Costa Blanca also popular with mountain bikers
27.6.17, CH: The fact that the Costa Blanca has something more to offer for holidaymakers as the fantastic beaches and the many sundays of the year is proved by the many cultural facilities, the annual calendar of events and the charming cafes and bodegas where it is easy to get tapas or a cup of coffee and let the soul dangle. But also those who are looking for an active holiday are just right on the Costa Blanca. Mountain bikers appreciate the extensive network of tracks along the coastal region and also in the interior, which offers challenges in different degrees of difficulty.
The mountain ranges of the Sierra in the surroundings of Alicante stretches up to 1500 meters. For experienced mountain bikers, who like to take a break and enjoy breathtaking views, just the right thing to do. In addition, there are lower temperatures in the high-altitude air than almost at sea level, so that here the ideal conditions are found to be physically active. The extraordinary natural scenery of the rocky landscape offers a very special environment that can not be found in many parts of the world. Probably a reason why this year also the Trail Camp took place here and many mountain bikers and motocross riders had been attracted.
Nevertheless, you are never far from the city and isolated from modern infrastructure and culinary delights. In the evening, in a bar with other cycling enthusiasts you will be able to share the experiences and stages of the day, or alternatively a siesta or a traditional restaurant where Mediterranean cuisine is served to strengthen the next section of the course. If you have a holiday apartment or a holiday home on the Costa Blanca, you have the sea on one side and the various mountain bike routes to the other side almost in front of your home. This is one reason why many Germans are settling in this region or at least setting up a second home. Here it is easy to combine pleasure, relaxation and sporting activities in different locations.
