Briones is surrounded by colourful landscapes and Haro is known as “the capital of Rioja wine” with its numerous palaces. Finally the snaking Ebro River, is a delightful area with little traffic.

Kathy and I would like to thank Cycling Country for setting up the tour, providing the bikes, maps, information sheets/booklet and directions. Definitely, an A-One job. It was a pleasure meeting Warren, Geoff and Maggie. Otherwise as we said, the trip was great and the organization and preparatory help from Cycling Country was superb. A great big thank you from us both.”
