The “Lo Far West” spirit

When Collserola is too small, when you already did “el carrilet” so many times that sucks, when you are able to ride a lot of kilometers but you don’t take advantage of that and you are alwars spinning on the same places, for all this things, we propose you to go to Lleida on the minimum slope and maximum safety trail (avoiding heavy traffic roads).

Taking back millennial ways, crossing forgotten villages, remembering the history, to discover endless gravel roads and know better the country right on the corner.

We plan this trail as a cyclotourist self-supported brevet: non competitive, each one at their own tempo but following a certain time schedule from organisation, knowing the environment and the difficulties, ready to face off any adversity.

As the route is so long we prefer to plan it as a two day trip. A camp will be settled in Òdena to overnight. Get ready to bring you sleeping bag and your mattress!
