Tourism Competitiveness Plan for the Biosphere Reserve of La Rioja: “The Man-Made Landscape”

Bicycle touring, and specifically mountain bike touring, is a significantly popular activity rooted in Europe. This recreational sport has great tourist potential due to its contribution to the diversity of tourism offer, as well as susceptible of being consumed alone or in combination with other activities in the natural environment and as an integrated part of ecological tourism related to the world of adventure.

Apart from isolated initiatives, the Autonomous Community of La Rioja lacks a global and structured tourist product that: i) integrates the entire territory and all the aspects regarding the practice of this activity; and ii) at the same time is aimed at facilitating and promoting the practice of a tourist activity based on the structured use of the mountain bike amongst potential users.

Objectives: 

To create a path connecting the seven municipalities included in the Plan that are part of the Biosphere Reserve of La Rioja and open three Mountain Bike Centres located in 3 strategic municipalities.

State: 

The seven municipalities included in the Plan will be connected by a network of paths in the following way: Leza de Río Leza - Santa Engracia del Jubera – Ocón - Robres del Castillo – Munilla –Zarzosa - Soto en Cameros - Leza de Río Leza.
