HISS Events for 2015

The numbers are limited to 36 bikes/riders for various reasons, mainly so as to overcrowd the trails and also not to swamp the campsites, which are also used by ‘normal’ people! The limited number also helped create a warm and friendly atmosphere and gives myself and Mrs Spanish Biker enough time to be around to help folks settle in and get the best out of the rally.

Spring 2014: Aragón; the Mountains of Teruel

  • Dates:  Monday May 11th to Friday May 15th
  • Location: Camping Algarbe, Terriente, Teruel, Spain

Summer 2014: The Catalan Pyrenees

  • Dates: first full week in September, i.e. Monday September 7th to Friday September 11th
  • Location: Camping Collegats, La Pobla de Segur, Lleida, Spain

Both rallies are repeats of last years very successful HISS events, with many lessons learned and improvements made. In both cases I have surveyed and mapped more trails, about 600-700 kilometres in all, which take the rally’s ‘territory’ beyond the range of the maps we used last year.  In Catalonia only a handful of riders covered anywhere near the length  of trails that were available and I am also adding several special sections of quite severe riding. Meanwhile in Aragon I’m adding a complete ‘new’ territory, the amazing sierras of the Maestrazgo – so there will be plenty for HISS ‘veterans’ to do!

As before there is plenty to do ‘off bike’, the white water rafting was a great success but there is plenty more. The campsite gets a discount price for groups of folks who are staying there and the company also does other action sports like kayak and canyoning . .
