Sweet. I spent a night in Cazorla back in '00 while touring Andalucia. Went over Puerto de Tiscar the next day.

Spent a week in Cazorla back in 2009 or so, teaching in an immersive English program. Beautiful town and park, and that is an awesome ride story!

indyfabz, jefnvk, thanks. yes Cazrola is beautiful, we did not went there, since it was Easter holidays, when we arrived at the road to Arroyo Frio / Cazorla coming off road from Campos Hernan Perea we saw that a lots of tourist stuff was going on there,
we did not feel like to see even more people and cars, so we stopped at Arroyo Frio the night and went on beside the "embalse" the next day.

djb, thanks! plaster is gone since Friday, arm feels already much better, i can move it passive the said not active. another 8 days and then rehabilitation.

Yeah. Semana Santa can get crazy. I was in Ronda most of that week of '00. I had spent a day there back in '98 during a non-riding trip to Spain. The place was relatively quiet then, but when I rode into town from El Puerto del Viento in '00 it was so crowded that I didn't recognize where I was until I saw the bull ring. The campground just to the south of town was packed to the gills. The owner told me he would never turn anyone away who had ridden over Viento and advised me to hang out there until the holiday passed. When I was crossing the pass a racing team overtook me. I joking asked one member if he would help me with my equipaje. He chuckled, smiled and politely declined. Then they dropped me.

Damn it, I had written off Spain for a while (been there FAR too much lately, need to try somewhere else). You guys aren't making that decision easy!

I was only ever in Spain for a few days part way through a trip doing a loop from Toulouse, down towards the start of the Pyrenees at the Med. side, then along all of the Pyrenees to the Atlantic, up to Bordeaux and back to Toulouse. Spent just a few days in the Basque area.

many many years ago, 93 I believe.
str, your photos are enticing to me as well. Ah, so many trip ideas..so many family and other obligations that get in the way....

beautiful picture, lots of information on that wall! Pyrenees are beautiful! French side even more, many narrow roads and its green and less hot, compared to the spanish side. maybe we crossed roads there, did the french pyrenees several times in the beginning of the 90th, without weight on the road bike. you sure like this:
