... hills to find a nice ride a biker told me about - roadworks stopped play! Yep whole road was dug up. However when surrounded by mountain roads it does not take long to fine some twisties although riding bitumen on full knobblies is not much fun! Went to the end of the road by my camp site and found a great photo opportunity made it my profile pic. Back at site a quick swim I. The site pool was I order before a stroll I to ...

A tremendous day.

Onward bus to Oviedo, via Arenas de Cabrales and Cangas de Onis, to Oviedo - 2.5hrs.
