Exploring the cycling culture of Cerdanya
Its stunning landscape and accessibility called out to be promoted as a cycling region. Marcos Batista and Aleix Biel answered that call “to try to bring together the cyclists of La Cerdanya, with the aim of promoting cycling and teaching our followers that this particular area is a paradise to practice cycling.”
“Generally”, the owners of the Cerdanya Cycling Culture Instagram channel say, “this area is particularly a popular tourist destination for skiing. We want to promote a different kind of tourism than the one we are used to here.”
A social collective of cyclists Batista and Biel offer cyclists a variety of methods to not only explore this beautiful region, but also to get to know one another in a social setting.
Cerdanya Cycling Culture
The easiest way to start was to share photos of the natural beauty available during rides, and therefore an Instagram account was started in October 2021. From there it expanded into a Komoot profile, to share the greatest road, gravel and mountain bike routes, and website for an even more professional image. “The idea was that everyone could easily access information about the most stunning areas in our beautiful region in Catalonia,” Batista says.
“We have in mind new events, new ideas, new collaborations, a whole winter cycling clothing kit that we will have presented once Nafent Magazine volume 4 is out, and we are very excited that the community and collective continues to grow.”
