The municipality of Orihuela offers endless possibilities for bicycle lovers and now the Department of Tourism has launched a guide showing 15 cycle routes that cover the entire municipality and all different levels and intensities.
The routes have been designed by Cycling Friendly and are intended for professional level cyclists as well as for amateurs and family groups along routes that range from 10 to 90 kilometres and that pass through many different landscapes.
Councillor for Tourism, Sofía Álvarez, was joined by Víctor González, representative of Cycling Friendly, in revealing a new map showing the routes. The routes also have a QR code that provides even greater information and can be downloaded onto a mobile phone.
“This is a commitment to cyclotourism and the improvement of Orihuela as a tourist destination,” said Álvarez. It is a unique map, where each route is very different, but nevertheleass planned with safety in mind. They include many that go through mountain passes, with information on their length, gradient average and location on the map, in addition to the main tourist attractions along each route.
The routes will also be added to the website of Orihuela Turística, where a section of bicycle routes now appears and from which users will be able to download them to their GPS devices, also showing accommodation and cyclist services that are available in the municipality.
