The first tour gives you a taste of what awaits you the next days: beautiful roads, long climbs and unique landscapes. Ideal to prepare the legs, the first meters of altitude are collected here.At the beginning, the route leads along small side roads to Mont-roig del Camp, a small town northwest of Cambrils. Shortly thereafter, the first ascent awaits you: the Coll Roig (or Colldejou), which runs along the Serra de Llaberia mountain range. The road leads in places through heavily wooded area, but at the latest at the same place Colledjou a first view of the coastal region free.After passing through the windmills just above the pass, a winding descent to La Torre de Fontaubella follows. Although it makes every rider's heart beat faster, you should pay attention to roll splits in some corners. If the water bottles are already empty, you can replenish them at the small fountain near the village entrance.Good that the legs are already warmed up, because now follows another increase with moderate slope. The road of Coll de Pradell de la Teixeta leads you past orange trees, fields and ruined walls. After the village of Pradell de la Teixeta, turn right onto the main road N-420 and follow the signs for Coll de la Teixeta for about two kilometers. At the roundabouts, you must then turn onto the T-313 road.The Coll de la Teixeta is certainly one of the classics in this region. So it's even nicer to just bring it down and enjoy the view of the coast - curve by curve. After passing the village of Duesaigües and its Roman aqueduct Aqüeducte de les Ferreres (do not forget to take a photo), you continue downhill. It follows a winding and slightly wavy road, which leads past the large water reservoir Embassament de Riudecanyes. Afterwards, you can roll along comfortably on the last, flat kilometers and visit the beach in Cambrils. Welcome to Catalonia!
