Puerto el Portillol (Portixol)
A classic climb straight out of Ontinyent into the Serra Grossa, The first couple of kilometre's from the town are shallow and steady and the remaining climb hovers around 6% with no steep ramps, making it a great to start to many rides or a fantastic finish to the day. It flows beautifully towards the top where there are stunning views of Ontinyent, Aielo and Xativa in the valleys below. The descent in either direction is also thrilling and beginner friendly, providing the perfect location to fine tune technique on open corners, with good visibility and a perfect road surface.
