Calpe Cycling Cols

Puerto de Carrasqueta* · (Level 2)

The Puerto de Carrasqueta (North) can be accessed from the A7 (Km 453) and climbs into the Sierra del Carrasqueta.

It climbs 233m over 5.6 km giving an average gradient of 4% and a maximum of 8%.

Climbing on the northern side, through lush countryside, provides some respite from the sun. On reaching the summit spectacular views open out across Alicante and Santa Pola.  However, perhaps the best part is the descent on the south side.  The gradient makes for an exhilarating ride without any technical sections to slow the descent.

This climb featured in the Vuelta a España 2009 (Stage 7) and is included in our Bike Camp Calpe.
