CYCLOPEA 500 ROADBOOK
( in preparation)
ORIENTATION ASPHALT ROUTE
CYCLOPEA 500 Roadbook is an appointment for lovers of road books and motorbike driving through dreamy landscapes. The regions of LA SERENA and LA SIBERIA (candidate for Biosphere Reserve ) will be the settings for this ON ROAD navigation challenge, two regions that hide true cultural and landscape treasures to discover on your motorcycle.
We have made a selection of 500 kilometers of regional and secondary roads that cross the very heart of the two regions. Areas of great contrast and very characteristic landscapes: from the dog's teeth of the La Serena steppe to the pine, holm oak and cork oak forests of La Siberia, which provide important landscape changes: steppes, pastures, Mediterranean mountains, large sheets of water … Contrast of colors and varied modeling according to the different soil substrate (slates, granites, quartzites, etc.), and all this around a territory whose protagonist is the water of the five great reservoirs: La Serena and Zújar on the river Zújar, Orellana, García de Sola (Puerto Peña) and Cíjara on the Guadiana River.
Along with this topographic roadbook, there will be another cultural roadbook (or guide) that will provide each rider with all the necessary and important information about both regions: history, architecture, gastronomy, accommodation, restaurants, routes and interesting areas to ride a motorcycle, etc. A complete guide so that all Cyclopea500 pilots returning to La Serena and La Siberia in the future will know how to get the most out of their visit.
If you are able to successfully complete the entire route, you will be entitled to the CYCLOPEA500 Roadbook commemorative trophy, and for this you must deliver your route card with all the pass controls stamped.
A perfectly equipped camping area will be set up with shaded areas, showers and toilets and a kiosk-bar in a closed and guarded area.
