Aha in Rioja
The striking honey-gold fields of La Rioja region in northern Spain is a marvelous sight to behold. The route is so complex, that whilst there, you could have it all: history-laden fortresses, surreal-looking landscapes, art, world-famous wine and, of course, palatable cuisine. As you pedal swiftly via the beautiful Ebro River Valley, your heart will leap at mesmerizing canyons, medieval towns scattered on the hills and traditional bodegas loaded with superb wines. As you ride through the picturesque town of Briones, you will be able to brush up your vino skills at Museo Dinastia Vivanco, regarded as one of the best wine museums in the world, and even follow a portion of the renowned 1,000-year-old pilgrim route of Santiago de Compostela.
