Torrevieja to Teruel
Benageber reservoir RP 14
This route travels inland from the Mediterranean coast and heads northwards towards the Pyrenees avoiding the busy coastal routes and major highways. The countryside and scenery is typically Mediterranean, with vineyards, olive groves and scrub land. After 30 minutes you will be in the open countryside with long distance views of small mountain ranges ahead, and when you pass these, there is another range, and another and another. The road surface is very good and there are some fast sweeping bends that will put a smile on any motorcyclists face.

I have suggested a fuel and lunch stop at El Pontón RP 11. The La Brassa restaurant is next door to the gas station and they welcome motorcyclists.

After lunch the route takes a smaller road and heads towards the magnificent Benagéber reservoir at RP 14. The road is very twisty and has several hairpin bends. There is an opportunity to take pictures on the dam and anyone with a loud exhaust will appreciate the tunnel! This enormous reservoir is fed by the Rio Turia which we will meet up with again at RP 17 when we cross over it on a high bridge and follow its path, with more hairpins all the way to the hotel at Teruel.
The Hotel Isabel de Segura has 3*** is very comfortable and has secure parking. See the link below.

I have awarded this route 3 stars *** as the roads, scenery and attractions are all good.

About this region
NGC 2985 is a spiral galaxy located in the constellation Ursa Major. It is located at a distance of circa 70 million light years from Earth, which, given its apparent dimensions, means that NGC 2985 is about 95,000 light years across. It was discovered by William Herschel on April 3, 1785.The galaxy is seen with an inclination of 37 degrees. The galaxy has a bright nucleus from which emanate multiple tightly wound spiral fragments. Numerous blue knots are visible at the galactic disk. At the outer part of the galaxy lies a massive spiral arm that forms a pseudoring that encircles the galaxy. The inner part of the galaxy, where active star formation has been observed, has been found to be unstable, contrary to the outer stable one. It has been suggested that the presence of molecular clouds accounts for the instability of the region.The nucleus of NGC 2985 is active, and based on its spectrum has been categorised as a LINER. The most accepted theory for the activity source is the presence of an accretion disk around a supermassive black hole. The mass of the supermassive black hole at the centre of NGC 2985 is estimated to be 160 million (108.2) M☉, based on stellar velocity dispersion. The velocity dispersion is anisotropic, and changes with the azimuth. The rotational speed of the galaxy at its effective radius is 222.9 ± 31.2 km/s.NGC 2985 is the brightest member of a galaxy group known as the NGC 2985 group. Other members of the group include NGC 3027, 25 arcminutes away. Other nearby galaxies include NGC 3252, and NGC 3403.
