Gijón will host the 8th European Cycle Touring Week

MG 3110 300x200 Gijón will host the 8th European Cycle Touring WeekFrom the 1st to the 8th of July, Gijón will be full of bicycles during the 8th European Cycle Touring Week. This event wants to be a celebration of tourism for Gijón and all the Asturian community.

Through a proposal of routes for road and mountain bikes, each cycle tourist coming from all over Europe will be able to appreciate the attractiveness of the region, cycling at their own pace without worrying about their age or physical condition.

Participants will enjoy a bicycle-friendly city, with paths through the sea walk & with the possibility of riding to the 10 beaches of Gijón. If you prefer rural paths, there are some proposals where you can watch the orchards or visit cider houses, taste the gastronomy or visit historical buildings as the Laboral City of Culture, the biggest monumental building of Spain.

Gijón is also the starting point of other routes to Cabo Peñas, the Cider Shire, to the mining valleys or to do/ride the mythical Angliru climb.

Some excursions are organized for those days: Green way and Picu el Sol trekking, Covadonga and Covadonga lakes, descent on the Sella river canoe, Horse excursion in Cangas de Onís, River Cares Route and La Ñora beach trekking.

We encourage you to discover a region that will surprise you for its scenic beauty, its multicultural art, its great gastronomy and its inhabitants.
