FUENTES del VINO Aralar - Urbión - Bike Tour

Version 5 DAYS of the route. The more Slow option.

This 5 days proposal we raise here is clearly intended to adapt to those hot days of the year when we all know that at certain times it is better not to be on the road.

The idea is: to get up early, to pedal with the fresh air, to finish the stages when the Sun begins to be a threat, and to have the rest of the day to spend it as we wish. Any ideas? Get into a pool ... stay hydrated on the terrace of a bar ... or look for shady corners among the narrow streets full of history of the places we will stay along the entire route.

Although all the information is written performing the route clockwise, it is perfectly possible to do in the opposite direction without losing an iota of interest. Usually the sense of the route is determined by the need to avoid making night at Laguardia on Friday or Saturday. This is so because of the difficulty of booking accommodation in those days as a result of the tourist pressure supported by the village.
