    Patrick: the Cumbre/Salobreña lane is a video-game nightmare – on a bike, it’s alright, but in a car, with the vegetation (especially the bamboo cane) blocking the view, you run the risk of dropping a wheel into the irrigation channel if you meet a lorry coming the other way.

    Scary enough from the bus station to La Cumbre area. Let alone where I live now ,above the cemetery. !!
    Yes it’s a road Jim. But on a cycle or motorcycle you’re very frail.
