A nice route with good scenary, not super fast but interesting anyway. Can be busy during holiday season as it so picturesque.

A7000 : Malaga - Colmenar ( The Road to Heaven )

Andalucia > Spain > Europe
December 10, 2007 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.4

Entire new road surface December 2007, totally flawless. Amazing view over Malaga for 1st quarter. Amazing views over mountains above Velez Malaga and down to the Med during middle section. Amazing views north over the Torcal Park limestone mountains during last quarter. Sharp switchbacks in first 3km and last 2km. Apart from 1 slow bend halfway the rest is perfectly balance twisters and winding straights. I rode an R1200GS Adventure but anything from an R6 to a Goldwing will work. Party trick is the twin corkscrew when you go over youself twice. Rode nearly 2000km in 5 days around Andalucia - its just incredible nearly everywhere but this road was just perfect. Went back 6 times!

A long day with some of the best scenery on the doorstep it doesn't get much better for thinning down the outside rubber. We do this twice in the season to make you feel alive

Over the hill to Switzerland

You start at the foot of Mt Blanc and then work your way over 2 passes to Switzerland. Great scenery, great road--- but just try to avoid during peak tourist hours. Plenty of straits to sort out the camper vans as they appear on the horizon.
