Here is a link to my pictures. There are 660 of them, so look at your own risk. As usual, I photograph horribly, so you can pass those by quickly.

I had to stop looking. I'm turning green with envy. What a beautiful place.

What tour company did you go with?

It's called Cycling Country. It is absolutely the best one we have done. It is run by a young couple who decided to "bag" the rat race in London and move to Spain and start this company. They employ one other guy. The owner was an endurance champ in the UK and the other guy still is racing at age 44. And the owner's wife is a pretty tough rider, too. They made us all feel special, and it was different then going with a huge company, like Trek, or even a medium sized one like Classic Adventures, which we used for our Quebec tour.

They paid a lot of attention to safety, and provided options for those who didn't feel comfortable doing certain things. There was one town and inn that none of us liked, and they listened to us and will be changing the route. Plus, this is the area they ride in all of the time. The night before we got to Granada, we spent in the town where they live. We stored the bikes in their office, met their daughter, and got a good feel for what it's like to live in Spain as an ex-pat. Plus, the group was small compared to other tours we've done.

Wow! Looks great.

Many of the photos look like you were there after the plague or the zombies ate the rest of the population.
