The northern half of this road is extremely playful, the surface is brand new and smooth (the Street View photos are obsolete), plenty of bends neither too tight or too wide, very little traffic (except when arriving on Molina), good visibility. Possibly small rocks on the road in one or two places, but that's it. I had great fun there, a great surprise.
Winding road wt some straights
Best to start from CV720 (hard to find junction midway between Castell de Castells and Benigembla). The first 200 meters have very rough surface, probably to discourage large campers from taking this route.
A good restaurant with great views on the top, about half way to Orba. The road down the mountain and Vall de Laguar goes through several villages and has some very nice views.
Probably the best ride I've had in 20 years of biking. Lots of flowing long corners taken in 3rd and 4th and also some hairpin sections. Stunning scenery, very few cars and all in all an amazing half day out.
This is my first review so i just put my favourite first....
This is a short run starting at tarbena which is good for lunch the local boar is great .. set in the mountains or my play ground as to say .
So first off from tarberna great views to right after the right turn theres a view point worth a stop ,, next gear up as the roller coaster begins , there are numerous quite steep up hills with a ¨sharpish¨ bend to a down hill not to be done at speed if u don't know ..and its blind so be very careful !! like i said u will do this again when you know it !! its quite a thrill after theres a nice pass a open Valle if you stop in the middle to your right there is a track to some old houses and ruins if u follow the track to the end( its a gravel stoney surface but flat) u will find a runway with one of the best views east .... following back on the trail ,,,then down hill a couple of sharp U bends great scenery and road surface is very very good (thank you europe we will pay u back) finally u will end up at at T junction at castell de castells nice place to stop. I will post whats left or right another day enjoy disfruta and be safe .
Miles and miles with corners! Some sweeping curves at the end of the route, but mostly low speed corners. Beautiful scenery with several smaller villages. Though a lot of tourist traffic, Guardalest is worthwhile paying a visit on this route. Nice road surface.
Though being a short route, it provides ideal conditions for sportbikes with some long sweeping curves. Excellent surface.
Curvas y más curvas...
Ruta de interior con subida al puerto emblemático alicantino.
Preciosa ruta alternativa que recorre los montes Universales y poblaciones tan pintorescas como Albarracin. Carreteras en buen estado y paisajes preciosos. Ojo con las gasolineras, no hay muchas.
Ruta en un paraje excepcional, donde hay zonas rápidas y lentas, cambios de rasante, curvas de visibilidad reducida. Termina en el pantano.
Ruta corta x la sierra de Espadan. Paisaje montañoso espectacular. Después del puerto de Eslida la carretera se estrecha y bachea, pero se disfruta al máximo.
Did this route on new years eve 2010. Early morning. Completely deserted. Lots of lovely bends around the mountains and through the valleys. Not a fast route through Spain due to the many bends many of which are quite low speed. But amazing scenery. Well worth a detour for this.
Very technical route NOT FOR SPORTS BIKES. Surface can be loose in places. Great for GS crowd.
Not a fast route but technical. Good surfaces all the way. No police presence apart from villages. Route of a thousand bends!! Ideal for GS, Varadero, etc. R1, GSX will struggle.
Very good surface with sweepers most of the way to the turn off to Relleu. From the turn off much more technical and not for weekend warriors. Watch out for tight right on downhill straight near lake. Very little police apart from villages.
A mate & I rode this great road through unspoiled rural Spain, no traffic when we did this run in May 2009. We
e going back opposite direction August 2010
Tels bar at Avda Cabo Cope 5 El Alamiollo Puerto de Mazarron is a great starting/meeting Place and the current hosts are Chris and Jan (ex UK). It starts off from Beach front, Seaside travels through rural countryside, a few small towns/villages and over a mountain. It is only some 30km in length but has interesting areas to explore at both ends, many restaurants, Hotels, shops and facilities. Ride in either direction and round trips there and back are enjoyable. You need to be aware at all times, some of the corners could catch you out and road surface bears watching. A Good enjoyable ride overall.
Having Tels Bar to start and finish at really made it a great day.
Es una ruta mítica para todos los aficionados a las
motocicletas de Castellón y alrededores. La rápida
sucesión de curvas te hace estar permanentemente
concentrado en la carretera. Suele haber tráfico, sobre
todo en festivos, muchos ciclistas y sobre todo coches
paseando y viendo el fabuloso paisaje de la ciudad de
Castellón, su puerto y en días claros, Valencia.
Se cruza una urbanización, por lo que es un motivo más para
estar atento a la carretera. La mayoría de las curvas
no tienen visibilidad de la salida y al no estar la
carretera marcada en el eje, debes mantenerte siempre
a tu derecha, para evitar los posibles coches que pueden
aparecer en las curvas. En la bajada por el lado de Benicasim,
la moto literalmente se va. El primer tercio se puede
circular rápido, hay visibilidad en las curvas y el asfalto
está en buenas condiciones. El segundo tramo se distingue
porque se despeja la carretera, hay una semirecta y al
final una curva a derechas de 180 grados, esa es la primera,
hay cuatro más peores que esta, encajonadas en la montaña y
totalmente ciegas de salida, no la ves hasta estar en ella.
Recordad que hay que seguir pegado a la derecha,
algunos coches al subir invaden el carril contrario.
En todo el tramo es conveniente no cortar las curvas esto
debe recordarse durante toda la carretera.
Si ves algún vehículo en tu mismo sentido, recuerdalo, te lo puedes encontrar a la salida de la siguiente curva y circulará, seguro, mucho más lento que tú.
Una vez llegues al final de la bajada por Benicasim, verás que hay una pequeña rotonda en la que puedes dar la vuelta y hacer el tramo a la inversa. Hazlo, no te arrepentirás.
The first 50 kilometers from Requena offer some nice, sweeping curves with a few tighter ones that can creep up on you. Good quality tarmac. You may encounter local riders from Valencia out for a day trip.
Exceptional road, a lot of motorcyclists on this route during the weekend.
One of the best roads we found in Spain to date - a great surface for most of the rural sections where the roads twists its way through the mountains. Great for knee down work although respect is due when going through the villages. No police presence noted. Forms a good link with the Almansa - Pinoso route when heading North/South through Spain.
The road north from Pinoso is very open and straight, with a fairly good surface, however once past Yecla, it becomes like a race track with fast flowing bends, some longer straights, and good visibility all the time. Its also seems too rural to attract a police presence - well recommended for speed demons.
