Col de Rates

Start and finish :Denia, Costa Blanca.

44 Miles

Elevation 2,983 feet

A beautiful col starting near Parcent with average gradients of 5% and just 6.5kms of stunning riding. Smooth gradients and hairpins matched the near perfect tarmac. Rosemary, Thyme, and Orange Blossom made the fragrant ride near perfect with occasional Pine trees offering any needed shade.

Beautiful hairpins lead the way clinging to the mountain side and the way ahead can be seen with a cafe at the top. A stunning road with magnificent views over the edge keep your mind focused on the way ahead. A truly wonderful quiet ride over this beautiful Col.
