Some of the advantages enjoyed by these groups are access to accommodation that provides parking for bicycles, bicycle workshops, areas for cleaning bicycles, plus special menus for athletes, flexible meal times, and many other services. Moreover, our territory has plenty of routes that can be adapted to all levels, amateurs and the more professional, gorgeous scenery and a great climate all year round.

route 1: CAMBRILS-TARRAGONA-ALCOVER-MONTBRIÓ-CAMBRILS

This route take you through the counties of el Baix Camp, El Tarragonès and l’Alt Camp. We head towards Salou, enter the city of Tarragona and then cross different municipalities in l'Alt Camp. Once we reach the town of La Selva del Camp, we begin the 7-km climb up to the Coll de La Batalla mountain pass, with a demanding stretch of about 400 m and a maximum gradient of 11%. The beautiful views of Serra de La Mussara on the right will lead us to Alforja, where we begin a pleasant and rapid return to Cambrils.

route 2: SEA and MOUNTAIN CAMBRILS

A route through el Priorat and el Baix Camp with spectacular views. We leave Cambrils, heading towards Montroig del Camp, where we tackle the first mountain pass at the top of Colldejou, the gateway to el Priorat. From there, we descend rapidly to Marçà, and begin the climb up to the second pass from Falset to Coll de Falset, with spectacular views of Porrera in the background. From Porrera we climb to Teixeta, with an exhilarating downhill ride to Duesaigues. We will pass the dam of Riudecanyes and reach Montbrió del Camp. From there, we have approximately 20 km left, an easy stretch, to Vila-Seca, finishing up with 6 km of level terrain from Salou to Cambrils.

route 3: CAMBRILS – FALSET – PORRERA – CAMBRILS

A route to enjoy the landscape of el Priorat. Pleasant, winding, and constantly sloping roads surrounded by vineyards. The kilometres fly past without us realising. The landscape changes constantly, and the closeness between towns makes for a pleasant ride. In the autumn, the smell of pressed grapes after the harvest permeates the whole region. Once atop the Teixeta, the ride down to the dam of Riudecanyes is a fast and enjoyable one, and the remaining kilometres to Cambrils are a pushover.

route 4: SERRA DE LLABERIA CAMBRILS

A demanding route that is tough on the legs, so you have to pace yourself and save your strength for the last summit on the route, the climb up to Castell d'Escornalbou. This route delves into the Serra de LLaberia, up the Coll de Fatxes mountain pass from Pratdip along a very nice road, full of vegetation. After Tivissa, we enter el Priorat, through the villages of La Serra d'Almos, Guiamets, Capçanes, Marçà and La Torre de Fontaubella, where the second mountain pass of the day, Colldejou, begins. After a breakneck-speed descent we begin the climb up again to the Castle of Escornalbou, with many stretches of between 12% and 15%. We return to Cambrils via Riudecanyes and Montbrió, which is all easy pedalling.

route 5: CAMBRILS – REUS – TARRAGONA – CAMBRILS

An ideal route for beginners or for winding down after a hard day. It is virtually plain sailing to Tarragona, where you take the N-340 road, which runs past the Devil's Bridge, one of the best-conserved Roman aqueducts, now declared a World Heritage Site. The climb from Morell to Reus is very doable, although it does get a bit tougher towards Les Borges del Camp, the highest point on the route, after which we begin a gentle descent towards Cambrils, via the towns of Botarell and Montbrió del Camp.

route 6: ROUTE OF THE 6 PORTS CAMBRILS

This demanding route is a non-stop up-and-down affair, from the 50-km to the 120-km point, taking in the counties of Tarragonès, Alt Camp, Baix Camp and Priorat. The mountain passes of Batalla, Alforja, Arbolí, La Morera and Porrera-Teixeta, and over 3000 meters of accumulated climb, make this route a major "leg-breaker" that will satisfy the needs of cyclists up for a good climb. The fantastic views on the way down from Arbolí and from the municipality of La Morera de Montsant, in the foothills of the Montsant mountain range, more than make up for the toughness of this route. A veritable treat for the eyes, showcasing the entire Priorat as far as the Mountain passes of Tortosa-Beseit. The descent to Escala-Dei is breathtaking, which is also a place well worth returning to for a leisurely tour of the monastery. And there are still two mountain passes left (Porrera and Teixeta) before we begin to head back to Cambrils.

route 7: CAMBRILS – LA SELVA – ALFORJA – MONTBRIÓ – CAMBRILS

This route begins with a smooth and progressive ascent to the town of Vilaplana, where we begin to climb the Batalla Pass from the west. La Selva del Camp is the starting point of a long haul towards the picturesque village of l'Albiol, with incredible views of the whole coastline. Our climb continues up the south side of the Mussara mountain range, accompanied at all times by a spectacular view of the Costa Daurada coastline, until we reach the former military camp of Los Castillejos. By this time we will have been cycling at an altitude of about 1000 m for about 15 km. From Los Castillejos there is a long and gradual descent to Alforja. From this town in el Baix Camp, and continuing to descend, we return to Cambrils, leaving the Mountains of Mussara behind us.

route 8: CAMBRILS – VANDELLÓS – COLLDEJOU – CAMBRILS

We leave Cambrils, with 15 km of level terrain ahead of us until Hospitalet de l'Infant. However, the road ramps up abruptly and we begin a gradual climb, via Vandellos, up to the mountain pass of Coll de Fatxes. The descent to Pratdip along a narrow road is a very pleasant one, and you can enjoy the gorgeous scenery as you pedal downwards, but don't take your eye off the road on the bends. A winding tarmac path leads from Pratdip to Colldejou through the depths of a forest. We will soon reach Montbrió del Cap, where a 15-km-long stretch that will test your legs begins. However, once in Riudecanyes it is easy going back to Cambrils, and you can chat with your friends knowing that the route is already in the bag.

route 9: CAMBRILS – VANDELLÓS – MÓRA D’EBRE – EL PERELLÓ – CAMBRILS

This route has an easy and level start up to km 15, where the gradual ascent to Coll de Fatxes, via Vandellós, begins. We then cruise down to Tivissa, in the Ribera d'Ebre county, although we immediately enter el Priorat via the town of La Serra d'Almos. We reach the capital of Ribera d'Ebre, Mora d'Ebre, whence we follow the river Ebro as far as Rasquera. Before that, however, we will be treated to the beautiful town of Miravet on the right, with its stunning Castle and the river boat crossing. Once we get to El Perelló, we take the N-340 road, after which there is 40 km of basically level road back to Cambrils.

route 10: CAMBRILS – MONTCARO – CAMBRILS

This route is rated as level 5 on account of its length (about 200 km), plus the length and difficulty of the only, but utterly spectacular, mountain pass it takes in, Montcaro. The route is virtually level as far as the town of Tortosa, the point of departure for the long 22-km climb to Montcaro, at a height of 1431 m. The climb up to Montcaro begins gently but soon ramps up, with 180-degree bends and gradients of up to 14% in some places. As we climb, the view behind us spurs us on. The town of Tortosa gets smaller and smaller, and the spectacular view of the river Ebro gradually looms up. Once at the top, don't forget to have your photo taken next to the monument to prove that you actually topped this legendary summit. It is time to retrace our steps, and at this point some good company and taking it in turns to lead the group are essential to break the monotony of the long ride back.
