Ibai Fradejas proposes a new adventure within the XPLORE EXPERIENCES gravel universe. This time we will pedal through two deserts, Monegros and Bardenas Reales, in a circular circuit starting and finishing from Zaragoza (269 km and 1,200 m).
II Deserts aims to be a bikepacking trip experience, open to everyone, a meeting in which everyone must be responsible for himself and self-sufficient.
The track is designed to be done entirely with gravel bikes. And it is divided into two very rolling stages: Stage 1: Zaragoza- Tudela of 171km and stage 2: Tudela- Zaragoza of 98km.
Exploration and good atmosphere will be the basis. Far from a competitive nuance, the "XPLORE Experiences" seek to be something more, to bring us together, create a bond, community and enjoy the "cycling culture".
