Glad it wasn't just me then, I'm terrified of heights/drops as well. The carry up the rock face from the road wasn't fun either, especially when you are 5'2", 9.5 stone and hauling a 33lb bike!
Sierra Nevada , Spain. Advice please
We, uh, managed to ride most of that. Lovely technical climb. One of our party managed to blood his knee coming off uphill!
I rode it, but it was gingerly with the seat dropped for emergency bail out! Was desperately wishing i was on flat pedals as well..
It is not always that more expensive to go guided, for example probable costs (in GBP) of a week´s DIY holiday for 2 riders: pension costs 2 * 20 GBP per night * 7 nights = 280 GBP, Car hire 150 GBP, fuel 100 GBP, breakfast and packed lunch 100 GBP + massive hassle factor if you do not know the area or speak Spanish, hence TOTAL = 280 GBP + 150 GBP + 70 GBP + 100 GBP = 600 GBP. You can stay with us, bikingandalucia, with all the above taken care of ie guided and less hassle for 660 GBP (2 persons, includes airport transfer any other transfers, breakfast, lunch and guiding, workshop facilities)
+1 for Shaun at Ride Sierra Nevada.
Great location in a beautiful small village out of the resort (but close enough).
Shaun and co can tailor the ride to your desire, there is so much choice around there and he knows it like the back of his hands.
Food is excellent too!
Anyone mentioned "pure mountains" ... Ex Innerleithen / Glentress guides now relocated to SN really nice folks who offer stunning accommodation...
breakfast and packed lunch 100 GBP
For 2 people for a week?? Do you sprinkle gold dust on your porridge every morning??
If you're the kind of person who can spend £100 on brekkie and packed lunches then definitely don't ever go self-catering anywhere.
