The route we chose today was quite short, with a coffee stop in Castell de Castells it took as 4 hours.

We started in Benissa at around 9 p.m., passing Jalon, Alcalali and Parcent, climbing up the Coll de Rates ( you can take your time for this passage in a specially instaled facility)

From there the street leeds to Tarbena, we have done lots of times the downhill to Callosa d’en Sarria, but today we decided to bike over to Castell de Castells, which is a very picturesque, well asphalted road, with a good mix of ups and downs

From Castell we decided to go back to Benissa, passing Benigembla, Parcent, Alcalali and Jalon once more – if you like to extend the route, go from Benigambla to Murla, Orba, Pedreguer and drive back the N332, you add easy another 1 hour onto!
