The total ride distance for the day is 93 kilometers from Llanes to Gijón, the largest city of Asturias.  The Principality of Asturias is one of Spain’s best-kept secrets: it is a region of golden beaches, forested hills, lush meadows, alpine lakes and chiselled peaks.  Our destination for two nights is the historic, luxurious Parador de Gijón (left), housed in an old mill near the beach inside the Isabel la Catolica Park.  To download a Google Maps route map of the day's cycle, click here.  To view and download the Strava route, click here.  To download the Strava cue sheet, click here.
