Are you prepared for the Spanish mountains?

Did you know that Spain is the second most mountainous country in Europe? Switzerland being the most mountainous. It is important to be aware of this before you take on Spain to avoid being shocked. Do not be afraid, if you ride your bike weekly you are capable of riding Spains hardest climbs. What you will realise is that once in Spain and on your bike and moving you are already getting used to the mountains. It takes at least an hour for a cyclist to warm up in Spain so if you have long climbs ahead the easier it will be to adjust, sounds strange but it's true. What you must try and do is take short breaks or a short coffee stop. If you end up having long and heavy lunches your body will find it really hard to adjust to the terrain. BikingSpain knows this and accommodates you with a support car to keep you fueled with water and snacks whilst on the go. The stops you make ought to be for views and photo stops or a short break. So dont be nervous that you havent trained enough, if you have come out to Spain then the training starts here. The best place to prepare for mountains are in the mountains. Happy biking!
