La Ribera BTT Centre

La Ribera BTT Centre

The Centre BTT la Ribera is located in  La Casa Blava Restaurant & Hotel,  in the town of Alzira, from where the various cycle routes to tour the region that names the BTT center depart.

With a total of nine routes and 415 marked kilometers, you can bike around different scenarios of the Ribera region, crop fields and water infrastructure, and cultural landscapes, such as the route of the monasteries. The transitions of the Ribera plain to the mountains, full of natural areas such as the Murta and Casella, of great natural beauty, surprise the voyager with its geography and its botanical diversity.

The town of Alzira provides a valuable artistic heritage thanks to its historic walled center, labelled as Heritage of Cultural Interest. Besides, we can practice walking activities among the orange trees and valleys that surround the nearby mountains, where beautiful examples of rural architecture of the late nineteenth and early twentieth rise. 

The munipality features two sharp contrasts. On one hand, the floodplain of the Xúquer River, the fertile fields of which is full with large orange orchards and watered by innumerable canals taking water from the Royal Xúquer Canal. On the other hand, the mountains of Corbera, Cavall and les Agulles, crowned by sharp ridges, where orange trees climb up their skirts until they give way to pine forests.
