The track begins in Arguineguín next to a gas station. Here we recommend you buy water and food, since you will not find any other point where to buy (although the route is not excessively long). The route ascends for about 11km on simple dirt tracks, which makes it very comfortable. Once we start the descent through stony and arid paths, we will enjoy some good technical ups and downs.
At the end of the first descent, we find ourselves at the bottom of a ravine. To get out of here you will have to carry the bike on your shoulder along some steep stones, where we will even find ropes to help us climb. This part is difficult for electric bikes because of its greater weight, but the rest of the route is ideal for its many technical climbs in which you will enjoy a lot with eBikes.
You must bear in mind that the terrain is quite hard for bicycles. Along the way there are loose stones that can hit the bike when we go down. The same stones can easily crack the tires if you do not have reinforced Enduro tires.
The descent of the route is improving at times, very fun. Although it is true that if you want to enjoy it to the fullest, it is interesting to maintain a good speed. There is a technical zone for the bravest, but don’t worry, you can see it coming clearly and we recommend that if it is the first time you pass, you first see it walking to choose the line well.
