.

Como su nombre indica FUENTES del VINO GRAVEL es la propuesta de LA RIOJA PUNTO BIKE para recorrer LA RIOJA siguiendo tracks diseñados especificamente para la "nueva" modalidad de ciclismo que se viene denominando comunmente como gravel.
El territorio elegido para la propuesta se reparte de manera bastante uniforme
entre montaña -alta montaña incluso- en unas zonas y viñedos y tierras de cultivo en otras.

El "resumen" de la geografía de la ruta viene a ser el siguiente: Montes de Zenzano y Sierra de Cameros en la 1ª etapa, Sierra de La Demanda en la 2ª, Sierra de La Demanda y Montes Obarenes en la 3ª, Viñedos de la cuenca del Ebro en la 4ª y Sierra de Cantabría, Montaña Alavesa y de nuevo más viñedos del Ebro en la 5ª y última.

Como puede apreciarse en el mapa de la ruta situado a continuación de este texto, 2 de las etapas son circulares, por lo que prescidiendo de alguna de ellas se pueden configurar propuestas de 4 o de 3 etapas.

- Keep in mind -
Puro Gravel

La palábra "Puro" siempre levanta sospechas en quien pretende asignarsela. Si la incluimos aquí, el motivo es simplemente el de llamar la atención y aclarar -para que no haya equivocos- el criterio que nosotros hemos empleado a la hora de diseñar nuestros tracks de gravel.

Hemos huido de la idea de gravel = a pistas. Si el objetivo fuese realizar rutas exclusivamente de pistas -incluyendo en el término los caminos fáciles- creemos que es más comodo, divertido y funcional el uso de las bicicletas de trekking de toda la vida, o inclusive las de MTB Trail ligeras si quisiesemos imprimir un carácter más deportivo a la ruta.
Nuestras propuestas de Puro Gravel no evitan las carreteras, máxime si estas son tranquilas y de poco tráfico. Nuestro objetivo es combinarlas, de la mejor manera posible, con secciones de pistas y caminos -habitualmente de fácil transitar- y generar tracks ineditos y por así decirlo "no aptos" para otro tipo de bicicletas con la cuales resultaría pesado y poco efectivo pedalear siguiendo dichos tracks.

En resumen; en nuestro concepto Puro Gravel prima lo deportivo sobre lo turístico, saltamos sin previo aviso de pistas a carreteras y viceversa sin que en ningún momento creamos que ello altera el carácter de la ruta.

Si buscas rutas que prioricen las pistas y eviten al máximo las carreteras buscalas en nuestra sección de CICLOTURISMO TREK BIKE.

Below we show our usual selection of accommodations for FUENTES del VINO GRAVEL. However, since in LA RIOJA the hotel reservations are usually complicated at certain times of the year - especially during the harvest - the Pack proposal that we finally offer may differ from the one presented here.

"Booking in advance is in this case something more than a commercial trick, it makes the difference between being able or not being able to do the route."

Lodging for stages with start in Albelda de Iregua La Casa del Cofrade

Our PUNTO BIKE in Albelda de Iregua is - we dare to affirm it - a four star hotel "camouflaged" in one of two. Located in the same place as the Vinícola Real Wineries to which it belongs, it allows us access from its facilities to the calados -caves- dug in the rock of the mountain on which it is attached, and in which the renowned wines of 200 Monges as well as other elements of historical value that will make us immediately perceive that we are in a special place. Something more even than a Winery + a Hotel.

If to all this we add the link and the total dump with everything that sounds like cycling, the choice could not be more obvious. Sports activity here becomes almost an excuse to live this part of the global experience of FUENTES del VINO.
