TWO ROUTES CYCLISTS IN PICOS DE EUROPA VERY RECOMMENDED
“LA JUBILAR BIKE”
This route is called that because that is the name given to the competition that is held here every year in the month of September and that is becoming more famous and is gaining more recognition. Regardless of the competition, this circular route through the Picos de Europa has two options that we will explain below.
You can start it from the inn, since it passes by and since it is a circular route, you can start it at any point.
OPTION 1: Make the short route, which is 108 km. surrounding the valleys and ports of the area. All this circular route through the Picos de Europa is done by the community of Cantabria. The route ascends the Piedraslenguas port. Without reaching the top, turn left to go down the Cohilla reservoir towards Puentenansa. Then climb two mythical passages: Ozalba and Hoz, to descend to the Hermida and return to the inn by the Desfiladero de la Hermida.
OPTION 2: it is quite hard, 182 km. between Cantabria, Palencia and León, passing through several valleys and climbing ports such as San Glorio. It is also a circular route but much longer than the previous one. This route ascends the Piedraslenguas port to reach Cervera de Pisuerga. There begins the well-known Pantanal Route to Boca de Huérgano, where the Port of San Glorio begins. From this port, a long and spectacular descent to the inn.
“CLIMB TO THE PORT OF SAN GLORIO”
This route is an ascent to a mountain port, the Port of San Glorio, which divides the communities of Cantabria and Castilla y León. In total there are about 58 km. round trip and it is a route that climbs to a port that reaches 1610 meters from Potes, which is only 291 meters above sea level, so the gradient that rises on the route is important.
