The valley of the river Corb

Barberà de la Conca
The valley of the river Corb

 Crossing the valley of river Corb that runs through four counties, Anoia, Segarra, Conca de Barbera and Urgell, and passes through towns as unique as Santa Coloma de Queralt Vallfogona of Riucorb and Guimerá. Despite increases in the first leg of the route, a route is simple. But we must bear in mind that the mileage is not negligible and that the Urgell, at the end of the trip, the wind can blow. The route goes through very busy roads. You need a second car in Bellpuig village where the trail ends, to return to the starting point. Leave the car parked at the port of Panadella (701 m) should be directed to the intersection located 100 m east of the Vell Hostel to turn a stretch of road outside the small town. Indicators will continue to Santa Coloma de Queralt (L-221). The first 2.2 km are gentle climb up to the Creu del vent(798 m). Then the trip without difficulty and show some slides, past Bellmunt (775 m 3 km) from km 7, begins a rapid decline that lasts until the arrival of Santa Coloma de Queralt (676 m, 11 km). Before arriving there, at km 8.2, it leads to the C-241 and turn right towards the latter population. The next step is Rauric (750 m) reached in Santa Coloma de Queralt taking a detour to the right, the T-224. Already pedaling along 13.6 km. Continue alternating ramps, but all are short. This core (Rauric) consists of four houses strung atop a promontory. At the entrance to the city center there is a curious trough for livestock consists of a series of baths arranged in a row. At the height of 22.5 km, you cross the Corb River by a bridge. This is a good point to go down and cool off a bit. Instead, you should not drink water, because there may be discharges of waste from farms nearby. Later, in a corridor of trees, is the spa of Vallfogona Riucorb (587 m, 23.9 km), just before entering the town itself (560 m, 25.8 km.) Is this piece of asphalt in better conditions throughout the route. Vallfogona marks about the halfway point of the trip and worth leaving the bike for a few minutes and wander through the village and admire its beautiful church. In Guimerá (502 m, 30.5 km), the next population is, the road passes by the back right side of river. In this medieval town it must rest on the bike and start walking the streets labyrinthine, often connected by stairs, they do win the hill on which the people s'encastella. From the ruins of the castle, you get a magnificent view of much of the valley of the River Crow. At the height of Ciutadilla, where the medieval castle, you cross the road C-14 (460 m, 35.2 km) and the small neck of the Portella (473 m, 35.6 km), it follows by L-201 still following the river Corb. After Maldà St. Martin (or St. Martin Riucorb, 410 m, 42 km) and Maldà (km 45), we lose sight of the Crow River and entered fully into the flat urgellenca. In Belianes (374 m, 46.2 km), the main street has an interesting right in the middle tray to drain in case of heavy rain, but it can cause a rider to fall hard clueless. It continues north along the road LP-2015, crosses the Canal d'Urgell (309 m, 52.9 km) and reached Bellpuig (290 m, 54.5 km), where the tour ends .
