Just beside the widest river in the world, and only a few metres from the Atlantic Ocean, Eroica Punta del Este begins and ends in the heart of the Peninsula, at the Lighthouse Square. All our routes pass along white and asphalt roads and include stretches along the ocean. Most of the routes are flat but the difficulty increases along the longer routes, when crossing the Sierra de los Caracoles and towards Garzón.
EROICA LEISURE 40 Km
The leisure route is ideal for riders of all levels on vintage bikes. But the challenge should not be underestimated. The old bicycles and white roads will take you back through two centuries of adventures. but its undulating terrain will present some challenges. The route explores La Barra and its countryside, and head straight to the festival venue for some good food.
SAUCE ROUTE 90 Km
The short route is ideal for riders of all levels, but there will be some challenges with its undulating terrain. The route explores La Barra and its inner countryside, passes through an olive yard boutique and stops in a cozy shop at Manantiales.
Then after a nice white road, gets into San Carlos town, and straight to the festival venue for some good food.
EDEN ROUTE 140 Km
The medium route is the same as the short one until San Carlos. Then it gets a little tougher towards passing through an olive oil yard Finca Babieca, then towards a tiny little town called Pueblo Eden, and there a great reward awaits at the Viña Eden winery. After a quick tasting of the flavours and aromas of the local farm produce, the route heads towards the sea at the highest point, Punta Ballena. Only speed or road racing vintage bikes admitted.
GARZON ROUTE 195 Km
The long route, the "Eroica", this year follows its way towars Garzón town. Running through unique places making a few stops for tasting of the flavours and aromas of the local farm produce, this route promises a nice balance of white and asphalt roads.
