Once in the village there are two restaurants to choose for your refreshments (from my previous visits to the village the first restaurant RV5 cooks the best paella I have tasted so far on the island). The route from the village along the river bed and base of the mountain ridge is excellent. At RV 6 there is an historical point of interest which is an old pottery village or factory from the early industrial days on the island. From there it is a straight run to the main road FV2 where you then join the road for a short leg before once more turning off onto the dirt tracks towards the village of Los Alares and then onto the homeward leg back towards Salinas.
At some point you turn off the main track and follow the rough track once more uphill back towards Chipmunk Mountain, as you travel downhill into the valley and the river bed be aware once more of the loose gravel and rocks before you begin the final uphill sections to the finish point. The final uphill section is a bit of a slog so simply get your head down select the right gear and keep going, stopping on this section will only make starting up again more difficult and there are a few small sections where your back wheel may slip if you have selected the wrong gear.
I did this ride with 2 good friends and it was an excellent day out with a good workout thrown in for good measure.
