EMERGENCY services have confirmed that a motorcyclist has died after falling from their machine in an accident on the famous road from the Costa del Sol to Ronda today (Friday).

The incident happened in the municipality of Parauta on the winding, mountain road – the A-397 – that runs from San Pedro on the coast to the Serrania de Ronda.

The road is very popular with bikers, particularly at the weekends, with its challenging twists and turns.


There have been numerous biker deaths on the road despite the installation of radar speed cameras and regular patrols by the Guardia Civil police.

  1. Very sad, but as you say it has very “Challenging Twists and Turns”. They become more challenging the faster you go. There are several small shrines along the route to bikers who didn’t make it.
