Alto de Beneixama
elevation: 989m gradient: 4.4% distance: 8.9km
Port del Moro (from Fontanars dels Alforins)
The climbs that almost makes it to 1000m! It's also an often over looked or unknown climb but does provide a fantastic interlude for rides into the wine country or as a challenge in itself for less strong riders. The gradients are mostly kind too and combined with a stop in Fontanars make for a more relaxed climbing day on the bike, if 1000m mountains can be considered relaxing. The descent is somewhat technical to Beneixama but can be enjoyed at a steady pace too, as the views in Spring time especially are worth slowing for.
