Ibai Fradejas offers us a new adventure inside the Gravel XPLORE EXPERIENCES universe. In this case we will cycle through two deserts, Monegros y Bardenas Reales, in a circular circuit with departure and arrival from Zaragoza (269 Km and 1.200 m).
II Deserts aims to be a journey of bikepacking, open to everyone, a meeting in which each one must be responsible for himself and self-sufficient.
The track is designed to be done mostly with gravel bikes. And it’s divided in two stages: the 1st stage: Zaragoza – Tudela 171 km and the 2nd stage: Tudela – Zaragoza 98km. The exploring and the good vibes will be the base. Far away from a competitive aspect, the XPLORE EXPERIENCES look to be something more, they look to make a bigger community, to unite people and to enjoy the cycling culture.
