The 220-km route has a cumulative elevation gain of 5800m, and can be adapted for all levels, ranging from the easy 6-stage ride with a guide to the challenge of completing the circuit in just 3 days.

The route runs along typical mountain paths, tracks, and forest trails, making use of the hotel and rural tourism options available in Val d’Aran, Pallars Sobirà, Pallars Jussà and Alta Ribagorça Counties.

The Non Stop version of Pedals de Foc takes place at the end of June, in which cyclists complete the route in one go or in less than two days. The toughness of the ride, together with the beautiful landscape, has made this event an international reference in ATB ultramarathon endurance tests. It is also part of the first circuit of Pedales del Mundo’s MTB Ultramarathon Series.
