The route takes off from Ainsa, national cathedral of the Enduro and one of the seven most beautiful villages in Spain. From this gorgeous surrounding we will ride north down paths and trails that will first take us to the Pueyo of Araguás y Laspuña, always under the attentive look of Peña Montañesa to our right. In Lafortunada we will enjoy a beautiful trail to prepare ourselves for the day’s climb up a pretty secondary road that will take us to the Tella dolmen. At that point we will start a heart-stopping descent down the cinca/de Tella Channel and we will finish off the stage with a wonderful downhill trail to Bielsa.
The third stage of the route will take us to discover Monte Perdido (Lost Mountain) on its lesser-known side. We will start the route northwards down a road that will take us alongside the Cinca River. Once we reach Espierba we will leave the road and take a trail that will take us to the top of the mountain. There we will enjoy the views from the Pineta Circus and Monte Perdido. Here we will have to carry our bikes for a few meters, since we will be switching to another valley in order to ride down the Petramula Cliff. The summit of the route will be just ahead of us; from there we will ride up to the Liena Mines down a spectacular trail. Once we reach the top, at 2,550 meter altitude, we will turn around and ride down towards Chisagües down a track that will leave us in Parzán.
At this stage the route will take us to the beautiful spot of the Bordas de Viadós. We will start riding north down the road, then turn right on a track past the village of Parzán. We will now face the hardest climb of the day, as we will be riding up the 2,370 meters of the Ibón de Urdiceto. Once there we will enjoy a technical and fun descent that will take us to the Gistaín Hospital, from where we will take off again towards Plan riding alongside the Cinqueta River.
The final stage of the route loses height to take us back to Aínsa and, of course, arrive at the village down two trails that are quite well known in the area. We will start the route riding South and bordering the Plandescún Reservoir, where we will be able to enjoy super fun trail stretches. The arrival to Saravillo will mark the first important climb of the day. Once we reach the top and ride down towards Gistaín, where we will cross the Irués River, the second climb of the day will begin. This track will bring us very close to Peña Montañesa, the true icon of the area and the start of many of the most famous trails in Zona Zero. Riding down the mythical Maxiavalanche we will reach the Cresta del Cuervo and end our route in one of the prettiest paths you can ride in our country.
