Almunecar ascent towards the Sierra de Tejeda

Almunecar, Andalusia, Spain


A favourite local road ride, you leave the seaside town ot Almunecar on the A-4050 and head into the hills behind the town, climbing steadily through two little villages and on through lovely countryside on a smooth, quiet road. The first 5-10 minutes are a good warmup before the road settles in to more or less continual climbing. Steady gradients, nothing too crazy, just a great workout. Unfortunately on the trainer you won't be able to fill your bidon at the top in the little spring-fed fountain, or stop at El Capricho for a cafe solo on the way down...
