6. Go Green

Keep the smog off by going green on Bike Madrid-Lisbon. Choosing a traverse like this with several days in a row biking and never have to use a motor vehicle will save your health and the environment. Only a few individuals have the possibility to say that they covered more than 1000 km between the two Iberian capitals without having used a motor vehicle. It’s time to start pumpin’ those pedals and start practicing for the epic traverse BIKE MADRID-LISBON.

After climbing a huge hill, nothing will feel better than flying back down and feeling that cool air. It’s a great feeling and one that will easily become addicting! With more than 20000 meters ascent you will have a lot of downhill to enjoy the speed.

4. You can Stop and Take in your Surroundings

This is a territory that is still much unknown and scattered by just a few. The presence of the modern world is hardly sensed. Cycling these mountains sometimes you feel that you turned back in time. It’s always worthwhile to stop and absorb what is around you. And maybe have a nice rest while you're having a picnic in the middle of the day in beautiful places. "Let's stop here, it's a beautiful spot" is a much better rationale than "that last hill nearly killed me…"

“Miles after miles I biked and never felt the presence of this highly technological world of nowadays. I was so impressed by the places full of History that the traverse brought me through.” By Bianca Vries, survivor of Bike Madrid-Lisbon.

3. It’s an Adventure

The feeling of setting off on an entirely new trip, without having a fully coherent vision of where you're going to end up, it one of the joys of cycle touring. A traverse like this can make you dream when you are getting ready and then make you dream even more of doing something so intense yet again.

“The feel of setting off on a bike in an unknown place seems like more of an adventure. For someone that never settled foot in these two countries deciding to go for a trip like this is a wonderful adventure.” By Peter Massa, survivor of Bike Madrid-Lisbon.

2. It Makes you Feel Great

Though the scientific evidence remains inconclusive, bikers that finished in previous years were adamant: cycling these mountains makes you feel even better.

“In previous years, I always got depressed around February to March. And then last June, I went for the Madrid-Lisbon Mountain Bike. Along with the concomitant benefits of weight loss and a boost to fitness, I've noticed a massive improvement in my mental health during the months of preparation. Anything that makes me thinner, fitter, healthier and happier cannot be bad for me… and then my reward finishing in Roca Cape, the most western point of Europe.” By Paul Nilsson, survivor of Bike Madrid-Lisbon.
