CHALLENGE 

Port d’Envalira, Andorra’s highest paved road, is a vital transportation artery and often experiences heavy traffic, detracting from the enjoyment of the ride. The road’s resemblance to a highway adds an element of risk, necessitating riders to stay strictly on the right side for safety.

Despite these challenges, the climb is a favorite among professional cyclists and those seeking to conquer significant cols. It’s particularly appealing for training due to its relatively gentle gradients and high altitude. What the climb lacks in steepness, it compensates with extended distance, providing a great challenge for riders.
