3 small passes finishing up with the most spectacular view of the Picos and La Hermida, just turn east at Pineres 43.241567N 4.561408W to find the viewpoint. 500 meters above the road and river below, the peak across the road is 700 meters above it.
Really nice stretch of road that you can have a good time riding. Not many elevation changes but it's constantly flowing left and right. Best ridden with lots of friends :)
The Kirkstone pass, a great road with some very nice corners
This is a cracking route
I've riden this section both on the bike and in a car. Its quite a tight, twisty and undulating piece of road. The surface is in good condition but there are a lot of bobbles in the road, these are more due to the type of countryside it runs through than the surface being neglected. It runs through some nice scenery but the road demands your attenion so you dont get a lot of time to take it all in. During periods of rain it can get very slippery in places as some sections run under a shroud of trees and there are places where fallen leaves can cover the road.
