Opinions and comments

The ascensión of El Angliru that I saw on televisión seemed unattainable to me. WithBike Paradise I fulfilled a dream that I will not forget and I got to know the city of Oviedo, its old town, its museums, its restaurants. Sport and tourism perfectly fit.

For us, going to Los Lagos de Covadonga was the goal. Along the way, we also ended up enjoying the coast of Llanes. We have both discovered a región to which we will certainly return with Bike Paradise.
