A BIKE RIDE through amazing landscapes and mountains in La Rioja, taking you overthe Demanda and Cameros Mountains to the headwaters of the Oja, Iregua and Najerilla Rivers, through tiny mountain villages with traditional architecture and a pastoral history including Ezcaray and San Millán de la Cogolla, and through the villages in the Camero Nuevo and the Siete Villas regions.
AN EXPERIENCE that invites you to find out more about the places that hold on to the memory of the transhumance; sheep pens, huts, shearing farms, small anthropological museums, chapels that honour pastoral miracles, small inns where shepherds and their flocks rested and exhibitions and visitor centres about this inherited landscape.
AN INVITATION FOR YOUR SENSES taste traditional pastoral food, touch the blankets and patchwork quilts, smell the local cheese, listen and dance to traditional music and meet the people who keep the ancient transhumance festivals alive.
