Ride Guide to Europe (2014/15)
« on: Nov 03, 2014, 09:15 AM »
The Ride Guide to Europe is out now. 131 pages of routes - including low cost short breaks, the perfect French tour, epic mountain passes, planning packing and more. The routes are downloadable as sat nav files.
Light on Portugal, but 40 pages of the "Ultimate Guide to touring Spain". 
Good value IMHO at 5.99

On another forum, a poster on Saturday (1 Nov) wrote , "We are in Spain at the moment and camping, but with the car and many of the sites are shut as it's winter. Well it's 25 degrees, hasn't rained for the 4 weeks we have been here, but they call it winter. They've stopped selling ice cream and the locals are wearing jumpers. The Picos de Europa mountains are stunning, and the roads all seem to be in good condition and empty of traffic."

If you ever start taking life too seriously, remember you are a talking ape orbiting the galaxy at 446,400 MPH on a deteriorating organic spaceship.

That's Spain for you.

On my one biking tour of Portugal I found it not in the same league as Spain, I couldn't get back across the border into Spain fast enough.
The main negative is it's crowded and roads are BUSY. You get across that border into the extreme (empty) west of Spain and you are on a different planet.
