Well warmed up, the second day begins flat and leads you, on already known roads, up the Coll de la Teixeta. While this road served as a departure yesterday, today it represents the first daily destination.Once at the top, the route leads past the roundabouts and then continues to the exit for Porrera. On this side of the mountain range, a special climb awaits you, as the road from Porrera to Falset runs along a beautiful, expansive hilly landscape.Shortly before the village Falset, the route now heads north and leads you over a longer descent through the National Park Riu Siurana i Planes del Priorat. On the other side of this park, a short climb to Gratallops awaits you.At Gratallops, take the T-712 westbound. On the way to El Lloar, El Molar and El Masroig you collect again countless impressions - your legs, however, a few meters.Just a few miles to El Masroig you have to drive a short distance on the main road N-420, as on the first day. But after just two kilometers, the path leads you to the secondary road T-363 in the direction of Marçà. But after a short descent the last hurdle of the day awaits you: the ascent to La Torre de Fontaubella and the back of the pass Coll Roig (or Colldejou). Tip: In La Torre de Fontaubella you can refill your water bottles.If the legs at the end of the pass are not tired yet, the steep road to the wind wheels is definitely a crowning glory. During the subsequent descent to Mont-roig del Camp and return to Cambrils you can see the long-awaited cooling off, the beach and the sea. What a day!
