Gravel Route

Penedès 360 - The Original

From immemorial times humans have felt the need to discover what surrounds us, to travel, to try, to see new spaces, to have new experiences. This is the Penedès 360: a route through the territory that will approach you to unknown environments, unsuspected paths. The proposal sews the territory, from here the zigzags that you will find there, from the east to the most western part, passing by the plain of the Penedès. The idea is to cycle through the villages, the scattered, the wineries, the hermitages on the roads, quiet roads, tracks that will take you to charming vineyards, with Montserrat framing them as ubiquitous scenery.

There are no technical difficulties and the route is one hundred percent cycleable, however we recommend that you take it as a small trip that must be savoured, stopping to look at the popular architecture that you will find, to retain the different tones of green, or ocher, depending on the time of year. In addition, you will find additional routes that will take you to a winery, a castle, a viewpoint ... Take advantage of them!

The route is designed to do with a gravel bike or similar and, of course, also a mountain e-bike is a good choice. The route has no technical difficulties: there are many sections of paved rural road and taxiway, although there are some more broken road links.

Remember that throughout the itinerary you will find accommodation of all kinds, adapted to your needs, which will help you to make the route in stages, which you must design according to your abilities and interests.

Recommended good practices:

1.
Get to know the natural habitat
Before you arrive, check out the natural sights, restrictions, itineraries, etc.
2.
Be properly equipped
Wear good shoes, comfortable clothing and discrete colours. Binoculars, a map, GPS and a field guide are all very useful.
3.
Make sure you're in good company
A good guide can help you enjoy a safe, unforgettable experience.
4.
Show respect
Silence is a great ally. Respect the rules for protected natural areas; don't disturb the wildlife or remove any flowers or rocks.
5.
Consume local products
Look for locally-produced goods (food and crafts).
6.
Choose certified firms
Use accommodation with an Environmental Quality Seal or certified by the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism.
7.
Move around without leaving a footprint
Whenever you can, choose public or shared transport.
8.
Make use of the visitor centres
Many protected natural areas have visitor centres with information on activities, guides and routes.
9.
Take your rubbish with you
Take away all your rubbish and find out about any non-profit organisations helping to conserve the natural area you've visited.
10.
Help conservation
Ask guides or visitor centres about any projects or non-profit organisations helping to conserve the natural area.
