The Southern Hills of Jaca

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A classic Spanish country side ride. Rolling hills, wheat fields, small roads, and quaint towns!

The town of Jaca gets 300 days of sunshine per year. When the Pyrenees are wet and cold, this is the ride to do. It is at lower elevation making it drier and warmer. If I lived in Jaca, this would be one of my go to training rides – some up, some down and some spinning. Gravel Girl rates this as a 4-star ride.
