Rutas verano

The summer is getting closer, the temperature is climbing and plans are starting to climb out of the woodwork. This can only mean one thing: now is the time to plan our holidays. The sooner we do it, the more opportunities we’ll have of finding accommodation at a good price. If you’re thinking of taking your motorbike out of the garage and becoming best friends with it during the summer months, take note, because you’re guaranteed to love these routes. What’s more, they aren’t the best known, so you can discover new, spectacular places.

Ribeira Sacra – Galicia (Spain)

One of the jewels of our country. Even if Galicia is full of them, the Ribeira Sacra takes away the breath of everyone who sees it. From NG BRAKES, we suggest a route that starts in Monforte de Lemos, whose first stop is Parada Do Sil. From there, you’ll take in the canyons and typical vineyards of the area and, if you’re game, go on a Catamaran rider in the river Sil. After that, the route continues until Os Peares, where you can see where the rivers Miño and Sil meet. Finally, you have two options: return to Monforte de Lemos or keep going until Orense, where you can enjoy the thermal waters the following day.

Cote d’Azur (France)

This second motorcycle route isn’t so far away. And, if the Cote d’Azur in France is a typical holiday destination in the summer, there are still numerous delightful roads for two-wheeled enthusiasts which aren’t usually overcrowded. The well-known Route des Corniches, from Menton to Nice, will allow you to enjoy many curves and spectacular views, especially if you opt for the highest road. Our recommendation is you stop in as many villages as you can, especially Eze, which is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful in Europe.

Santorini (Greece)

If you can’t decide between a road trip and a few days on the beach… We have the solution! Fly to Santorini, where you can enjoy its beautiful landscapes bathed in the white of the island’s typical buildings and its crystal-clear waters. Once there, rent a scooter and ride around the island. It may not be the route you were expecting. But the thrill of following these curves with the wind in your hair, and the chance to enjoy the surroundings and discover places that are not too busy, is still there.

Vlora-Saranda (Albania)

Albania is one of those destinations that has gradually been gaining prominence every summer. A few years ago, it was largely unknown. But now everyone wants to visit. Its crystal-clear waters, beautiful beaches and authentic villages are three of the reasons why it has become a summer hit. One of the most popular routes for bikers is the one between Vlorë and Sarandë, along the coastline, which features stunning views of the sea and cliffs.

Betws-Y-Coed Triangle (Wales)

North Wales is full of spectacular scenery, with routes that will delight walkers and hikers alike. And it has plenty to offer the two-wheeled enthusiast, too. One of the most popular routes is the Betws-Y-Coed Triangle. It’s made up of three roads linking Betws-Y-Coad and Rhutin, and is so popular and beautiful that it’s even used to film motorcycle tests, as well as other vehicles. Our recommendation is to ride along all three roads, stop to explore the local villages and, once you’ve parked your bike, enjoy the atmosphere in the pubs. And if you fancy swapping two wheels for two hiking boots, don’t miss Snowdonia National Park.
