SPECIAL DATES ON REQUEST FOR GROUPS OF MINIMUM 6 PEOPLE - ASK FOR DATE.
Meeting: We`ll meet at 9:30 am. at the Manzanares train station, where we`ll have a large and free parking lot, to leave our vehicle.
Starting from Manzanares train station, we will ride our bicycles towards Tomás Santa Coloma, the first stop and first town on our route. To get there we`ll cross Provincial Route 6 (always with the necessary precautions to do so safely). Up to here it is 4 km on a dirt road.
We`ll continue our way to the next destination: Etchegoyen Station, and then to Torres. We will take photos in the station and the typical general store. Santa Coloma and Torres are separated by 12 km of rural roads and another 13 km to Carlos Keen.
From Carlos Keen we will ride to Lujan, where we`ll visit its basilica and after the tour and the photos we will start the march to the last town before reaching our destination, we are talking about Open Door.
We will start our return to Manzanares, ending our tour in our vehicle and we`ll enjoy the return home, after a rewarding day of pedaling.
