Route quite demanding and leg-breaking, it is necessary to dose and save strength for the last port of the itinerary, the ascent to the Castle of Escornalbou. This route goes into the Sierra de LLaberia, climbing the Coll de Fatxes from Pratdip, along a very pleasant road, full of vegetation. After Tivissa we enter the Priorat, passing through the villages of La Serra d'Almos, Guiamets, Capçanes, Marçà and La Torre de Fontaubella, from where we will start the second pass of the day, Colldejou. After a dizzying descent we start the ascent to Escornalbou Castle, with many sections of between 12 and 15%. We will return to Cambrils through Riudecanyes and Montbrió, always on favorable terrain.
We leave Cambrils and we have before us 15 flat kilometers until we reach Hospitalet de l'Infant. Soon, however, the road goes uphill to start a progressive ascent through Vandellòs until you reach the Coll de Fatxes. The descent that takes us to Pratdip on a narrow road is very pleasant and the landscape invites you to enjoy the descent, without rushing too much in the curves. From Pratdip to Colldejou we will take a winding asphalt road in the middle of the forest.
We will quickly arrive at Montbrió del Camp, from where we will begin a leg-breaking 15-kilometer section of the route, with constant changes in elevation. Once we get to Riudecanyes however, the return to Cambrils is easy, and invites to pedal even chatting with the companions of departure knowing that the route is already in the pocket.
To crush the flat, take the bike and ride hard. Our route is on the old national road (N-340) towards l'Atmella and El Perelló. It is a road with little traffic, now that the highways have been made free, except for the transfer between campsites in summer. L'Atmella is about 35 kilometers away and the shoulder is passable. If we arrive at El Perelló, we will be at the gateway to the Ebro Delta and ride along the Delta Nature Trail, an infinite place to go cycling, although perhaps not in summer because of the heat.
A route to enjoy the landscape of Priorat. Pleasant, winding roads with constant inclines, surrounded by fields of vineyards. The kilometers pass quickly, without us noticing. The landscape is constantly changing, and the proximity between villages makes the journey distracting. In autumn, the smell of pressed grapes after the grape harvest spreads throughout the region. Once we crowned the Teixeta, the descent to the swamp of Riudecanyes makes us enjoy the speed and we only have a favorable terrain until we reach Cambrils.
Ideal route for beginners or to recover your legs after a hard day.
Practically flat route to Tarragona, where we take the N-340, we pass by the side of the Devil's Bridge, one of the best preserved Roman aqueducts and declared a World Heritage Site. From El Morell to Reus there is a very slight ascent that is accentuated when we reach Les Borges del Camp, the highest point of the route, from which we begin a gentle descent to Cambrils, passing through the towns of Botarell and Montbrió del Camp.
