Program:

We recommend arriving the day before to have time to know the medieval village of Alquézar, one of you most beautiful villages in Spain.

Stage 1: Alquézar-Nocito

Guara is wild – a rocky mountain range full of hidden gems where time stands still. Our first stage climbs up to the Sierra de Sevil and then goes deep into forgotten valleys connected by ancestral paths.

After pedaling: Relax in the natural pools

Stage 2: Nocito-Bolea

Dolmens, ancient farmhouses, snow wells and wild sierras. Thus can this stage be summarised. Today we will leave behind the Sierra de Guara to approach the Reino de los Mallos. But before we must cross the Gratal & Caballera Sierras, two Pre-Pyrenean mountain ranges separating Hoya de Huesca plains from the Pyrenees. A route with huge panoramic views.

After pedaling: You can visit Castillo de Loarre.

Stage 3:  Bolea-Riglos

Welcome to Reino de los Mallos, the place where the stone giants live. But before entering this kingdom, one must cross through Caballera and Loarre mountain ranges where the stunning Loarre Castle lies, one of Spain’s Romanesque jewels.Today rock verticality and Middle Ages will be your travel partners.

After pedaling: A walk through the picturesque village of Riglos and admire its impressive rock formations.

Stage 4: Riglos-Luesia

Sierra de Santo Domingo is like a thumbnail of the Pyrenees in the Cinco Villas region. Our last stage says goodbye to the Reino de los Mallos, traverses the top of Santo Domingo mountain range and finally descends to Luesia by a net of excellent singletrack in the forest surrounded by amazing rocky landscapes.

After pedaling: you can know the nearby medieval town of Uncastillo; narrow streets, medieval castle, Jewish quarter and important Romanesque churches await you.

    Las rutas que hemos realizado en un marco incomparable para la practica del btt en estado puro. Siendo estas duras y técnicas (lo que cada uno quiera que sean) existen tramos alternativos que las suavizan. Los caminos y senderos muy divertidos nos ofrecen mil y un rincones espectaculares para poder disfrutar. En cuanto a los alojamientos mas que correctos con trato agradable y personal, a destacar el desayuno supercompleto de Alquezar y las cómodas habitaciones de Nocito. También recalcar la logística y asesoramiento por parte de Carlos que nos proporcionó confianza y tranquilidad a lo largo de los días de ruta. 100% recomendable en todos los sentidos si se quiere vivir una experiencia distinta y llena de subidones de adrenalina.

    adelantar los desayunos para empezar antes

    El entorno: naturaleza y tranquilidad. Las rutas, duras y exigentes, eran muy completas, con un buen equilibro entre desnivel positivo y negativo y con alto porcentaje de sendas, para disfrutar al máximo del BTT. Los pueblos donde pernoctamos (Alquezar, Nocito, Bolea y Riglos) son lugares con mucho encanto. La organización fue perfecta, pudiendo despreocuparnos del tema maletas y concertamos los alojamientos en régimen de media pensión, muy recomendable, para no tener que estar pendiente de donde cenar después de andar en bici todo el día. Los desayunos y cenas en los alojamientos muy completos y con calidad (el desayuno en Casa Escaleretas-Riglos, espectacular). Estupendo el resumen de cada etapa de Carlos (unos días en persona y otros por email) para saber cada día que nos esperaba y sobre todo si había posibilidad de comer o reponer agua.

    Los desniveles que aparecen en la página no son reales, sale bastante más cada día. Era complicado desayunar antes de las 8:30, lo conseguimos algún día negociando con el alojamiento, insistiendo mucho. Sobre todo es importante salir pronto en la primera y cuarta etapa, que son las mas largas. El alojamiento en Bolea (Casa Rufino) era muy justo, en las habitaciones no había aire y la ventana era muy pequeña y daba a un patio interior, por lo que no había ninguna corriente, y en el apartamento no funcionaba el aire acondicionado (y era abuhardillado, que retiene el calor) y había 1 baño para 5, que para el tema duchas fue un poco engorroso. En la primera y cuarta etapa estaría bien tener algún track con desvío a alguna fuente (si hubiera), porque aunque lleves agua encima se queda muy sopa.

Tips

  • Prepyr Slow is a 4-stage self-guided MTB route, so a GPS device is needed to follow the track. Please remember to bring an extra battery with you.
  • It’s always advisable to bring the route map&factsheet of every stage with you, and auxiliar cartography as well (digital or printed).
  • In the route planner, main crosses and waypoints considered important are marked. If during the tour you find diversions not described in the route planner, you must follow the main road/path without deviating. Keep in mind the eventuality of small discrepancies between route planner distances and those measured by your own odometer.
  • It’s essential to book your trip or accomodation in advance to ensure its availability. The staging points are small villages with few services, so prior appointment is a must.
  • The tour philosophy is to maximize the singletracks percentage, but most of them have an alternative by easier paved or unpaved roads. In order to avoid them, you’ll have to study the cartography in detail before taking a decision. There are also some GPS variants in the download section.
  • Please, start the stages early to avoid unexpected delays due to losses or breakdowns. Each stage can easily take between 6 and 8 hours of pedalling.
  • During each stage bikers must be food&drink self-reliant. The route passes by villages that sometimes have a bar, but is advisable to always bring enough food and water just in case.
  • Doble suspension or trail bikes are very recommendable in this tour, because all stages have a high percentage of singletracks, most of them rocky. Some singletracks have difficult sections, don’t risk unnecessarily if you’re not confident about them. The goal is to reach your destination.
  • In some singletrack climb sections you’ll maybe need to hike-a-bike, but they’ll never be longer than 10 minutes.
  • Helmet is compulsory for all bikers. We encourage yo to bring knee&elbow protections for singletrack descents.
  • An accident/travel insurance (like cyclist federative insurances) is always recommendable.
  • Many places in the route don’t have internet or telephone coverage. Nevertheless, don’t forget to bring your mobile phone with full battery and to inform about your planed route to the accomodation where you are expected to arrive. Remember: 112 is the emergency number in Spain.
