Biking abroad- Spain
Did you ever consider to go on a motorcycling riding holiday? But without your motorcycle? The summer is here and in the UK the summer isn't really summer. You can't really enjoy a long ride without passing through sunny, windy, rainy, cloudy, stormy weather all in one 300 miles long ride. I'm looking at the sky and all I see are clouds. I want to go on holiday, somewhere nice but not far, to enjoy the sun, a glass of wine and a pool with a scenery and just go in my flip flops... but wait! I feel that I'm cheating on my mechanical partner- my motorcycle. Last year I've visited Barcelona (a short city break, no riding one) and was love at first sight with Spain. With this thought but, adding motorcycle dream to ride in my holiday, I've started my research and came across an English riding couple that moved to Spain. Cliff & Carol and their biking/traveling/riding/visiting/enjoying Spain company- Biking Abroad https://www.bikingabroad.com/ .
Hmmm... that sounds nice. Searching more on the web site I found out that they offer you new bikes... Now everything sounds even more appealing. Brand new Yamaha MT09 or MT07. Take your pick!
So with the bike, I'm sorted.
Now, I think that I need to take all my gear with me in the luggage, but wait, I came across another information: they provide you the gear!!! SO HAPPY, finally I have space for my new summer clothes and for my big summer hats!
Now let's see the itinerary. I like vitamin sea! So, I wanna ride on the coast and I wonder if that is possible so I read more on the website. YES! Is possible! They can make an itinerary special for you, just need to let them know what you want, orrrr you can just relax in their countryside house, with all inclusive, by the pool, after a day long ride.
Bike checked; gear checked; accommodation with all inclusive, itinerary checked!

Spain is such a culturally diverse, vibrant and enthralling country. It often feels like a dozen small countries rolled into one.
Next step, the prices. I've found out that I can just be pillion and take a lot of photos and relax or I can actually ride the bike so the range is quite affordable for everybody! All you need is to contact the team, tell them what you want and you will have your custom made holiday especially for you. You need only to take care of the flight tickets and let everything go.
So BUEN DIA sun, ocean, Spain, motorcycle, riding HOLIDAY here I come!
Ops....hold your horses Andreea, stop dreaming! First, you need to book it :D
Ride safe Yours, truly Andreea
