I can’t help thinking of Spain as the little black dress of motorcycle tours; its old faithful, you know what you’re getting, no matter what you do it’s a safe bet for a good time and you can’t really go wrong with it. The country is so accessible and diverse that it doesn’t matter if it’s your first time or the 100th time visiting you will fall in love over and over again. Long, sultry summers ensure you’re guaranteed nice weather, even in the shoulder seasons – making it the perfect destination for some winter sun. Traffic free roads mean you can cruise along at your own pace for the most part uninterrupted. Mountain ranges that are among some of the most beautiful on the continent guarantee jaw dropping scenery every day. Medieval, cobbled old towns and cities perched on hilltops wrap you up and put you under their romantic spell. Mouthwatering cuisine at prices so low, you’ll think you’re robbing people blind ensures you experience an important part of Spanish culture, even on a small budget. Twisty, hairpin riddled roads that take you up and over mountain passes, alongside lush vineyards, past serene lakes and over ancient cobbles in walled towns make for day after day of thrilling seat time on the bike. This all adds up to make Spain unrivalled on the leaderboard of the best countries to ride in, you can’t help but get swept up in the passion and beauty of this country – life is a fiesta and you’re all invited.
