    I would appreciate that wessie. We are arriving in Bilbao mid afternoon so should give the chambermaid chance to pressure wash it otherwise...

    On the Spanish side of the Pyrenees, Hotel Les Brases in Sort is a good base. Bike friendly, secure lock-up for bikes. Food in the hotel is OK and some nice restaurants in the town

    Great loop north via C13 over Col de Bonaigua to Viellha then south to La Pobla de Segur via N230 and N260 then north again back to Sort - about 120 miles.

There will be further overnights in between those places. If N.Spain & N.Portugal have poor weather then I can head east into France or even down to the Sierra Nevada as it is just me and one of my bikes (not decided which, yet, S1000XR or R1200RS).

    How green are you now
    Time to cut the grass in the garden, the colour is annoying me! The Sierra Nevada is fantastic, we did it in 2016 exploring the area around Antequra. We also did the Alhambra on a quiet day. We did the Ronda road but on a Hire F650GS with full luggage, so hardly a tarmac ripping machine.

    Have a great break Wessie you will love it and traveling on your own you will meet so many more people than if you travel as a pair or a group.

    I've stayed there too - great hotel as you say. Brilliant breakfast with fried eggs straight from the pan!

    And that restaurant you see on the lhs is the only Michelin starred one in the area.

    The C13 is magnificent!

    Wanted del oso in the picos but full so went to Fuente de instead and had a great time - the run up to the hotel is fab and a cable car to the top of the mountain is a good distraction

    I didn't know about the restaurant! I'll have to go back again now.

    I came in via the C13 to Sort from Foix, France. Lovely ride.
