Closed road in Catalunya, Besalu'

Post by Fast » Mon Sep 17, 2018 5:16 pm

Hi guys, saturday morning I went for a ride on a piece of the catalan TET from Besalu' to Coustouges. At the beginning, close to Besalu' entry point, at about N42° 13.238' E2° 41.521', the road is closed with a fence due to free animals. Actually, if you are not alone, you can lift up the iron line and go (I don't sincerly know if you can get into problems). I tried a different route on the right starting at about N42° 13.166' E2° 41.573' but I got stuck in the bush on a tight muddy single truck (bmw gs 800 adv) untill I got stopped by a fallen three and had to, difficultly, turn back.

I had a nice entry point in Queixas ( about here N42° 13.590' E2° 48.119' ) and rode it untill Coustouges without problems...a nice ride even with maxi trail

(p.s. if there is someone of my area.. Alt empordà... let's ride it togheter)

Hi Andrea,
Thank you for the info.

I was preparing a 'mar i muntanya' for next weekend, and maybe to include some TET section 1, but still have to contrast them on my maps (very new to this TET yet. I did some MTB on the area in the past and but need to refresh.

BTW, I met a sardinian in Porto Torres living in Alt Empordà last spring, but I recall he was riding an AF, so must be wrong ;/

Benvingut.. The piece "Queixas-Llado'-Albanya'-Coustouges" it's really nice and routable with a maxi trail.
