Mountain Passes & Hills

  1. Alt Del Pla De Les Arenes – with 29 km and 835+, it is the longest mountain pass of the route. From the village Anglès till Osor, we find 9 km of slight slopes. After Osor we start the hardest and wining part of the pass, with 5’5 km and an elevation gain of 5%. A few quick kilometres with the same altitude gain, will drive us to Sant Hilari Sacalm. Once we have crossed this population, we will head for el Pla De Les Arenes, 4 km long in 4’5%.
  2. Coll De Romegats – the shortest mountain pass of the route but the one with the hardest beginning. After going down the long slope of Collsesplanes and crossing Sant Sadurní D’Osmort, we will find slopes up to 11 % to warm up and as a prelude of the 4,1 km at 4,6 %, skirting the Eix Transversal.
  3. Coll De Bracons – with two different parts, the Coll de Bracons is the highest point of the route, with 1148 m. Leaving Sant Pere De Torelló, after a slope, we will start a continuous up and downhill with some important slopes and some twisted roads. From Sant Andreu la Vola, an eight-kilometre mountain pass, starts the toughest and constant part with 5,5 km at 7,2%. Exactly when we leave the town, we will find slopes up to a 14%, some beautiful bends and also the most the hardest part of the route with an altitude gain of 10,4%. The last part can be tough for more than one, either for the persistence required and all the journey done.
  4. Alt De Sant Martí Sacalm – those who decide to finish the long route will have 8,3 km left at 7%. The persistence required to go up the slope may seem endless if you haven’t saved energy. Nevertheless, the effort is worth it for the amazing environment you will be surrounded: La Corba del Mirador, La Font De la Teula and the mountain chain El Far, as well as the reward of the huge training to crown the 139 km and 2800+ of the Cycle Tour Amer-Sant Martí.
