Nice piece of the C-55 near Montserrat area which can be used for connecting with other nearby routes. Nice views between Montserrat skirt and Llobregat river. Not for high speeds though the road surface is in mean condition, nice for routing.
I really can believe that no one posted this route already. If you are riding anywhere within 300 kms this is a must do route, don miss it! Ride it both ways and stop for lunch at the Montserrat Monastery before riding it both ways a second time. Awesome scenery, great views, incredible road, surface and cambers an absolute dream. If riding during the tourist season get there early otherwise the road is a quiet one except for local bikers from Manresa and Barcelona who like to ride it early on weekends. I can wait to read your reviews. Craig Mawlam says enjoy!
This little rural road starts in Monistrol de Montserrat bordering El Llobregat river, then it goes through the magic town of Vacarisses between Parc natural de Sant Llorenç del Munt, Serra de l'Obac and Parc natural de Montserrat where you can visit its XII century castle or the outstanding XI century church of Sant Pere i Sant Feliu... wow! Then the road goes down to Olesa road under an old roman bridge and stunning venue.
This amazing little road borders the south east part of the magic mountain of Montserrat surrounded by an espectacular landscape. Very nice corners, some of them tight but still kind. The road is in very good condition.
A nice road through "la serra de l'Obac". Meet some catalonian local crazy biker beating you with a korean scooter. Some of the best catalonian riders like Marc Marquez, Dani Pedrosa, Alex Criville, Xavi Coca, Sete Gibernau, Joan Garriga and many more grew up and forged their legend in this road and others around this zone. The biological, cultural and landscaping interest of this mitic road is undeniable. With lots of corners and a good surface you will be looking forward to repeat the experience.
