MTB XC Route, over 63.9 kilometers long and with 810 m of positive accumulated height. Beginning and ending at the "Polo D - Baixo Alentejo do Centro de Cyclin' de Almodôvar", located in the village of Almodôvar.
Course of highs skill level, that travels the rural paths in the surroundings of the village of Almodôvar. The degree of difficulty is attributed essentially to the distance covered and the accumulated gap, as the paths are generally wide and have a good floor. The slopes are always light to moderate and almost always with great flow throughout the landscape. The landscape is dominated by cork oak and holm oak trees with several crossings on the Mira River bed, which may be conditioned during periods of higher flow. The main crossing points are the Archaeological Ruins of Mesas do Castelinho and the villages of "Santa Clara-a-Nova, Gomes Aires" and "Aldeia dos Fernandes" where there are support services such as cafes and public toilets. In "Santa Clara-a-Nova" you can visit the Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum “Manuel Vicente Guerreiro”. This route is partially coincident with other routes of this Cycling Center, with different distances and degrees of difficulty, allowing you to choose a different route during the activity. In addition, this route also allows the connection to the Cycling Center of Ourique, being partially coincident with two of its routes.
