Stage 5. Granada- Veleta Peak- Granada. 61 mi/ 9103 ft
Today we do an unforgettable ride. It is the highest paved road in Europe and we have to enjoy every bit of it. We are climbing a very demanding ascent to 11500 ft. but with the support of our vans it won't be impossible. Hopefully in October we will be able to ride to the very top and the snow won't stop us. If so, it will be as exciting. Great ride to Sierra Nevada. As somebody put it: "It is like we were riding in an airplane!!!"
