Best motorcycle road routes: the longest one
The N-340 is the longest road in Spain. It has its kilometer 0 at the junction with the old N-IV -now A-4-, in Puerto Real, Cadiz and reaches the Catalan tourist spot of Plaça Espanya, in Barcelona. It completes a total of 1,200 kilometers, crossing 10 provinces, four autonomous communities and almost a hundred and a half villages.
It is a multi-day route in which the route must be checked with great care and dedication. In addition, you should plan the places where you will stop to rest and book hostels or hotels to spend the night. A drive along the N-340 will take you through Almeria, Alcoy, Valencia and the spectacular suspension bridge over the Ebro River, in the town of Amposta (Catalonia).
A route definitely for veteran bikers with previous experience in long rides.
Best off-road motorcycle routes: the Trans-Pyrenees off-road
As stated in the title: it’s an off-road route! It is one of the most popular among trail bike enthusiasts in Spain as it runs through the Pyrenees on challenging trails with spectacular panoramic views.
It starts in Irun, Basque Country, and may end at a point between Andorra and Catalonia. It takes between four and five days to cover it in its entirety and it is advisable to avoid winter because of the complicated snowy roads. However, keep an eye on the occupancy of hotels along the route during the summer, it is a good indicator of how many people will be walking in the bush (which means you will have to walk more carefully).
Highly recommended for groups of bikers with previous off-road experience.
