Vias Verdes

Last week, over two days, I managed to cycle best part of the Vias Verdes (Greenways) in the Spanish provinces of Córdoba and Jaén known as the V.V de la Subbética and the V.V del Aceite, some 160 km (100 miles) there and back. There had been heavy rain the week before, leaving mud slides to navigate in one or two places, but I had a super time. I would have finished the route on the third day but I'm afraid my backside said No! http://www.viasverdes.com/GreenWays

Sounds interesting (especially the mud slides!) What's the terrain like and what do you ride? Good distance - whatever the terrain so well done! As for the sore backside - padded pants/shorts and a good saddle should sort it.... (I love my Brooks Professional and I have ridden it long enough for it to have broken me in!!!)

Thanks for you input, mrandmrspoves! I was wearing padded shorts but reckon I need to invest in better ones! I only got my hybrid bike in the summer. It's a Specialized Sirrus Elite and I'm ever so pleased with it. The Vias Verdes vary in terrain, but are mainly tarmacked or compacted earth or gravel. In some places the tarmac has broken up, but there are no huge potholes!
