Cycling through Spain

I'm trying to plan a route from the north coast to the south coast of Spain, Santander to Denia. If anyone has previous experience of cycling in Spain, possible routes, suggested maps or anything else relevant to this trip it would be much appreciated.

I did some cycling in Spain about a year ago. Wonderful place to see, especially the mountains in Southern Spain. Check out this link for more info on cycling in Spain:

Hi,

If you like mountains don't miss the Picos de Europa. In Andalusia it's possible to climb the Pico de Veleta. The highest road in Europe.

If you head to Madrid don't miss Toledo (a nice city)

In Spain helmets are required, Trailors are permitted and cycling on motorways something necessary.

the most important thing: do not cycle the RED national roads! too much traffic.

use the YELLOW and WHITE roads...

also there was a thread here about Spain short ago.
