Beautiful cycling trip to discover the authentic essence of the Mediterranean by bike.

The first part of the tour passes through the Utiel-Requena region, where you will learn the secrets of the Origin Domination of Utiel Requena, visit wineries and an oil mill to learn more about the culture of the area.

Next, on the way to the Mediterranean Sea, you will pedal between small towns through multiple fruit plantations, among which persimmon, oranges or lemons stand out. You will be able to see the Tous Dam, with one of the most impressive views of the coast.

In a gentle descent between the cradle of the Valencian orange, the end of the bicycle trip will take you, pedaling along the Júcar river, on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea in Cullera. It will be worth the effort to climb the castle, where the views are impressive.

You will arrive in Valencia through the Albufera Natural Park and the best beaches in the south of Valencia. If time permits, you can take a bath on beaches where it is difficult to find someone.
