Bike ride that will reveal a little-traveled valley with small villages nestled at the foot of the Sierra Mariola, as well as the source of the river Vinalopó
This route is listed as easy, so it does not require a high level of fitness.
Ideal for people who want to combine sport, landscapes, culture and gastronomy.
It runs largely along the Xixarra greenway.
There are also stretches where we have chosen very quiet side roads where it will be difficult to see cars.
Day by day
- Day 1: Arrival in Bocairent. Circular Valleta d’Agres. 22 km
At 10 am we will receive you at the hotel for a briefing. We set off along the greenway that will take us to know “la Valleta d’Agres”, a place that will give us a special feeling of tranquility when pedaling between fruit fields at the foot of the Sierra de Mariola. We will pass by two villages with their own character such as Alfafara and Agres. Back in Bocairent we will have the opportunity to walk through its old town with its narrow streets, churches, squares, etc. and take one of the typical dishes of the area offered by its different establishments.
- Day 2: Circular Banyeres de Mariola – Vinalopó river source. 24 km
We begin the adventure on the old railway line towards Banyeres de Mariola.
We will enter the Sierra de Mariola Natural Park until we reach the source of the Vinalopó river, an idyllic place to have our picnic by the river in the Font de la Coveta, with crystal clear water that is considered the source of Vinalopó river. Then we will continue to enjoy the magnificent views, flora and fauna, to return to Bocairent, a beautiful medieval village where we will end the experience or extend the stay.
