Our prestigious mountain landscape grabs the attention each year of cycling enthusiasts from around the world during the Asturian stages of the Vuelta Ciclista España, the Cycling Tour of Spain, with landmarks such as: Alto del Angliru, Lagos de Covadonga, Puertos de Marabio, Alto de la Farrapona or the Puerto de San Lorenzo. The very names conjure up images of cycling.

Apart from the Long-Distance Paths, which can be enjoyed on mountain bikes, such as the Way of St. James (Way of the North and the Original Way of St. James), or a large section of the coastal path, Senda Costera, we also have other Long-Distance routes that are ideal to be explored on bikes.

These include the Anillo Ciclista of the Central Mountain of Asturias, a gruelling circular route that covers natural areas such as the Aramo mountains, the Nature Reserve of Las Ubiñas-La Mesa, the Vía Carisa, or the Protected Landscape of the Cuencas Mineras.
