Climb Description

El Revolcat from Benilloba is a fairly gentle climb and an enjoyable one to ride. It climbs up from the village of Benilloba through olive fields and cherry trees, with great scenery looking back towards Aitana and the mountains of the Costa Blanca.

It is commonly used as a link climb in professional races like the Vuelta a España and the Volta a Communidad Valenciana. We recommend you do the same - incorporating into a longer route which inlcudes climbs either around the coast, or around the city of Alcoy.

El Revolcat is open throughout the whole year.
