Day 189: Carchuna to Granada

Sunday October 9, 2005, 107 km (66 miles) – Total so far: 11,705 km (7,273 miles)

It was a tough ride through the mountains to Granada. We chose the scenic route that included a climb to over 1200m starting at sea level. The day began along on the coast as far as Almuñécar before we turned north to the hills. The climb seemed particularly difficult, but we’re not sure exactly why. I suppose it was very steep in places.

We arrived in Granada just in time to find a hostel before it got dark.
