What is DESCENT

DESCENT offers us the opportunity to know securely, quietly and with little physical demand the Maresme’s mountains and towns, Sant Mateu’s peak, ‘’el coll de Gironella’’, the Corredor’s sanctuary, the cross of Canet, ‘’Turó Gros’’, ‘’coll de Palomeres’’ and a like, which offer us spectacular and magnificent panoramic views to the Maresme’s coast.

 

Pedalling through forest paths with oaks, pine trees, aspens, chestnuts, eucalyptus and gray leaf springs, near rivers and streams, between vine crops, in between the cultivation of irrigation and vegetables, in the greenhouses of flowers, through ancient paths which discover farmhouses from past centuries, pedalling through streets and town public squares, learn their history, culture, traditions and habits.

 

DESCENT or downhill MOUNTAIN BIKE is an activity which approaches us to the nature, it permits us to appreciate the sensation of freedom by pedalling through paths surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation and sniffing the smell of mountain.

 

DESCENT offers another vision of towns, the view from the mountain peaks makes you retain the sensations and memories which has offered you the experience.

 

DESCENT takes you a while from the top of the mountains to walk through the village streets, the possibility of getting to know its people, their culture, their historic heritage, their traditions and customs.

 

The practice of DESCENT discovers a variety of sensations, adventure, emotion, tranquillity, peace, freedom and at the same time you do exercise.
