MTB XC Route, over 27,2 kilometers long and with 300 m of positive accumulated height. Beginning and ending at the "Polo B - Ribatejo no Centro Centro de Cycling do Arripiado - Chamusca", located in the village of Arripiado.
High skill level route at the Arripiado Cycling Center - Chamusca that runs through the Ribatejo hills, south of the Tagus, where cork and eucalyptus pedrominate. The level of difficulty is attributed essentially because of the distance covered, since the paths used are mostly wide, passing small sections on more technical tracks. The terrain is mostly made of clay and the layout has different levels of uneveness. The main crossing points are the lagoons and the Covão do Redondo dam. It also passes through Carregueira where you can enjoy various support services such as cafes, typical restaurants, fountains and public toilets.
