Bike lovers are lucky since Andorra offers many possibilities for cycling.
The country has a good number of cycle routes (ideal to enjoy the road bike), places where to practice the BTT and without forgetting the proposals for electric bikes which this year have entered with force. In addition, you can attend a lot of competitions and events throughout the summer, such as the Purito Andorra cycling tour.
Do not miss the Purito Andorra 2019
Highly expected and international in scope, as it welcomes participants from 16 countries. It has 3 options of 145 km, 80 km and 28 km, with 5,200 m, 3,500 m and 1,700 meters of positive unevenness respectively. The 3 distances will leave from Sant Julià de Lòria and arrive at Els Cortals de Encamp on Sunday, August the 4th at 8 o’clock in the morning. The 3 routes will pass through three important ports that are familiar to tests such as La Vuelta: the Coll de la Gallina, the Rabassa or Alt de la Comella (however, the third has a route with fewer ports). To participate, you must be over 18 years old, although in the shortest route you can take part after 13 years old. Each year a different cyclist is honored and this is one the turn of Perico Delgado winner of a Tour de France and 2 editions of La Vuelta a España.
This edition, the fifth one, is very special and we want to reward runners who have participated in all the marches with a special mallot and if they are also finishers they will be received on arrival with a corridor.
In order to round off this total bike weekend, on Saturday the Purito Kids will be held in its 3rd edition, in Encamp and the Bicycle Fair in Sant Julià.
