At The Southernmost Point Of Europe, Tarifa.
This route has everything we want in 30 kilometers, nice climbs and descents, rough terrain and nature, amazing views across the strait of Gibraltar, silence and high concentration when you cross at full speed a patio or have to escape for the dogs.
Some parts of the trail are old paths constructed by the Romans and you will pass some old military buildings.
El Pelayo is situated between Tarifa and Algeciras (14 km from Tarifa). From El Pelayo start different mtb routes, easy parking and after a scenic route (Food!), we recommend to go for tapas and enjoy the spanish cuisine at Bar Boris. A cozy little bar which serves the tastiest tapas (Grandmother´s recipes) and other local dishes. Very popular among local mountain bikers.
