Ruta por los senderos clásicos y más conocidos de Badaia.

(Las líneas negras marcan los tres atajos más evidentes de la ruta)

Salimos de Legarda por el GR25 y afrontamos la primera subida bastante tendida hasta la entrada de Descapuchados. Enlazamos Descapuchados con la Secreta, unos cuantos minutos de diversión máxima. Después afrontamos la segunda subida del día por el barranco de la Oca rodeando el monte Armikelo. Justo en esa zona se puede acumular barro, pero en el resto de la ruta se podrá ciclar bien cualquier día del año. La ultimísima parte de esta segunda ascensión, es un repecho durísimo, empujabike para mortales que no vayan con eléctrica (aún con eléctrica tiene tema). De la cima de Arrato bajamos la Senda De La Muerte, a pesar del nombre es una bajada relativamente fácil. Digo relativamente porque es muy muy rápida, casi sin curvas, y pedregosa. Nos acercamos hasta Apodaka y subiremos a la cima de Amaritu, para la bajada corta, pero pendiente y pedregosa de Niño Jesús. Nos queda otro pequeño trozo de subida para afrontar Geni, rápida y divertida. Con un pequeño ascenso, haremos también Josefe. Ahí nos espera la Cuesta de Abel, que no es larga pero pondrá a prueba nuestras fuerzas restantes. Sin descanso ya, bajaremos la senda del Gas, rápida y muy entretenida y acabaremos remontando muy poquito para poder hacer Mari Pili, un mini circuito de saltos muy divertido.
