Stories, information and comments from Barx climbers
Story by Folkert from Brussels, Belgium, submitted on 24/05/2015
This is a very nice climb. It is well indicated: start in Simat and follow the signs Barx, can''t go wrong. There are also signs at every km indicating average and max %. The road surf is excellent, traffic is generally light and the views are nice. It''s not very long or extremely steep, but still you cover quite a few height meters in a limited number of km and the hairpins make it feel like a real climb. I was in the area for holidays and rented a bike at Patche''s bike shop in nearby Tavernes.



Should you wish to make the climb more challenging, you can continue through the village of Barx and then on to the village of La Drova (a few km, relatively flat), and then turn left after the sign marking the beginning of La Drova (turn left at the bus stop saying La Residencia). That will take you to the Monduver mountain top (marked with a telecom antennas etc.), which is a climb of slightly less than 3 km. The road surf is not great, but in a reasonable condition, and views are beautiful. The climb itself is quite irregular, with lots of turns and parts going up and down, but generally it''s rather steep (with parts that seem to approach 15-20%). You can also do this latter climb coming from the town of Gandia.
