Avoiding Mountains

Jump to last reply

Hi, first post, I used to live in Tenerife, I'm back in the UK for family reasons, but intend to head back to Tenerife, or at least Southern Spain for January February 2014. My favoured mode of transport is my Harley, in fact it's my only mode of transport as I don't own a car.
I've done the journey from Huelva Spain, to the UK 3 times on my bike, going the most direct route of Seville, Madrid, Santander, then France, Biarritz, Le Mans, and on to Calais for the tunnel. Last time was February this year, and it was cold with snow on the mountains, almost unridable in places.
When I go back this coming winter my intention is to go to Santander via ferry from Portsmouth.
Does anyone know if it is possible to follow the coast along northern Spain and into Portugal, then follow the coast along Portugal, to avoid the mountain ranges? I've looked online on a couple of maps, but it doesn't show the contours too well, it would be much better to hear from someone who has already ridden / driven this route.

Thanks in advance.
