O Salnés MTB Centre

R5 - Ruta da Chanca

The route leads the cyclists to the source of the River A Chanca, a river basin which is one of the axes of the town of Meaño and flows into the short kilometre of coastline belonging to this mainly inland town district.

The river has various watermills, many of which have been restored, and, therefore, at the end of the route it is a good idea to spend some time visiting them. From A Armenteira Monastery, the route ascends and crosses Valdedeus and Valboa. It later descends through mixed forest to the riverbanks of the source of the River A Chanca, where it coincides with route 9, and returns uphill to O Outeiro de Valdedeus, crossing the sources of the River Armenteira on its way. From the crossroads with route 8 which comes from Sanxenxo, the way back to the monastery is downhill, at first a gentle slope followed by a steeper section, along the Caroi paths.

This route is characterised by the agricultural landscapes of smallholdings and mixed forest, with small surprises in the shape of short cruceiros (crosses) or fun, rapid descents.
