The southern half of the route FUENTES del VINO

3 exceptional days of cycling between vineyards and mountains. Vineyards of La Rioja, Montaña Alavesa and Sierra de Cameros.

This course develops halfway between the cliffs of the Sierra de Cantabria to the North and forests and meadows of the Iberian system in the South. In the Middle; La Rioja, endless vineyards, modern wineries, historic towns full of history and traditional architecture and the Ebro River, the old "Iber" of the Romans who gave name to the Iberian peninsula.
