Touring in Spain first time

Hi I am starting my first bike tour in Madrid next week and then travelling out from there. I would really appreciate any advise on reasonable accomadations for madrid and for touring that part of Europe I will be touring for at least two months and have a tent and gear to help keep costs down whenever possible. I am a seasoned camper and traveller but brand new at bike touring. I am in my mid fifties and currently travelling solo. Any advise would be much appreciated.

Touring In Spain

Hi Dale - Would suggest heading south, maybe even jumping on a bus to Andalucia, for the first part of your tour. It's just starting to warm up here in Andalucia and so you would head north with the spring weather keeping you company. There are 1000's of possible routes, depends on your interests; there are caminos, coastal routes, hills, mountains, history, art, food, wine. Also have a look at Portugal while you're over this way. Enjoy your trip.

Hi Dale,

I often use a site called Airbnb. I have used it all over Europe. You can get to stay with locals for very little money. I also use Couchsurfers. But I would think there were plenty of WS hosts in Spain.

Have a great trip. You will soon get into the routine.

Southern Spain

Hey Dale,
I've been cycling along the southern coast of Spain towards Portugal last month and it was great, especially a 35 km beach ride.
You can find the route and the informations over here:
