Andalusia Brut CTC 2019

Description of the route

The Andalucía "Brut" CTC ride 2019 will take place in the southern región of Spain in September. The word "brut" refers to the fact that the route has not been softened, probably has been toughened by adding two more stages and some iconic climbs.

This route from Vejer de la Frontera to Mojácar shares with its sister,  Andalusía CTC , most of its itinerary, but adds some beautiful and hard sections. We will visit tourist towns like Ronda y Granada, adding an extra stay overnight on the Mediterranean coast in the town of Nerja. Needless to say that we won`t skip the climb to the highest paved road in Europe to the Veleta Peak in Sierra Nevada, and among the aditions to this route we can not forget Peña Escrita with slopes as steep as 27%. Didn't you ask for new challenges?
