“Red, rosé or white?”

This trip around La Rioja combines the best the region has to offer: perfect gravel trails, tapas, famous gastronomy, high mountain and the world’s best wine (if you ask the locals).

La Rioja, a small region huddled around the Ebro river valley in northern Spain, is famous for the quality of its wines, the large amount of cultural attractions and its impressive landscapes combining large vineyards, beautiful villages and an outstanding nature.

Our route, divided into three stages, will run from Logroño, the capital, to Ezcaray (a small town in an absolutely stunning location) through ochre-colored vineyards, walled medieval villages (some of them declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO) and high-mountain areas.

We’ll ride 210 kilometres and climb 3.925 meters.

We will also enjoy quality accommodations, excellent foods and of course remarkable wines: the perfect complement for a unique cycling experience.

DAY 01 – STAGE 01

LOGROÑO-EZCARAY – 70 km | 1.693 m

The first stage of our journey, from Logroño to Ezcaray, has a special flavour: for most of the way it follows the world-famous Camino de Santiago (Saint James Way)—we needed only follow the ‘scallop’ signs that mark the route (and dodge the groups of peregrinos trudging along with huge backpacks towards the cathedral of Santiago).

Once we deviate from the Camino de Santiago route, our track starts winding through vineyards that grow all along the Ebro river valley, gradually gaining some altitude as we approach the mountains of Ezcaray.

A couple of extra stops to visit old monasteries and feed on tortilla de patatas and we can start noticing the changes on the landscape. Soon we climbed our first real pass. This is where winding gravel singletracks and amazing food await us.

DAY 02 – STAGE 02

SIERRA DE LA DEMANDA – 62 km | 1.638 m

If the first day is a Waltz, the second day is Rock ‘n’ Roll: a pure mountain stage. A long and slow climb is waiting for us just at the start of the day, gradually leading us to the top of the Sierra de la Demanda range. We will navigate among white carpets of humid clouds from 1,200 meters all the way to the top of the 2,000 meters climb.

Then we are going to face a long and enjoyable downhill through pathways and dirty roads all the way down to Ezcaray. The evening is Ezcaray promises to be magical.

DAY 03 – STAGE 03

EZCARAY-LOGROÑO – 78 km | 593 m

The third and last stage is the recovery stage (from the riding, not the wine we hope). We´ll pedal the Via Verde (a repurposed old railway track) that winds up through the dry, yellow fields on the plains, and meanders through the Ebro river valley.

The Ebro is the river that makes the magic happen. Lots of meteorological conditions are needed to have the perfect climate for grapes and wine, and the Ebro provides exactly the right mix.

We´ll visit some of the most beautiful villages, such as Santo Domingo de la Calzada, Cenicero and Elciego before finally returning to Logroño.
