.

This route takes place between the cliffs of the Sierra de Cantabria and Montaña Alavesa in the North and the pine groves and forests of the Sierras de Cameros and La Demanda in the South.

In the middle; The Rioja. Infinite vineyards, designer wineries, monumental villas saturated with history and the backbone of the Ebro in the center feeding everything.

The road bike proposals go up the slopes of the mountains that surround La Rioja, ascending some of the most emblematic and hardest mountain passes in the region such as Moncalvillo and Herrera.

The options for trekking or gravel bikes articulate most of their kilometers along the small roads, tracks and paths, expanding like a mesh throughout the Ebro basin.
The route can be summarized as an uninterrupted sequence of villas, wineries, vineyards and meanders that claim all of them and at all times their indisputable uniqueness.

PLUS Option: Logroño - Logroño

The territory of our stage A has come to be known literarily as Riberia, an imaginary but real "country", half Navarre and half Rioja, with a common culture and lifestyles arising from the vital potential that the Ebro River emanates and that forms and gives its own character to the life of its banks.
In the sporting aspect, a rolling stage with short ascents - never important - that will activate our legs just enough to face the slopes of the coming stages.

In the vicinity of Logroño the Ebro is already a lonely river.

riberia-Sartaguda riberia-rio-Ebro

At the same time that it divides the geography giving rise to Navarra and La Rioja, the Ebro unifies it and thus the imaginary Riberia arises.

PLUS Option: Logroño - Laguardia

With Clavijo Mountain pass to "warm up" and the 1,475 meters of altitude of Moncalvillo (948 unevenness) to "finish off", this stage B is without a doubt the Queen stage of FUENTES del VINO - RIOJA.
After the long descent to the lowest point of the stage on the bridge over the Ebro in Lapuebla de Labarca, we must still have saved some energy to ascend to the end of the stage at the top where the walled town of Laguardia sits majestically.

Distance: 82 km   Unevenness: 1.285 m


PLUS Option: Laguardia - Logroño
Distance: 158 km   Unevenness: 2.445 m

Stage with a differentiated personality due to the character that permeates the Montaña Alavesa. Once we have passed the demanding mountain pass of Herrera we enter a different world in which we substitute vineyards for beech and oak groves.
Having started the stage in Rioja Alavesa, a good part of its kilometers pass through the neighboring Community of Navarra, and when we reach the end of the stage in Logroño, we will be in the capital of La Rioja. Thus, we will visit 3 Autonomous Communities in which we will have distributed the 82 kilometers of route.

  • Best time to go: The route can be done at any time of the year as long as there is no snow, something unusual in La Rioja.
       Spring and Autumn are usually the most pleasant seasons; in Summer it can be very hot and we must take more precautions.

       However, if you want more hardness, all stages have their PLUS option.
  • Provisioning: La Rioja is not a desert. We will find towns with water and other services without too many difficulties.
