The Ronda Road, Andalucia, Spain

It’s one of the best roads we ride, winding up from San Pedro on the Mediterranean coast to Ronda, high up in the Andalucian mountains. At the beginning the signpost reads 48 K, the next 30 to 40 minutes are non-stop fun!

The corners never stop, sweeping from left to right as the gradient rises gently – the surface beneath your tyres inspires confidence so you can enjoy the challenges before you. On the way up there are a few cafes to stop and take in the scenery and watch the other bikes fly by. You always know a road is good by the amount of locals on it and the road to Ronda always brings them out.

It’s also a road regularly used by manufacturers to launch new models, we saw Ducati Diavels and BMW K1600’s in early 2011 being ridden by journalists, all enjoying the sunshine of Spain.

As you leave San Pedro there’s enough traffic to hold you up however as you climb the traffic vanishes. We’ve been there during the week and weekends and it’s the same, once you start climbing away from the heavily populated coastal region you can make good progress!

It’s a superb two wheeled experience and one we look forward year after year. It never lets you down, the higher up you go the more sweeping the bends become, lower down it challenges the rider, honing your skills and developing your riding.

Normally heading down hill can be more challenging and less enjoyable but the Ronda road blesses you with two wheeled heaven either way you go! If you’ve never ridden the A-397, get yourself to Andalucia, southern Spain, it really is one of many exceptional roads!

Spyder Club are visit Spain in November 2012 and March 2013. Our routes take in the Ronda road, up and down!
