Hi explorers!
Let's enjoy the wonderful weather doing a bike route north of Madrid.
The meeting point is in front of the Cercania station in Villalba. The lines Nr 2, 3, 8 and 10 are heading to Villalba. The transport of bikes in the cercanía is free of charge. Please consider that, depending on where you get on the cercanía it maybe a ride of one hour to get to Villalba. Please note we will not be waiting more than 10 minutes in Villalba.
Timetable cercanía Protected content
We are going from Villalba to San Lorenzo de el Escorial, well known for the impressing monastery. As it is a very touristic place we will not have any problems finding a bar or restaurant to relax after the activity.
We will use the cercania in el Escorial to return to Madrid.
On our way we will pass several „dehesas“ which are grazing lands for cattle.
Due to the character of the ways with sand and gravel a mountain bike is strongly recommended. Make sure that you take one liter of water and some snacks with you. The distance is ca 25 km with an accumulated height difference of ca. Protected content , it will take approx. 2,5 hours. Kindly note the organizer is not a professional guide in this type of activity.
