Alicante - BRM Brevet Randonneur Mondiaux 600 km


May 12 at 5 a.m. to May 13 at 11 p.m.

Alicante's Club Ciclista Alibike has organized the next event in its series of Brevets for May 12 - 13.

Why is it spread over two days, you ask?

Because the route will see the riders take in the considerable distance of 600 km, for which the maximum time allowed under Audax Club Parisien Brevet de Randonneur Mondiaux regulations is 40 hours.

Description of the Route

So, 600 kms and two consecutive days on the bike await the participants.

The first 50 km are the same as those used in the club's previous 200 km Brevet, before the route zig-zags off towards the north side of Tudons, climbs up to Confrides and through Vall de Guadalest before turning east again and heading towards one of Alicante’s most classic climbs: Coll de Rates. 

With the sea by their side, the riders will continue through La Marina Alta as they head towards Cap Sant Antoni and El Montgó.  From Denia, the route climbs up through the beautiful Vall de Gallinera, continuing on to Alcoy and Sierra Mariola. From there, it follows the River Vinalopó and heads across the inland highlands towards Orihuela and the River Segura, crossing the Vega Baja and Camp de Elx region, bordering El Fondó, the salt marshes of Santa Pola, Clot de Galvany and Agua Amarga, where the riders will be greeted by the welcome sight of El Benacantil and Alicante rising on the horizon.
