Yes, there are so many issues that I'm thinking of simply starting over with that section:

FD.0005 N42.14358° W1.98739° Yerga - Gravalos Parque Natural Yerga - restricted west of Yerga recreation zone. Change route down to Gravalos then rejoin TET at Villaroya (LR-487)


FD.0006 N42.14821° W2.21528° El Estepál - Navalsaz Looks like 'central' to Windfarm. Camini clearly marked on Open Street map so maybe prohibition is access to windmills? Note for users.


FD.0007 N42.14589° W2.27506° Enciso Trail soon to be under reservoir! Use alternative upper road (LR-115)


FD.0008 N42.15099° W2.32740° Enciso - Vadillos F just said 'closed - no idea why! - and came to it from detour after above. New route needed.


FD.0009 N42.05085° W2.68598° Vadilos - Viloslada de Cameros In middle of PN Sierra de Cebollera - totally closed and TET stay on road! See above, stick to roads.

See what I mean! The trouble is I live up in the Pyrenees, so any route that I make before I can visit, possibly in May/June, will be done at a distance. I'm looking for known routes but even these can be dubious - just like the original!

these routes are on our plan! so will have to work out a ride around!, but could you explain what the coordinates are for please? and what does FD.0007,8,9 mean?

Hi, the coords are exactly what they are, i.e where the 'blockage' is! The references are mine on my database. In future if anyone has question it will make it easier for me to find out what they mean ...

Remember it0s guys like you who are going to make the TET happen, i.e. actually riding trails ... that's why it's free :)

this section seems like as good a place as any to jump onto the road and get some high speed air into the helmets

Hi Simon, me again! I have now had confirmation of the new Spain route, and was wondering if you have now ridden the section as suggested in your early post (before Easter) we will still be going from Cervera de Pisuerga eastwards towards the Bardenas Reales (Tudela) and we are still trying to find out what the actual ground conditions of the trail are likely to be like!

Hi there,

I've had some feedback and basically feel that the La Rioja region is off limits as there are a lot of problems both with the trails and new restrictions. But this feedback is patchy to say the least, e.g. "Dont go this way unless you have your golf clubs"!

Also we've had the most extreme weather in 100 years, with an unusually wet 'mild' winter, i.e. constant freeze-thaw rather than frozen ground for the duration, followed by a record rains, both n terms of volume and intensity, doing extreme damage to the trails, and the roads. Near me, which is the 'Pre-Pyrenees' zone that consists if limestone, we've even had an earthquake, 4.2 on the Richter Scale, that cased a massive landslide that killed a couple driving home from market ...

You really don't want to see what the car looked like when the rescue services eventually disinterred it ... and there's no way of knowing what the trails are like in these areas, almost certainly similar!

So you may be better riding roads to the Bardena and planing to ride more up into the Pyrenees. But bear in mind that from Ayerbe/Loarre the trail enters the Pre-Pyrenees so be prepared to turn back.

I have at least two riders who aim to carry on to do the while TET after my HISS event in the week May 14-17th so we should know a bit more by then, both about the state of the trails in general and what's happening in La Rioja - the trails are suffixed according to the region, e.g.'LR' for La Rioja, 'CL' for Castilla-y-León, etc.

Hi Simon
I read on some forum (UKGSr i think) that the Rioja section is going to have to be completely re routed. Is this right? and why? We will be going through that section hopefully and just wondered! as ill have to re download the gpx nearer to the time that we go.
Hello, this post is from May 28.
There you can read that the goberment of the "la Rioja" province is going to increase the control on off road vehicles to fight the riding in forbiden tracks.
I dont know if the TET is affected or not.
