Trough Sierra Calderona

Posted by admin On Abril - 27 - 2010

IVAN: It must have been 9 am last Saturday, when near Bextí, we caught up with a group of cyclists who had organised a 309 km tour departing from Masamagrell. If we consider the fact that I have never been part of a group (I remind you that we are amateurs), the sensations I felt were fantastic: the speed, you have to see how fast the kilometres passed by, and the magic of being part of that live train with thin wheels and automatic pedals.

Near Altura (Castellón) we had to separate from the group because they started ascending Puerto de Chirivilla. I didn’t have water and I was peeing since we passed by Betxí, so after the compulsory stop we rode our bikes back, this time alone. The loneliness didn’t last long, on the second kilometre of the port climb, we ran into another group departing from the same place, with whom we rode along until Gatova, where the group had organised their first stop to recover strength and nutrients.

Saying that from that moment we were alone would be lying, because despite the fact that we separated from the group, we arrived to Bétera with the impression that every person who had a bike, decided to ride it that morning.

We saw 1,000,000 bikes, without exaggerating!!! hahahahaha, maybe not that many, but believe me, I had never seen so many individual cyclists like that Saturday while crossing la Sierra Calderona.

Finally, coming back through Puig, Puzol, Sagunto, etc, etc. After the training, my meter showed 187 km, and I imagine that  J.L´s exceeded  the 200 km.

I only want to tell you that we recommend all two-wheel lovers to suffer/enjoy the Chirivilla Port on  Sierra Calderona. I leave you with a video of the descent.
