Details of the mountain bike trip in Minas de León

Travel back in time with the Ruta MTB las Minas through a remote and almost unknown territory where human presence is really testimonial.

A wild and unpopulated landscape where you can get lost and disconnect with mountain biking in León. Cycle through the forgotten and spectacular Montaña Oriental Leonesa and discover railroad stories and old abandoned mines with a glorious past.

All this with Roman roads and archaeological sites of the Iron Age and ancient Cantabrian tribes.
