most westerly peak of the Sierra Nevada. I stayed at a Casa Rural (or B&B) called La Huerta del Cura, where I was a given a great breakfast made entirely from the produce of their own garden – this included the eggs, garlic, honey & jams, orange cake and orange juice. Follow the link if you want to stay but beware Google maps – it puts the B&B in the wrong town – it is definitely in Ninguelas.

Bike Shop

There is a bike shop in Durcal, the next village to the north. They are called Biciaventura and are very helpful. You can find them on the main street, but they are set back a bit, so watch out for the bank next door.

This is my blog of my trip around Spain, off road, on my mountain bike. The story is told in full in my book "Three Wheels on my Bicycle", available on Amazon in Kindle or hardback.
