Climb Description

Vall de Gallinera is a very long and very gentle cycling climb in the north of the Alicante province. It is the gateway to many other excellent climbs and is a popular route with both local and professional riders.

It passes through several small villages of the Gallinera valley, which is home to large amounts of cherry, orange and almond trees, making for some picturesque and fragrant riding, depending on the season that you visit.

The climb is open throughout the year.




Roads & Traffic

The road surface is in good condition throughout. The traffic is generally light. It is a bit is busier upon leaving Pego and becomes almost non-existant by the top of the climb.

The other side of the climb is more or less the route to Alto de Margarida.
