Location

Near deserted these roads offer some of the best cycling in Spain. From journeys through gently rolling Olive groves, to high passes, and alpine climbs. The park rewards every revolution of the pedals with dramatic panoramas, contour hugging roads and alpine climbs that deserve a place on every keen cyclists palmares.

The landscape and geography of the park, and its surrounding area, means there’s little chance of keeping any decent ride under a 1,000m of ascent. The park births two of southern Spain’s most important rivers in these high mountains, and they have carved deep valleys that twist their way out of the mountains to the oceans. On their way they break through the towering limestone walls and have created a rolling convoluted topography of foothills where tributaries have formed countless gullies and vales. The roads that cross this patchwork sea of olive plantations are almost empty, save for the occasional John Deere or old man on a scooter laden with baskets.

The high passes are characterised by steep roads leading to ancient fortress towns nestled in Spain´s last remaining expanse of ancient forest. Its quiet, tranquil and traffic free.. (almost!)
