    Hello ! Last year I had a 12 days long bicycle tour in Andalucia, Spain. My ai was to cycle up to Pico Veleta (3394 m) and anther high climbs above 2000m + few another panoramic roads. I cycled Pico Veleta twice: 1st I was cycling from the beach of Motril carrying 25-28kg weighted panniers on it and at midnight I turned back after reaching the end of the pavement. 2 days ater I cycled back to Veleta from Granada without panniers but in ideal lights and strong wind. The view was superb: the sea, GIbraltar could be seen and Africa too (a little bit). UP to now I cycled all of the paved ascents of the Alps, Pyrenées and Canary islands finishing above 2000m, and after them I can say, this climb is between the 3 most wonderful ascents. The list of my climbs with the links of videos about cycling them: http://www.gyorgyigabor.hu/GYG_osszes_hago.php UP to now I uploaded 3 videos about the climbs finishing above 2000 m: Pico Veleta (3396 m) - wonderful !!!! Sierra Nevada contains another paved road, that reaches the 2000 m level: PUerto de la Ragua: We cycled from North: Puerto de la Ragua (2000 m) - bringával Andalúziában / Bicycle tour in Andalucia - YouTube (I don't know, why it couldn't be a "video-window" ) The 2nd climb is not too known: Tetica de Bacares (2080 m, with 360 degrees panorama) is situated ca. 80 kms North from Almeria. There is a saddle not far from the peak: Puerto de Velefique (1860 m): it was visited by Vuelta a'Espagna I think minimum twice. I saw Indurain sign on a rock along the mountain road The ascent to that saddle is very scenic because of the lot of hairpin-bends. In the video the climb starts at the ca. 14th minute Best regards, www.gyorgyigabor.hu
