Bikeasturias is pleased to announce that we are now working in association with TRACKSASTURES to provide the best Mountain Bike holiday to be found in Asturias, an unforgettable adventure of a lifetime. Please see below for information about TracksAstures and to make a booking enquiry:
Asturias offers some of the best mountain biking in Europe, the only problem is knowing where to begin. Planning off road routes is not easy as well as being very time consuming, but with Tracks Astures all the hard work is done for you. Tracks Astures is a route that has been meticulously designed to provide the best mountain bike experience. Created by Ruth Moll (ex professional cyclist), the route starts in Nava and takes you on a journey through the breathtaking landscape of Asturias. Traversing beautiful roads and trails, you will ride through the cider region of Asturias before visiting several Asturian landmarks, such as Cangas Onis, the birth place of the Reconquista and the gateway to the Picos de Europa.
Encompassing both mountain and Coastal tracks the route offers a diversity hard to find anywhere else. You will pass through the Coastal Nature reserve at Villaviciosa, ride through Gijon, the capital of the Costa Verde and follow the well trodden tracks of the Camino de Santiago. Indeed, the roads and tracks are steeped in history and are some of the oldest routes of the St’ James’s Way. If riding through lush forests, fertile coastal valleys and majestic mountains wasn’t enough, you will also be treated to a free tour of a Cider factory and get to sample the local produce.
The route is tough (approx. 210km long with approx 5400m of climbing) and as such a certain level of fitness is essential, as well as a reasonable amount of Mtb experience (although a preparation training plan can be provided). The route can be adjusted to meet your endurance requirements, so you can take more days to do it if you prefer although our recommendation is to do it in 4 stages. You also have the option of having a specialised guide who can accompany you all the way, providing help and riding tips whenever needed. You will be provided with GPS devices (max 3 GPS devices per group). Luggage transport between hotels can be arranged and a list of the best places to eat and visit at your stop-over’s will be provided.
On completion of the route you will receive a very attractive complementary Track Astures short sleeve cycling jersey.
