The schedule is as follows:

Day 1: Picos de Europa

Distance: 81 mi

Positive slope: 2500 mts

Potes - San Glorio - Riaño - Posada de Valdeón - Santa Marina de Valdeón - Portilla de la Reina - San Glorio - Potes. Intensive stage, we'll climb three spots, San Glorio, Panderrueda and Pandetrave. Approx. 81 mi, I should double check, and approx. 8202 ft of positive slope. If you are a thrill-seeker you can add up 1968 ft of positive slope in a in-route variation to Dobres - Cucayo. Cucayo is a beautiful village and it is considered the best venue for Asturian bicycle touring. This unforgettable mountain stage will take you to the heart of the Picos de Europa.

Day 2: Picos de Europa

Distance: 75 mi

Positive slope: 8530 ft

Potes - La Hermida - Cicera - Quintanilla - Puentenansa - Piedrasluengas - Potes. 75 mi approximately and 8530 ft of positive slope approx. A monument for bicycle touring. We'll head up to El Collado de la Hoz, El Collado de Ozalba and Piedrasluengas Port, also this day we'll get to the mythical La Hermida Pass. This is an unbelievable ride with 16 mi of downhill at the end. Again, for the thrill-seekers, there's a 3 mi harsh section between Collado de la Hoz and Colladode de Ozalba. Know your limits, because there are 23 more miles waiting for you in Piedrasluengas.

Day 3: Scenic Cantabrian

Distancia en bici: 50 - 75 mi

Desnivel positivo: 8530 ft

Medium mountain stage, nevertheless, you'll feel the pain in your legs and will leave you exhausted after many ups and downs at el Sopalo (no matter how good you are, it will burn). Thankfully, all this is compensated by the incredible views to the Cantabrian and the Picos de Europa, great asphalt and cero traffic, nada! A spectacular route. Although it doesn't seem to, it is a hard ride, if the wind starts blowing, it may feel endless. This section of the route has many variations, from 50 mi to 75 mi, whatever works for you, no problem.
