The Green Track Program

Posted by admin On Enero - 31 - 2010

Due to ourtrainings and the need to cover many kilometres in our tandem bikes, we are discovering true gems of our Spanish geography.

Many of these gems are provided by the Green Track Program. And since Internet is about sharing knowledge and information, today we are going to talk about this program.

What are the green tracks? Many bicycle and outdoor sports lovers have probably already heard about them: they are 1,700 km of out-of-use railway infrastructures transformed into cycle-tourism and trekking routes in collaboration with the Spanish Railway Foundation (FFE-Fundación de Ferrocarriles Españoles). Thanks to this program, a valuable cultural and historical patrimony has been rescued from oblivion to be used again by all of us, and without age or physical limitations.

In our trainings, we try to incorporate some kilometres fromthese green tracks to enjoy the wonderful views. These pleasant trips are alternated with ascensions to mountain ports with much more demanding edges and irregularities. At the end, everything favours our physical preparation!

Moreover, something very interesting is that the FFE offers the possibility of collecting stamps when going through any of the green routes in order to complete the GreenTracks Passport. We have already done some of them, specifically the Green Tracks of Bajo Ebro and Tierras Altas (as you have seen in our blog) and the Green Track of Ojos Negros where, like we commented on the previous post, we ran 8 km. We will write a post about this last one including pictures of when we did it with or bicycles, you know, to continue sharing experiences ;)

We leave you with a video of the Vasco-Navarro Green Track:

Greetings from the tandem!
