Good news for cycling enthusiasts, La Vuelta Ciclista a España will flow along the Costa Tropical as part of Leg 10 between Roquetas de Mar and Rincón de la Victoria. Bad news for everyone else.
However, for the rest of us, who think they’re all lunatics, it’s going to be a right pain in the sitting cushions because the N-340 is going to be veritably disrupted, as if it weren’t bad enough between the Salobreña and Motril/Granada junctions this summer.
This tenth leg covers 189 kilomotres and will be tackled after a day of rest. It will end on a mountain road – thankfully not the Cabra/Otívar road.
No doubt enthusiasts will line the road on Almuñecar’s Mirador de Cotobro and Cerro Gordo gradients, as well as the stretches between Castell de Ferro & Calahonda and Carchuna & Torrenueva Costa.
Anyway, this calamity will hit the Costa Tropical Tuesday early afternoon so don’t go near the N-340 if you value your sanity and retina health.
