Sierra de las Cabras Nature Reserve

Post by XTreme » Sun Jul 05, 2020 2:51 pm

Went from the province of Granada, into Murcia, and then into Castilla–La Mancha to enter the Sierra de las Cabras nature reserve.

From then on I was running blind..........cos that's as far as Google Maps goes. The road was pretty decent though......until I got deep into the nature reserve. Then it all changed!

It would need a dualsport and a fair degree of offroad riding ability to keep going, and unfortunately I was not in possession of either of those two things.

There's some places that an OAP on a 220kg Strom just shouldn't go.......and that was one of them!

But this was what it became! This was my turn around point.......because from thereon it dropped steeply and the surface was all jagged rocks!
