Description

Based in Oviedo, the capital of Asturias, our objective is a sensational climb called “La Cubilla”.  One of the best kept secrets of Spanish cycling, recently discovered by the Vuelta a España organization.

We will enjoy 28 kilometers of continuous and extended climbing, with an average gradient of 4.7%, crowning 1,672 meters of altitude. All this crossing the Natural Park of Las Ubiñas-La Mesa..  A climb worthy of the Tour itself.

The second day will be more relaxing  than the first, ending with another classic climb up the Naranco

Try La Cubilla and enjoy two days of authentic cycling in the capital of Paradise!

La Cubilla is a wonderful climb, a mountain pass worthy of the Tour itself.

In this ride we capture the spirit of one of cyclings classic stages, the Naranco.

The ride sets off from Oviedo and follows the river Nora along gently undulating country roads with little traffic.  To begin with there are two small climbs, El Escamplero, 2 kilometers at 6% average gradient and El Alto de Sograndio, 6 kilometers at 3.5%.

The route descends to San Claudio where the real climb of the day begins, 10 kilometers of the Naranco.

The ascent can be divided into two distinct sections.  The first part up to Ules, 3.5 kilometers at 5,3% average gradient, finishing in a gentle descent which marks the start of the second part of the climb.  This section consists of 4.7 kilometers at 6.3% average gradient.

The road skirts around the pre romanique monuments of the kingdom of Asturias to finish on an unbeatable viewpoint over the city of Oviedo.  From here we can contémplate the Bay of Biscay, the Picos de Europa and the rest of the Cantabrian mountain range.  An extrodinary reward after two days of authentic cycling.

Opinions and comments

With Bike Paradise I have climbed and enjoyed legendary mountain passes that I did not know. They knew how to make the experience easy and pleasant.

François de Malherbe, Bordeaux (France)

Asturias is a region full of incredible places to practice cycling at all levels. Bike Paradise prepared a trip for me that I will never forget.  All this topped off with great regional cuisine....
