Grazalema will be our starting point, going up and downd a couple of kilometers until Villaluenga del Rosario with a short descent at the end of this smal village in Cádiz province, famous with its payoya goats cheese.

We will then continue along a small up and down road until Benaocaz, which we leave to our right to begin with a long descent, quite sinuous, which will take us to Ubrique, known for its handicrafts and leather works, we enter a busy area, but also beautiful for its landscapes between valleys that will gradually take us to El Bosque, and to enter it we will take a small crossing, by a secondary road, to let us observe what awaits before facing the first port of our route, El Boyar.

El Boyar begins fairly smooth and gradually will show us all its splendor, before the junction with the town of Benamahoma will pass through an area, next to the river, which will not leave anyone indifferent cycling over there, looks like the Pyrenees area and its high mountains, forgetting we are in Andalusia.

The port starts with large ramps and constant turns, which will make us get altitude quickly. Step by step softens the ground to reach a recreational area, where we can breathe and recreate our sight with the landscape will find on our way. In this point the port begins again to show us its hardness, with linked curves to arrive at the highest zone and where we changed the landscape leaving behind the trees and beginning the scrub.

At this point we can not get carried away by our view, apparently the ground appears to soften and will feel the slope continues and the flat ground becomes a constant ascent. The rest of the climb will be quieter and will enjoy the breathtaking views El Boyar delight us. We approach to the top, typical place to take the traditional photo with the port signal behind us.

From here we will begin a long and beautiful descent that will take us back to Grazalema, but will be a quick visit because our route continues where we started, except that this time we will take the turn to the left, along the path of the Riverita, called by local people. Will go up about five hundred meters of high ramp, and then begin a nice long descent to the big marsh, riding alongside and enjoying the beauty environment.
