Espana Ebike Experience
The most beautiful adventures are the ones that are taking you to places that you have never taught visiting.
We invite you on a fascinating journey. For one week we will explore on electric bikes, places full of history and beautiful landscapes.
Ponferrada - The castle of the Templar knights
Price 990 euro/person
Price for partner 700 euro/pers
The partner will not take part to riding activities, but there is a lot of things to do and visit. We also have a plan for guests that do not want to ride the bike.
Day 1 – Madrid
We meet in Madrid, the Spanish capital. On the afternoon we will have a transfer by train to Ponferrada (El Bierzo region)
Day 2 – Ponferrada – The castle of the Templar knights
Known for his Templar past, Ponferrada hosts the largest castle that belonged to this order, in Spain. Today’s route will simply surprise you, because 60 km of singletrail with a lot of flow, of the total 70 km of the day cannot be done in many parts of the world. Ponferrada is an area with a lot of tradition in this area, hosting the 2014 World Cycling Championship and with a tradition regarding Mountain Biking that originated from the beginning of this sport in the 90’s. This fact has led to hundreds of kilometers of routes built by involving local riders.
Day3 – Route to the valley of Silence
From Ponferrada, on roads and paths, we will climb to Peñalba de Santiago, chosen as one of the most beautiful villages in Spain and the capital “La Tebaida Berciana” where we will enjoy privileged views towards the Valea Tăcerii, crowned by peaks over 2100 m. height. We will ascend to 1500 m in height, crossing the Aquilian mountains to reach Montes de Valdueza, another fascinating city located at 1000 m in height. From here we will enter a Roman channel that will take us back to Ponferrada, through places of story and epic descents.
Day 4 – Ancares: The Celtic Kingdom
A 60 km transfer by car will leave us in Ancares Leoneses, an extremely mountainous area, established as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2006 and where we will spend two days exploring this land far removed from civilization, which still holds traces of its Celtic past. .
Day 5 – Asturias: the natural paradise
Aided by the capacity of our electric bicycles, we will follow old routes used by merchants transporting goods from the Cantabrian Sea. The beeswax used to make the candles was one of the main commodities. Today we will arrive in Asturias, one of the most beautiful regions of Spain and we will have the chance, in case of clear sky, to admire the Cantabrian Sea from 2000 meters altitude.
Day 6 – Las Medulas: the power of the Roman Empire
For the last day, we reserved a visit to the area called Las Médulas, known as the largest gold mine in Antiquity and listed in the World Heritage Site since 1996. Undoubtedly, one of the greatest examples of Roman engineering power, that could change the orography of a large area, using the power of water brought through a network of channels over 650 km which represents the largest hydraulic work in ancient times.
Day 7 – Transfer to Madrid
We will leave from Ponferrada to Madrid by train or bus. If you wish, you can stay for several days to visit the capital of Spain. Madrid is certainly a charming, historically charged place.
We will have ebikes for rent at our disposal.
