Climb Description

The Coll del Cid from Petrer is a short and irregular climb in the Sierra del Cid mountains of Alicante. The average gradients hide several steep pitches, which make it a deceptively tough little climb.

This is the more scenic side of the climb, with open scenery and pleasant views of the mountains. It is most commonly ridden as a circle with the nearby Xorret de Catí, although it can also be ridden as a standalone ascent.

The poor road surface, particularly in the final kilometre, does make for a slightly bumpy ride on a road bike, but it is all rideable.

The climb to Coll del Cid is open throughout the whole year.
