FAQS

BIKEPACKING, AUTOABASTECIMIENTO Y AVENTURA

La modalidad de bikepacking es un tipo de cicloturismo de larga distancia en BTT o gravel que combina la bicicleta y la acampada. Se busca el contacto con la naturaleza y la aventura. Es una modalidad minimalista que quiere viajar con lo estrictamente justo y necesario.

Al ser de autoabastecimiento, no se podrá recibir ayuda externa y cada participante deberá llevar y gestionar su comida y material, si que está permitido comprar comida y todo lo necesario durante el recorrido.

Una vez inscritos, se puede solicitar a la organización un documento con el kilometraje, el desnivel acumulado y pueblos que iremos encontrando para poderse manejar los descansos. Cuidado porque puede haber pequeños cambios en el kilometraje debido a nevadas o si las autoridades nos obligan a desviarnos. 

4 días antes de la carrera se dará el recorrido en gps más preciso.

WHERE CAN YOU REST?

La organización facilitará un listado con los pueblos y albergues por los que se pasa y con los kilómetros y altimetria acumulados para poder planificar las pernoctaciones. Cuidado porque puede haber pequeños cambios en el kilometraje por tramos nevados. 

THE BICYCLE

Es difícil decir si la mejor bicicleta para realizar el recorrido es una gravel o una BTT, esto es algo muy personal. La filosofía de la carrera al ser de larga distancia es siempre buscar pistas gravel en las que no haya complicaciones técnicas. A lo largo de los años vamos intentando sacar los tramos técnicos y complicados, pero siempre hay alguno inevitable.

Las bicicletas gravel recomendamos unas cubiertas de 40 mm. o más y una transmisión de 34/36 platos x 40/42 piñones.
