Memorial Pedro Llorente

The Memorial Pedro Llorente is a great little sportive. Starting in the little village of Balmori not far from Llanes the route incorporates two main climbs; the Torneria and El Torno. The event has a great atmosphere and with only a couple of hundred riders it’s a very relaxed and friendly event. It’s quite tough and includes lots of climbing but this means the route offers some spectacular scenery. I have ridden it twice and really enjoyed the event, which I rode with RG Team. Here are a couple of links to my blogs about the ride: http://bikeasturias.net/2015/05/23/the-sportive-memorial-pedro-llorente  and http://bikeasturias.net/2016/06/03/marcha-cicloturista-pedro-llorente-great-day-bike/

The route and stats are as follows:

Distance: 110km

Elevation Gain: 1975m
