Climb like if you were in the Pyrenees, only 1 hour away from Barcelona!
The Montseny national park is a mountain range west of the coastal hills north of Barcelona.
We will meet at hour headquarters in Barcelona, and our support van will take us to Sant Celoni, in the valley of the Tordera river. After a small flat section, we will start gently climbing towards Collfornic, the first hill of the day. A quiet road surrounded by trees and with views of the 4 big massifs of the natural park.
After summiting, we will tackle de descent and take a small break in Viladrau, one of the most picturesque towns in the region.
We will start climbing again towards Turó de L´home, the highest peak of the region, where you will have splendid views of the whole valley. If you are keen, we could ride up the final 4km section (quite steep one!) to the summit of Turó de L´Home.
