In the heart of Asturias, like an inaccessible wall, rises the Sierra del Aramo, crowned by the two great challenges of current cycling. To the south, the Gamoniteiru, and further north the famous Angliru. Perfect for the fittest cyclists to face them on a weekend staying in the wonderful capital of the Principality of Asturias. An incredible plan to enjoy the most extreme cycling, the pre-Romanesque culture of Oviedo and the most forceful gastronomy of Spain in one weekend.
In the Sierra del Aramo, in the heart of Asturias, stand the two hardest Colossi of Spanish cycling. A challenge only available to the fittest cyclists. Could anyone climb the two colossi in one weekend? Bike Paradise propouses the challenge ...

Day 2 - Oviedo - Angliru
We leave Oviedo on a fairly flat road, which stops at km. 9 face the first climb of the route, the third category Escamplero pass, 1.68 km. at 8.23% average slope. We will continue passing through the towns of Trubia and Tuñón, stopping at km. 27 begin the climb to Alto del Tenebredo, 3.37 km. at 9.55% average slope. Ideal to warm up the legs before the "Colossus". After finishing, we will roll on a road with continuous ups and downs for 9 km. to the small town of Cardeo and from here we will start 7 km of continuous climb until we reach the recreational area of Viapará. From this point 7 km of what for some is the hardest ascent in world cycling, the Angliru peak. You decide how far you accept the challenge.
Day 3 - Las Caldas - Gamoniteiru
We leave Las Caldas in the direction of Santa Eulalia de Morcín following the first course of the Nalón river and after the Caudal river, we pass through Mieres and follow the Caudal valley to Pola de Lena. Here we begin the ascent of three passes that link with each other with hardly any rest, 20 km. terrible. First El Cordal, 5.41 km. at 8.83% of average slope, to continue with Cuchu Puercu 4.81 km. at 5.34% of average slope and finish with El Gamoniteiru 10 km., 3.61 km. initial 2.6% average slope and 6.32 km. ends at 8.58% average slope.
