Path of the Genaro - Cycling
Point of departure:
To be a great travel route, the start we can fix it in any of the villages where it passes.
Cycling version of the Genaro Trail. The route avoids the most technical stretches and travels on local roads and roads, allowing you to know the environment of the El Atazar reservoir and the Jarama vega.
Within the network of green paths of the community of Madrid, "The path of the Genaro" with their 70 kilometres is characterized as representing greater length on its way. It is classified as Gran travel route (GR 300) by the Spanish Mountaineering Federation and until now we had two versions, the hiking version and an almost identical version, but with some modifications to make it by Mountain Bike. Both are signposted.
We now offer you a cycling version of the Genaro, whose layout also runs in the surroundings surrounding the Atazar reservoir, greater capacity within the community of Madrid, but which also includes part of the Vega del Jarama. This new alternative for saddlebags, avoids the most technical stretches of the Genaro, difficult to perform with a hybrid bike or with an MTB with saddlebags and are replaced by road or local roads in good condition to “ciclear” with saddlebags. Sections leaving the original Genaro are not signposted, so we'll have to have a map with the tour or download the track and use a GPS.
This cycle tour adds to Genaro the populations of Torrelaguna (“Villa de Madrid”) and Torremocha del Jarama, so it makes it easier for us to stay overnight in more populations.
