Sierras de Tejeda (1358)m

The national park of Sierras de Tejeda sits between the major city of Granada and the seaside resort of Almunacar

Description

We ride this in both directions. From the north (Granada) its a slow climb up out of the hustle and bustle of the Granada suberbs into the national park along what would have been the main road south ( now replaced by the motorway) . The climb up is gradual over 45km before topping out with superb views over the neighbouring mountains. Once at the top it is a 36km descent to the sea and the town of Almunacar. The approach from the south takes you from sea level to over 1300m over the same 36km. On the way up you get to enjoy the scenery at a better pace.
