FAMILIARIZATION ROUTE PRACTICE DETAILS
Just to get a perfect warm up before your journey conquering the Pyrenees we offer you a smoothly and nice route to ride. From The Race Village at La Massana, we took the road CG-3 to Ordino (remember that traffic rules must be respected).
In Ordino, we advise you to visit the village, known as one of the best and most beautiful villages of Andorra. Leaving Ordino, we are going to take the Ferro route, a smooth and easy cycling route (Please respect the environment, because Ferro route is Andorra’s heritage).
From Sornas, we leave tarmac and we ride through a path that becomes a singletrack, which follows the GR-11, and leads us to discover hidden corners of the Principality and where some surprises await us (works of art, iron mines , Romanesque churches, waterfalls, ..)
Arriving at Llorts, we leave that path and we get a narrow uphill in concrete. That point it’s the farthest one of the route.
We turn right to Serrat Village. The ride the links path, singletrack tarmac until the Sornàs Village, there we continue along the Ral path, leaving vineyards in a fast way parallel to the Valira del Nord river.
Finally, arriving at Massana we cross the CG-3 at Farga Rossell, to reach the Village via wooden walkways to get to the finish line of all Andorra Epic Stages at the Race Village.
