The Ruta Via de la Plata-Non Stop/Eurovelo 1

The Ruta Via de la Plata-Non Stop/Eurovelo 1 (RVP-Non Stop/Eurovelo 1) is a mountain bike sporting event in the purest randonneur style between Gijón and Seville in which it is possible to enter individually or as a team (and which can be done fully or in relays). RVP-Non Stop/Eurovelo 1 will be held to coincide with the full moon in June.

The event will begin at 10.00 am on Wednesday June 12 2019 in Gijón and will finish in Seville on Sunday June 16 at 1.00 pm, with a maximum duration of 100 hours to complete the route (average speed of 10 kph).

The event will include eight check points where the participants must have their route card stamped (La Pola de Gordón, La Bañeza, Zamora, Guijuelo, Plasencia, Casar de Cáceres, Calamonte and Zafra). Teams opting to participate in the relay categories must carry out the relays at those points. The organisation will also establish all the secret check points deemed necessary. These will be perfectly signposted on the route and the participants must have their route card stamped at those points too, since they aim to avoid the participants going off-route.

Each participant will be regarded as on a “personal trip”, accepting and obeying all the legal regulations as regards traffic and the environment and will be uniquely responsible for his or her acts.

The event will take place in accordance with the rules and regulations established by the organisation. In the case of discrepancies, the person who believes himself or herself aggrieved must make a complaint in writing and the organisation committee will take the final decision.

In order to participate, it is necessary to be at least 18 years of age and have insurance covering civil liability and accidents that satisfies the legal requirements for this kind of event.

Foreign participants must present a certificate showing that their insurance is valid in Spain together with a copy of their insurance policy.

The entry fee will be 120 euros per participant, whatever category they are entering.
