Climb Description

Port de Tudons is one of the most popular cycling climbs in the Valencia Community, and is a favoured training ground of professional riders over the winter. It has featured several times in the Vuelta a España, although often quite early in the stage rather than being a decisive climb.

The gradients on all sides of the climb are gentle and consistent, but the length makes it a moderately challenging climb; although one which is best included in a longer route rather than done by itself. The ascent from Alcoleja is short and steady, with a maximum gradient of around 8%; so it should pose no problems to experienced riders. At the top of the climb there is a road to the left which continues climbing to Aitana; however, this is a military base and is very rarely open to the public.

Port de Tudons is open and is enjoyable to climb throughout the year.
