The versatility offered by gravel bikes has made possible to design a route that runs through the most spectacular beaches of the Cabo de Gata – Níjar Natural Park, the semi-arid areas of the interior of Almería, as well as a part of the Tabernas Desert.

The four-stage tour will take you to ride along tracks by the sea, secondary roads with which you will discover unique places, and some bike carrying to get to special places. In the final design we have make two variants in stages 2 and 4, in order to configure the route based on physical level and the time to finish the route for each group.
