Tour of Northern Spain
Attached is the route (as logged by my SatNav) that Rodbargee, myself and a couple of others took on a tour of Northern Spain. We started in Bilbao and did a circular (sort of) route, going south of Madrid and taking in Toledo, Segovia, Salamanca and the Picos mountains.
You will need to have Google Earth installed on your PC (just google 'Download Google Earth', it's a free download) and then you should be able to launch the file and it will open up the route in Google Earth automatically.
You will then see an outline of the route on a map of Spain. You can then zoom in on any part of the route.
Flying the Route
If you look to the left of the screen you will see a column with a heading of 'Places'. Double click on the file you just opened (~GE576.kmz) and it should open up a file tree below it. If you then single click on 'Spain 11 Bike Trip' and then click on the small folder icon at the bottom right corner of the 'Places' column then you should start to 'fly' the route. There should be a small control panel open at the bottom of the map that will let you pause/FF/RW etc.
