The pleasure of eating or dining in a hotel or a rural restaurant with raw materials that in many cases come from the orchards themselves is one of the strengths of these routes in which the landscape puts the icing on the look for nature in state pure.
This route that has a duration of seven days and six nights is classified as medium intensity, something that must be taken into account when doing it if you are not in sufficient shape. The electric bicycle could be an alternative for those who want to enjoy these landscapes without having to pedal at full speed.
The greenway is one of the most famous bicycle routes in Spain. In this case, a long stretch of interior is combined that descends towards the coast to skirt it from Gandía to Valencia.

Keep in mind that in this type of routes the fatigue accumulates and even if you opt for an electric bicycle, pedaling is always going to be necessary and if you do not have a previous background the laces can end up ruining the expectations of any traveler who does not have experience in bicycle routes. If it is considered that it can be a somewhat ambitious journey, you can begin with the previously proposed one, which, being much shorter, tests the possibilities of each person without falling into excesses.
Although the daily routes are quite long there is the possibility of shortening them in some of the dates to avoid accumulating an excess of kilometers in the legs and back. The heart of this trip is to know the rural area of Valencia, with its olive plantations, its vineyards and fruit trees among which always stand out the orange trees for the importance that this fruit has in the economy of the area.
