What is the difference between a greenway and the Pirinexus route?
You can find detailed information here.
And what are cycling routes?
Cycling routes are suitable for cycling but do not meet the standards of a greenway.
Can I go on these routes if I have no experience?
Yes! These routes are accessible and well integrated into the natural environment. Therefore, walking or cycling along any greenway is an excellent option for beginners. Greenways are non-motorised, accessible, enjoyable, and safe communication pathways.
It is important to note that Pirinexus is not a greenway. It is a cross-border cycling loop that combines greenways with other cycling routes such as rural paths or roads with low traffic density. Therefore, some sections are not accessible to everyone.
We also recommend planning your route in advance and taking into account several factors such as your physical ability or weather conditions, among others.
Are greenways suitable for children?
Yes, but children must be old enough and sufficiently prepared. They must always be accompanied by a responsible adult.
What type of bicycle is best suited for greenways?
Greenways are distinguished for being easy and pleasant routes, away from motorised traffic, so they can be explored with all types of bicycles. However, we recommend using mountain bikes due to their versatility.
What type of bicycle is best suited for the Pirinexus route?
For the Pirinexus route, we recommend using gravel bikes, as this route includes different types of tracks and gravel bikes are suitable for both road and dirt tracks.
