First stage of the cycling circuit, which runs through different parts of Ribera de Arriba, Morcín and Riosa.
Summary Bueño - Villapará Recreational Area

The GR-208 Central Mountains Cycling Circuit starts in Llosalín Sports Area (Güeñu/Bueño) and takes the riverside path bordering the Nalón and the sports and recreational area heading down to the bank of the river, which you cross to then ride uphill to the village of Palombar, following the PR-240 Riverside Trail.

From Palombar, you then continue along the trail traced by the network of lanes leading to the neighbourhood of La Villa. From there, you take the tarmacked lane to Fuexos, from where a concrete track heads up to the Casa del Malato fork. Take the left fork, which continues to be paved in concrete, until you get to La Mortera.

The trail now heads into the valley down a very steep slope that leads to Campo de Peñerúes.

In Peñerúes, the GR-208 leaves the PR-143 Angliru Trail to take the secondary road from Los Duernos to San Xuan de La Piñera, where the GR once again goes cross country passing above El Vallín and following a series of very technical, cross-country sections to finish in La Vara.

You pass through the upper part of the village of La Vara to then take the dirt road once again, passing through muddy areas such as that of La Salguera, before arriving in Carbayosa and passing through the village along the main road.

From there, you can access the MO-1 road coming from Busloñe on the way to the road that goes up to El Angliru (RI-5). This is a paved stretch about 3,600 metres in length that allows you to gain about 100 metres in elevation without much problem, thus concluding the first stage of the Central Mountains Cycling Circuit.
