Motorbike routes in the province of Jaén
Fortunately, the Jaén area has a wide variety of landscapes that you will discover at every turn.
THE ENJOYMENT OF THE SIERRA
This is the name given to one of the best known routes for lovers of two wheels in this province. This route starts in the town of Villanueva del Arzobispo. We recommend that you stop for breakfast and visit the town, which will take you no more than two hours.
Once you are ready, the motorbike route continues towards Albacete on the N-322 until you reach La Puerta de Segura. You will be able to see some of the remains of the old medieval fortifications in the town. Leaving La Puerta de Segura behind and taking the A-310 towards Siles we continue our route.
If you like motorbikes, this stretch of road will be perfect for you as it is fast and fun, with hairpin bends and unique scenery.
A stop in Siles is obligatory:
This municipality has a reservoir that belongs to the Natural Park of Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas. Passing through here on two wheels will make this route an incredible experience.
Once you have taken in the views, you should continue on to Segura de la Sierra. This small town was declared a Historic-Artistic Site in November 1972 and is a Picturesque Landscape. Continue following the signs to Cortijos Nuevos and Hornos de Segura on the JA-9118.
Along the stretch of the JA-9118 you will come across the Tranco de Beas reservoir, a green area that can only be found on this motorbike route through Jaén.
The route “El disfrute de la sierra” is coming to an end, but before heading back to Villanueva del Arzobispo we recommend you to visit the recreational area of Charco del Aceite.
Depending on the time of year you visit this area is a perfect place for a swim. It also has tables, wooden seats and a kiosk bar.
