The exit of a large city is always tedious, especially due to signs of all kinds that prevent the yellow arrows from being appreciated. After Gijón we await a stroll along Mount Areo, the valley of Carreño and the last eight kilometers through AS-19, wrapped in the industrial landscape surrounding Avilés.
After leaving the network of streets of Gijón, the route searches by road the base of Monte Areo, and through asphalted streets, among small urbanizations, we gain height admiring a landscape where two extremes come together: Industry and nature.
The asphalt reverses on its way and we are surrounded by a mass of eucalyptus. After the sign of Dolmen de San Pablo, we turn left to descend to the valley of Carreño and Santa Eulalia del Valle. We went through this valley for four kilometres and arrived in Tamón after a tunnel. Tamón is left by AS-326 and we link to AS-19, which leads us first to Trasona and later to Avilés.
