“Somewhere in la Mancha, in a place whose name I do not care to remember, a gentleman lived not long ago, one of those who has a lance and ancient shield on a shelf and keeps a skinny nag and a greyhound for racing.” - Don Quixote, the world's first modern novel
You’ll ride and make friends with bikepackers from all over the world including the USA, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Canada, Belgium and beyond.
Cycle endless paths and lonely roads with the backdrop of mills, vineyards, hills and that will make the delights of bikepackers on MTB or Gravel bikes.
There are numerous drinking fountains along the route in the quaint villages, and you will have to seal your safe passage at four checkpoints with a special stamp. There will be food and water laid on there too.
