Ok boys and girls,
Here's a beautiful 50 mile stretch that runs Westward from
Berga on the C16 to the C14. Forgive me for this review
being a bit long winded and sketchy as I'm working from memory.
A bit of a strange one this as the road changes names three
times but I don't know why. It starts as the Bv4241,
changes to the Lv4241and then ends as the L401.
This road has everything from tight and open hairpins to
reasonable straights. It's fairly well surfaced but not perfect.
It also has several hazards so treat it as a scenic route rather
than a racers route. By hazards, I mean fresh air drops
with parapet walls to help launch you should you enter a bend
too hot! Beware of mountain goats and their produce!!
We had a real blast riding this and found ourselves stopping
every few minutes to take in the gorgeous scenery. Every
bend we went around seemed to result in an 'Oh my god, what
a view' moment. We stopped for the night on this road in a
Biker Friendly (aren't they all) b+b/hotel - see the red building
in the pics. The b+b was 38 miles in and is right on the
junction for Cambrils. This doesn't show on my Garmin
Quest but believe me it is there. The people are real
nice but speak little English, but if I can get by with my
little Spanish then so can you. Briefly, 3 blokes, 1 room,
a dip in the pool, Steak supper, 3 lagers each, OJ, Coffee,
and crazy bread stuff for breakfast,
all for ‚£20 each. I'm not kidding, the b+b was just 10 euros
each! There is also a campsite a few yards away.
In hindsight we wished we had stayed a few more night for
prices. All the locals seem to dine there in the evening
which added a traditional Spanish touch. I will definitely
return one day, and if you're touring the area and want
somewhere good, cheap and in great surroundings, head
for this place, you won't be disapointed. Like I said, a
bit long winded but I thought it's best to overdo the details than not.
Now enjoy the Photo's. As usual, many taken from a moving
bike so not brilliant.
