Ideal bike tour to find out the origins of the countryside of Murcia
Just 40 km away from Mediterranean beaches, Murcia extends along the valley of Segura river. The same river Murcia Orchard is born, a unique farming place in Europe due to its Roman and Islamic origin and structure and organization.
From Murcia centre itself, you go back to the dense net of irrigation canals and channels until getting to Contraparada, which is a place all channels that water the Orchard are born. The walk for this reservoir over Segura River, whose origin is Roman, will serve in order to understand its working and evolution.
The way back to Murcia will be the chance to peacefully walk by the quiet « carriles », small local roads that plough through the Orchard, among bitter oranges, lemon trees and vegetables.
Without losing sight of the Murcia cathedral tower, the cycle lane in the river will take us to the gates of Mercado de Verónicas where you will visit its crowed and clashing fish, vegetables and pickles posts.
The bike tour lasts around 3h30 (24 km), enough to enjoy a unique rural and urban experience in Spain.

Highlights:
Ride around Malecón, an emblematic place in Murcia
Visit to Contraparada, a rural and archeological complex and the place where the Orchard borns
Follow the irrigation and traditional channels that go through the quiet waters of Segura River
Come back to Murcia by the gentle cycle lane of Segura River
End this experience by eating some tapas in Mercado de Veronicas
