Sant Pere del Bosc
Specialized Chisel Expert 2X
This isn't just the lightest mountain bike frame we've ever made; it's our lightest, stiffest, best-handling frame—period. The Chisel Expert 2X was redesigned from the ground-up to give you an unparalleled performance advantage on the XC track. It flies up hills with ease, descends with unmatched confidence, and wastes nary a watt. Consider it a cross country revolution, and remember, this is Chisel.
Our Chisel Expert 2X singlehandedly takes hardtail alloy XC bikes into the modern age, with the most capable geometry out there and a build kit that's all business. We built the entire frame from our top notch M5 Alloy to ensure an ultra-stiff, lightweight, and highly responsive ride quality that's well suited for XC racing. We've also tweaked the geometry for more speed and stability by slacking-out the head tube angle, lengthening the top tube, and correcting the seat tube angle. This way, it feels more planted then ever, and frankly, it's stupid fast. We also widened the rear spacing to 12x142mm and included internal cable routing. For the build, this Chisel hits right on the money, opting for a custom-tuned RockShox Reba RL fork and 11-speed Shimano SLX shifting.
This short route is ideal for stretching your legs in the immediate surroundings of Lloret de Mar, discovering the chapels and oratories of the nearby forest area. Ideal as a complement to a physical conditioning session and when you don’t have time to complete a longer route.
We depart from the Central Tourist Office in Lloret de Mar, located in Carrer de les Alegries, and pass by the Modernist Cemetery.
A little further on we come to the Chapel of Sant Quirze, where we join a path signposted from start to finish as Route 4 of the Selva MTB Centre, which takes us into the forest. Once we reach Avinguda Mare de Déu de Gràcia we pass by the Water World water park and then by the Condado de Jaruco housing development.
We follow this track all the way up to the distinctive Angel Monument, a must-see attraction. After stopping off at the monument, we take the path leading to the tiny Chapel of Our Lady of Grace and to Turó d’en Trompa (hill).
We continue along the path until we arrive back at the Condado de Jaruco housing development and the same road we used for the climb will lead us back to the start point of the route.
The start and end of this route is in a built-up area shared with motor vehicle traffic; please observe traffic signals and use the cycle lanes to minimise the risk of incidents
