Day 5 Bilbao to Viesgo
Mirador de La Sía (RP22)
This route is part of a 10 day motorcycle vacation.

There are no scheduled stops for refueling, eating or drinking. When the opportunity presents itself, stop at one of the points indicated by a POI. Along the way there are several small villages with restaurants or cafes.
Hotels, sights and recommended points to stop to enjoy the view are also marked with a POI.

On day 5 we drive parts along the coastline but also over several passes with many vantage points (Miradors), these are well marked along the road with signs. There is often also a small parking space, so take the time to stop and enjoy the beautiful panoramas.

The roads in the route are really very good and contain many curves. You drive through changing landscapes, beautiful valleys, mountains and rocks, along rivers and lakes, so there is plenty to enjoy along the way.

You drive through Collados del Asón Natural Park (RP23), this is a nature park with parts of the river Asón, Cantabria, Spain. It was declared a natural park by Cantabria on 18 February 1999.

It is located in the Cantabrian Mountains in southeastern Cantabria, with an area of 4,740 ha, of which 4020 ha belongs to the municipality of Soba and 720 ha is private land. The altitude varies between 240 and 1,632 meters above sea level.

It is characterized by limestone rocks, small beech forests and unique Cantabrian holm oaks, along with artificial meadows for livestocks. This varied habitat allows the development of a varied natural feature of the Cordillera. The park is located in an area that is traditionally very uninhabited, making it so natural and undisturbed.

There are several beautiful passes that you ride over with many beautiful curves, but beware sometimes the roads are very narrow. A number of passes are indicated with a Route point, such as;
RP6 Puerto de Las Muñecas
RP23, 24 and 25 Collado del Asón has several viewpoints, especially at RP25 there is a beautiful view of the valley.
RP26 Puerto de Alisas
RP34 BU-570 Puerto de las Estacas de Trueba
RP38, 39 and 40 Pas de La Braguía, multiple viewpoints.

On the way you pass several beautiful and interesting places to stop. A number are given with an RP such as;
RP10. The beautiful castle Castillo de Santa Ana
RP12 Playa 2a de la Pequena laguna, nice place to have a drink and enjoy the view over the bay.
RP22 Puerto de la Sia
RP33 Beautiful old stone bridge across the Trueba

About this region
The Tour of the Basque Country (Officially: Itzulia Basque Country, Spanish: Vuelta al País Vasco, Basque: Euskal Herriko Itzulia) is an annual cycling stage race held in the Spanish Basque Country in April. It is one of the races that make up the UCI World Tour calendar. As the Basque Country is a mountainous area, there are few flat stages, and thus the event favors those who are strong climbers. The race is characterized by its short stages, rarely exceeding 200 km, and steep ascents. While the ascents featured in the race aren't particularly high compared to other stage races, they are among the steepest seen in professional cycling, some having sections with gradients reaching well above 20%.
