Re: Bardenas Realas -Advice

No problem, a well graded road.
Just follow the signs and stick to the main route around, it gets more rough if you go on the trails off the main one.
Sports bikes, cars, camper vans, they are all on there.
But a great little trip, a nice visitor centre with cold drinks and a clean WC :D

Have fun, just done Carcassonne to Spain and along the Pyrenees on the TET, had great fun appart the weather!! Cold and wet. The TET is a great idea and loved the challenges it throws up.
