The small "Titan Desert" of the Bardena
198 kilometers to "process"
Tracks at the foot of El Rallón in Bardena Blanca - Stage B
Better not forget that we are in an "almost desert"

SUPER-BARDENA PUNTO BIKE is a "Challenge" proposal. Our small "Titan Desert" self-guided and presented with the double objective of offering this challenge on the one hand, and the opportunity to "synthesize" in a very intense weekend a very large section of the Bardenas geography on the other. Not in vain the 198 kilometers of the track will be distributed among all the existing Bardenas, black and white, Aragonese and Navarre.

Looking at the measures it may seem that we exaggerate, but better be cautious, we remember that the EXTREME BARDENAS, the cycle touring event that is held every year in this territory is usually around 90 - 100 kilometers, and is a one-day test and with refreshments distributed along the route. In SUPER-BARDENA PUNTO BIKE you are alone, the supplies, even water are practically nil, since the possible water points that are limited to the existing bar in Sancho Abarca in stage A and to the services of the Aguilares Interpretation Center in B, they may be closed depending on the season and / or time. Thus, we must be absolutely self-sufficient in terms of food and water. If the weather is cool, the thing still flows. If it's hot, the challenge amplifies exponentially. A scout cap that protects our neck from the sun placed under the helmet will be of great help, and a loose white long sleeve is perhaps a better choice than a conventional jersey.

We also add here that in the MTB option a few kilometers corresponding to the Bardena Aragonesa pass through sections of "singletracks" that considerably slow down the average speed, but that contribute such value to the set that make it one of the best track options that we can imagine for this challenge in the Bardenas.

In the surroundings of Cabanillas more than in "La Negra" it will seem to us to be in the Bardena Orange.

  • Best time to go: The route can be done at any time of the year.

  • Ideal bike: Any Mountain, Trek or Gravel bike.
