If you are a fan of the cycling and gravel, don’t search more. The XPLORE Experiences from Gsport are the adventures you need.
You’ve probably heard of the previous experiences:
- IV LANDS
A gravel route which goes through four provinces.
The assistants had to climb up to 2,000m above sea level, from a ski resort to, after cresting a few kilometers, descend until they found a medieval monastery from the year 1,054.
- II DESERTS
An epic track done by bike that crosses two deserts.
Our liking tied to exploring joined us with Kmoot, this time to the mountain range of Madrid, mainly known as a place to go visit during the weekends or to practice winter sports, but in summer this place shows its other side: a green and spectacular mountainous landscape full of zigzagging and almost empty trails ideal for gravel bikes.
Inspired by this natural landsides and next to our friends from Lighthouse Cycling we’ve decide to organize a trip here, MASSIF CENTRAL under the motto #AquíNoHayPlaya (HereThereIsNoBeach).
It was a great weekend to reload our batteries, we made an advance on the presentation of the Collection XPLORE, where the people was able to see and touch all the news that are close to see light.
During the tracks there was a bit of everything, moments of cycling at a max rate, stops to take pictures of the surroundings, tough uphill sections and crazy downhill moments in perfect shape tracks.
The main objective of MASSIF CENTRAL is to be on top of the bike most of the time during the weekend, but leaving some time to enjoy good food, to get to know the other members of the group and to spend some times and moments with your old friends with a beer.
We won the game of exploring out of our comfort zone, even when the uphill was exaggerated or when the downhill was zigzagging. At the end of the trip we finally found an artificial beach on one side of the lake but it was almost time to go back home, the positive thing is that all of us came home back with a more positive mindset about life.
