The Gregarios is an ultra-distance race inspired by the historic Cifesa Grand Prix, a long-distance road race, originally one of the longest in Spain, which started in Madrid and finished in Valencia. Reserved for a few elite cyclists, it served to increase their sporting prestige, due to the strong physical demand it required. Just imagine pedaling 350 kilometers in a single journey in the 1940s in Spain. With dirt roads and no security measures.
The original route went from Puerta del Sol in Madrid to the beach in Valencia. In its VII edition, which will take place on October 8, 2022, La Gregarios relives this experience again. Imagine having the opportunity to star in that feat enjoying incredible landscapes and, above all, good company.
