posted in: Bikepacking, Route | 0

Searching a microadventure, we planned a three day loop in Monegros.  Monegros is not only a rave techno party in the desert also  it is an amazing place to bikepacking.

We started the loop in Leciñena which is the perfect place to go into the Alcubierre ridge. This entire section is very nice with a typical mountain landscape. We went to San Caprasio to watch hermits caves and admire the views of 360 º. This summit is located between the Pyrenees and the Ebro valley.
