For our 1st anniversary ride in September 2011 we decided to embark on our most ambitious ride to date. A 72km cycle along the Via Verde de la Sierra from Puerto Serrano to Olvera. The route follows the old disused railway track which was built in the 1930's but never actually completed. It goes through spectacular scenery rising some 400 metres from Puerto Serrano to Olvera. there are 30 tunnels, 4 viaducts and 5 old railway stations along the route. After lunch at Olvera we made our way back to the start relieved to know that it was mostly down hill all the way back.
