Climb Description

El Garbí is a hugely popular cycling climb in the Sierra Calderona Natural Park. It is the nearest significant climb to the city of Valencia (less than 40km from the center) and several hundred riders climb it each week. There are several other nice climbs in the area which makes it a good option to include as part of a longer route.

The climb via Segart is a brutally tough ascent and even strong cyclists will find it hard going. The first part, from the junction with the motorway until the village of Segart, is gentle and easy - lulling you into a false sense of security. From Segart the real climb begins, with 3km average over 13%. There are long stretches here above 20% with very little chance to recover between them. Once you reach the small church at the La Malla hamlet the tough bit is nearly over, with just one final sting in the tail - a 14% ramp in the final 200m.

El Garbí is open and is enjoyable to climb throughout the year.
