Road bike route between two mountain ranges: Pico del Águila (Olocau) and Oronet (northern slope)

29 June, 2016 by Eva No Comment

This is a really nice road bike route, starting at the city and going up to Sierra Calderona, a green lung near Valencia.


Recommended period: all year round

Difficulty: High

Positive Ascension: 1.367 m

Distance: 118 Km

Return time: 4h 30´ (average of +/- 25 Km/h)



We can start our route from the city of Valencia, or if you prefer we can shorten it leaving from the town of Bétera, village strategically located for exploring the Sierra Calderona making the route shorter. We will look into the heart of Sierra Calderona, passing through the towns of Olocau and Gátova, typical towns of the interior of Valencia and located in the heart of the Sierra, surrounded by Mediterranean forests. We will ride on very quiet roads. Ascension to Eagle peak is long, but the percentage is moderate so it is suitable for any moderately prepared cyclist or to the most tenacious! The Oronet by its northern slope is always a really nice portwith the sea to our left, the contrasts of Blues and Greens are a pleasure for the senses. Once crowned the Oronet, will begin a long descent which will lead us to SerraNáquera and Bétera, optional starting point or continue towards Valencia.
