Territorio Sierra Norte Bike Challenge 2021
In the Sierra Norte of Madrid there are more and more bikes... and fewer cars. It may be that a large part of the cyclists have been slow to take a look at the Sierra Norte, but it has only been necessary to create several routes aimed at different cycling modalities and the specialization of several establishments that facilitate their activity so that cyclists see in the Sierra Norte an ideal territory. The Sierra Norte of Madrid offers fans of road cycling a multitude of mountain passes and roads with little traffic, dirt tracks and paths that lead through forests and meadows to ropes and hills to enjoy the MTB, and of no, tracks and roads that combined with local roads with little traffic delight gravel lovers.
novelty: 3 different tests
As well as the fans have been increasing in number, so have bicycle-related sporting events in the Sierra Norte. But of all of them there is a special event, the great cycling challenge of the Sierra Norte and certainly of the downtown area, an event that has gone more and more and that this year grows to accommodate more competitions, resulting in Territorio Sierra Norte Bike Challenge. You can see more information here.
The proposal includes a weekend around the bicycle in the Sierra Norte with epicenter in Rascafría. The traditional one is maintained SNBC Non Stop, the genesis of the project that celebrates its 6th edition, with a total of 210 Approximately km and that will return to be Ultramarathon Championship of the Community of Madrid. More than 200 miles of defiance against oneself, of fun in each pedal stroke and of companionship encouraging in each climb. This test is carried out in the itinerary marked CiclaMadrid MTB Tour a proposal to know the most emblematic places of the Sierra norte de Madrid on the back of an MTB, and that offers us nature, towns and adventure. So any MTB aficionado has, throughout the year, the opportunity to tour this cycling ring and know a territory that we assure you will make you return to know more routes.
As a new, in 2021 will be organized for the first time three new tests, SNBC Gravel, a non-competitive march of 101 km, with the possibility of being shortened to 65 km. For families and the general public it is created SNBC Family, a promotional march of the bicycle of 20 km that takes place by the Valley of Lozoya. And finally it will take place SNBC Marathon, a competitive MTB test of 65 km and 1.600 meters of positive slope that goes into the heart of the Sierra Norte of Madrid.
