Day off the bike today so took some photos of Monachil before heading to the Spanish coast to sort out a there and back route over 2 days with a stay in the seaside resort of Almunecar. Its approximately 100 km from Monachil steadly rising to 1500 metres on a moutain road before dropping down to Almunecar at sea level. Both ways look challenging but the climb out of Alumecar will be a tough one.
