Stage 12:Ages-Burgos(22,0 km)
(3)Villaval-(4)Cardeñuela Riopico:7,3-8,3(1,0 km)
(4)Cardeñuela-(5)Orbaneja Riopico:8,3-10,8(2,5 km)
The first part of the stage runs through the Sierra de Atapuerca, where we find the most important fossil deposits in Europe. Past the modest peak of the Sierra and after Orbaneja, the second part of the stage is the entrance into the city of Burgos, along which we cross a large industrial estate.
We get from Ages to Atapuerca following a nice secondary road (photo 1 and 2).
(2)Atapuerca-(3)Villaval: 2.4-7.3(5.1 km)
We cross Atuperca along the same road by which we arrived and at the exit of the town we leave the road at the 2.8 km (see photo 3). If you continue along the road it will bring you to the town of Olmos de Atapuerca after 2.5 km where there is a hostel. At the exit of Atapuerca and after we leave the road the path climbs up along a mountain which is more a stony hillside than a mountain (see photo 4). We descend along a wide dirt path (see photo 5) that brings us to Villaval. In fact the path does not enter but runs along the edge of the small town of Villaval.
(3)Villaval-(4)Cardeñuela Riopico: 7.3-8.3(1.0 km)
At the exit of Villaval we take a small secondary road which brings us to Cardeñuela de Riopico (see photo 6).
(4)Cardeñuela-(5)Orbaneja Riopico: 8.3-10.8(2.5 km)
The same road (see photo 7) brings us to Orbaneja de Riopico (see photo 8).
Again the same road (see photo 9) brings us into the vicinity of an airport which surround us a roundabout at the entrance to Villafria (see photo 10). But the way runs along the border of Villafria and we leave with the town on our right hand side.
(6)Villafria-(7)Burgos: 14.0-22.0(8.0 km)
There are 8 km to the entrance of Burgos, most of it along a bicycle path parallel to the national road (photo 11 and 12).
