MTB Riu Serpis

Biking in spectacular scenery

MTB tour Riu Serpis

On this mountain bike tour we pass through an awesome mountain landscape. The first stage of this tour takes place by car, since the starting point for the bike ride lies about an hour’s driving away from Jávea. After we have prepared ourselves and our mountain bikes for the tour, we follow a small path through a forest area at the foot of the mountains. Right from the start of the MTB tour high athletic performances are required from all participants as most of the climbing has to be done in the first 8 kilometres of the ride. In doing so, the wheels let us gain altitude very visibly and we consequently can enjoy the beautiful views this fantastic mountain landscape holds for us. Once we reach the top we can look down into the gorge where Riu Serpis lingers onwards to the valley. What lies ahead is a long descent to the small town of Lorcha.

From here we cycle through Beniarrés to the nearby reservoir „Barranc d’Almudaina de Planes“. After a short photo break, we embark on our return but not without once more stopping in Beniarrés or Lorcha and visit one of the small street cafes. Once rested and refreshed we follow the former railway track through the canyon of the Riu Serpis. We pass through several tunnels in which it is so dark that you can hardly see where you are going. During the entire time of our ride on the gravel road through the gorge new vistas of the steep slopes of the mountains open up. Overall this mountain bike tour is both a pleasure and a challenge for every mountain biker.

Breaking for drinks photos is arranged on an individual basis so that every participant can take enough photos of the mountain bike tour.
