From 16-17-18 October, 2020, the epicenter of Rioja wine will become the world center of classic cycling when the people of Haro welcome Eroica Hispania for the first time. Dust off your Razesa or your Zeus and get set for great new routes to explore, including more sections of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. But not only that, you will find fresh options for hotels and rural houses for sleeping, more bars and restaurants to relax and enjoy, as well as plenty of activities and services to keep you entertained and make your stay enjoyable... in short, a diverse tapestry of cultural and gastronomic attractions, surprising and authentic, await.

La Rioja will once again furnish medieval villages, spring colors and vibrant flavors, winding gravel roads, wide-open landscapes and cheering spirit as the perfect scenery for your classic bike ride.

Our main ambition is to improve your experience from one edition to the following one, and we hope that this hard work will impact very positively on your next Eroica Hispania ride (especially for those who will ride 184 km instead of 192 km)

La Rioja is an area of vineyards, of great cultural and environmental interest, sister of the original L’Eroica in Chianti (Tuscany). Along the route we will go through some of the most representative wineries in the Rioja region. This is not only an area of wines, but also of great artistic and cultural interest, where the first writings were conducted in Castilian and where Roman architecture has great impact.

We will ride not only for vineyards and wineries, but also fortresses, castles and watchtowers. The Eroica Hispania shares some locations with one of the most famous way of the world: the Camino de Santiago.

Definitely an event that returns the values of cycling in its origins, enjoying the journey, gastronomy and landscape. A tribute to the land and its people in a unique setting as La Rioja.
