This circular itinerary has the incentive to combine open landscape with parts wherever we go in the forest. It is not very long in terms of the distance to go but it is a bit demanding due to the constant ups and downs. The itinerary is designed for those who, apart from cycling, want to discover the environments and the different corners of an area that has left us traces of intense human activity in the past. Activity that we will discover observing the built heritage and the agricultural vegetation of the area. The passage from the sun to the shadow also allows us to contrast past and present, we only need to observe the different elements that along the route configure the landscape.
