Sometimes, the skills of the human being are tested when something stops working. It is the case of the train tracks that time, mobility and practical reasons have left abandoned and after years the moss takes over its lanes. In the lands of the Ebro they have been able to adapt to the new times and in the old railroad track, where the last train circulated during the seventies, today there is a great stretch of green route to do by bicycle through on a great journey of 130 kilometers.

From La Puebla de Híjar in Aragón to Tortosa in Catalonia, this section approaches the last swings of the great Ebro and travels diverse landscapes such as the arid lands of Teruel, the Natural Park of the Ports and the vineyards and fertile fields of the Baix Ebre area.

During the weekend we spent among bloggers in Tarragona we moved to the population of Horta de Sant Joan where the boys of Esgambi were waiting for us with some mountain bikes prepared to make a stretch of this long green track.

Once we got on our bicycles we went through a well marked forest track that left us in Benifallet in a route of approximately 25 kilometers. The road is very well preserved with picnic areas in various places, tunnels with solar panels to illuminate its interior - in some cases unfortunately someone had torn them off - and panoramic views of this beautiful region that one selfishly appreciates when observing that it is barely found exploited at the tourist level.
