Vuelta Route Garrucha Update

 La Vuelta Route Through Garrucha Has Been Updated.

It has been very hard to find exact information about the route La Vuelta will take through Garrucha and Mojacar but Garrucha town hall have posted this, so you would hope they know which roads need to be closed.

It is fairly self explanatory but is different to the last route I published. I f anyone knows the exact route further along please let me know.

If you’re in the UK be sure to catch the highlights at least, they are on ITV 4 at 7pm on Weds 30th August.

La Vuelta 2017 Lorca / Observatorio Astronómico de Calar Alto

August 30th 2017:

The annual cycling tour is passing though here for the first time in a few years, why not give them all a cheer and then nip into a bar for lunch.

The cyclists  leave Lorca at 12.30 and pass through San Juan de los Terreros about an hour later.  It passes Garrucha at around 14:00 and then climbs up to Mojacar pueblo and through Turre at around 14.30 so plenty of chances to see them.
