Aragon‘s remarkable geographic diversity, characterized by a wide variety of landscapes, an extensive network of secondary roads, and a favorable climate, makes it a unique region for practicing both mountain biking and road cycling.

The region boasts eight mountain biking centers, each offering a multitude of marked trails designed to cater to riders of varying experience levels, from beginners to families and friends to enthusiasts. These trails encompass a range of styles, including fantastic downhill, enduro, and cross-country routes. Aragon is also renowned among mountain bikers for hosting several internationally recognized events, such as the Quebrantahuesos, the Orbea Monegros, the BTT Trans Highlands, the Trans-Nomad, the Calcenada, the Vuelta al Moncayo GR 260, and the TowCar Puertos Ribagorza.
Furthermore, Aragon offers an array of outstanding road cycling routes, such as the Trans-Pyrenees and the Ebro Nature Trail, as well as ‘vías verdes’ or greenways, including the iconic Val de Zafán route that culminates at the Mediterranean Sea and the Ojos Negros route, recognized as Spain’s longest. Presently, Aragon is actively involved in creating an ‘Iberian’ Eurovelo route that spans from Lisbon to Toulouse, passing through Aragonese territory from south to north. Additionally, the region is developing extensive bicycle routes utilizing old railway lines in the province of Teruel to connect the greenways with the Eurovelo 8 ‘Mediterranean’ route.”
