Last week, I was in the Picos.
Don't get too jealous, though - i was in the car. Nevertheless, some superb roads and scenery.
And while in Potes, I saw this Dominator.
We travelled on the Plymouth - Santander ferry .... it's a 20ish hour journey but comfortable, and judging by the...
Whilst outside of the main entrance to our hotel in the Picos the week before last I parked the bike on the main stand and proceeded to remove some luggage from the top box. Upon doing this the rear end lifted as you would expect but what I didn't expect was for the bike to continue forward and...
Hi guys and girls.
Slight change of plan, booked the ferry to Santander in October hoping for warmer weather than The Alps. Has anyone got a good recommendation for a hotel or B&B? We know one in the picos but any others would be greatfully received.
I am taking the Ferry Tuesday late afternoon (17:15) to Santander, spending 6 nights in the Picos mountains returning Bilboa to Portsmouth, renting a little house in Peruyes, never done the Picos before but looked at lots of route and roads, weather not looking too bad, cloud showers and sun.
Wifey and I are off to the Picos in a couple of weeks. Catch the ferry for Santander on the 21st.
We are looking at not travelling massive mileages, her idea not mine, and just relaxing and pottering about.
I would like to visit Ribadesella along the coast, passed through there years...
Wifey and I are off to The Picos in June, gentle touring and camping, no offroad heroics.
Thinking of getting a tank bag to keep some of the load off the rear rack, as she struggles with high jumps.
I used the Oxford throw over panniers on my old bikes for years and thought they were a good buy...
Hi there @ owners. I'm planning a trip to the Picos De Europas for mid June. Just a couple of days riding there from the Plymouth to Santander ferry. I'm going with my brother in law, he'll be on his Yamaha XTZ 660. The ferry and cabin are all booked. Are there any riders out there who have...
Looking for some advice please.
I'm thinking of a trip to Spain, two-up. We'd get the ferry from Plymouth/Portsmouth across to Santander/Bilbao. The idea is that the passenger can then rent a small bike for themselves once we get off the ferry. Then we head up to the Picos mountains on 2...
After having to pull out of a long anticipated trip down to Barcelona last year with a problem with my arm that kept me off the bike most of the year, I am now wondering about going later this year, after Harvest, so early September..ish. No Barca trip though, as big Sis is back in the UK now :(...
Have booked the ferry (Oct) and planning a quick tour of the picos returning up through France and would welcome any suggestions for descent roads/tracks around picos mountians or advice of what to look for on the map when identifying legal (tracks) routes around Picos.

In no partcular order

Hello.. there is a small place in North of Spain, just about 600kms from where I live, called Picos de Europa.. A big mountain with excellent views and great roads to ride on your bike...
Here's some pics.. Well worth the ride..
Has anyone here done any riding in this part of the world or could point
me to a source of trail maps for the area?
While I have grave doubts of my ever actually getting there, it has been a
long held ambition to ride in this area and with the purchase of the
Transalp, I start...
