The TransAndalus: a 2000 km mountain bike circuit in Andalucía, Spain

The official TransAndalus website, www.transandalus.org, is now accessible in English as well as Spanish. This magnificent trail, developed and maintained by volunteers, traverses Andalucía on a route similar to the ACA's Great Divide Route. The comprehensive website includes all the information needed to cycle the route: maps, GPS tracks, detailed route guides, photos, FAQ's, listings of accommodations, and a forum.

From the website:
"The TransAndalus is a 2000 km long mountain bike route which makes a complete circuit through the autonomous region of Andalucía and runs the length of its eight provinces. The climate in Andalucía is ideal for bicycle touring and invites you to travel through its streets and country trails and discover places, scenery and people that are often very different from those found on the traditional tourist circuit.

To give you an idea of the beauty of the route, one need only list some of the precious natural scenery through which it passes: Cabo de Gata, Karst de Yesos en Sorbas, Sierra de Baza, Cazorla, Despeñaperros, Andújar, Cardeña and Montoro, Sierra Norte, Aracena and Picos de Aroche, Doñana, El Estrecho, Los Alcornocales, Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama, Sierra Nevada. Not to mention the outstandingly precious environments of el Valle de Los Pedroches, la Sierra de los Filabres and la Sierra de Gádor.

The TransAndalus is a project made possible by the cyclists of Andalucía, who by means of volunteers and communicating together over the internet have collaborated together, contributing information about the sections in their respective provinces. We hope that you enjoy your cycle tour in Andalucía."

That looks awesome! If anyone makes it out here to Spain sometime, and is visiting Barcelona, give me a shout and I'll be more than happy to be your local guide for the day.
