About the Event
We are delighted to promote our 'Magnificent 7' one day ride. We'll have the Siempre Skoda on the route from which we will be able to provide support including nutrition.
The Magnificent 7 is our epic tried and tested one day ride which takes in seven of the most challenging climbs in the Northern Costa Blanca. It's 165km with 3,500 metres of climbing. It includes two climbs over 1,000 metres (Port de Benifallim and Port de Tudons) as well as the ascent of the Coll de Rates used in the 2016 Vuelta a España.
Included in the ride:
Support from car at strategic points along the route
GPX file of route
Unlimited water from car
Energy gels and bars, plus cakes and bananas from car
Space in car for one small bag (left at your own risk)
Spare wheels from car if required (Shimano 11 speed)
The support car will be located at strategic points along the route, to keep you fuelled for the ride. We are planning on riding the route with one lunch stop (not included in price) in Torremanzanas. The average speed of the main group is expected to be around 22kmph. If you ride more than 10% outside of this we cannot guarantee support from car. Therefore we ask that you only sign up if you are confident you can complete the ride at this pace. We would also ask you to load the GPX route on to your device before the ride. Places will be strictly limited to 10 riders.
At 21km Castells-Facheca 10km 3% 769m
At 58km Port de Benifallim 5km 6% 1,010m
At 67km Port de El Collao 2km 6% 890m
At 78km Port de Tudons (from Relleu) 14km 4% 1025m
At 101km Port de Confrides 5km 5% 962m
