Cycling is a sport with many followers and supporters worldwide. Road, mountain and city bikes are gaining popularity, not only because they help keep users fit and healthy, but also because it is an economical, environmentally-friendly way of getting round that improves mobility in large cities where there are often traffic jams and it is becoming increasingly difficult to park a car.

What is the Eurovelo network?
EuroVelo is a network of 16 long distance cycle routes connecting and uniting the whole European continent. The routes can be used by cycle tourists as well as by local people making daily journeys. EuroVelo envisages that the network will be substantially complete by 2020.

A calm, peaceful ride to Jérica, a hidden gem not only in terms of its cultural and natural heritage but also for the friendly locals.
To enjoy this route in an unhurried way, feeling all the sensations nature gives you, it's best to do it in stages and over more than one day. And if you're on an e-bike it's even better, as you get a bit of help when you need it to get up the hills without breaking out in a sweat.
An extensive network of trails makes for a great cycling route in the heart of the Alto Palancia region.
On Wednesday, as part of our research trips, exploring new paths and discovering little known locations, we went to take a look at Los Albares. This is complex jumble of hills that aren't excessively high or difficult to climb and where there's a mix of Mediterranean forest, managed pine forests and farmland.
