Directions by public transport:
As usual, find somebody with wheels and buy them lunch, get them brahms, or, offer sexual favours.
In theory, there should be a whole slew of 197 Buses from Plaza Castilla to Torrelaguna, taking approx. 01hour 10mins. From the Torrelaguna drop off point, find Calle San Sebastian which morphs into a dirt trail heading up the Arroyo Matachivos to the Car Park…approx.01Km.
Editor´s Note: The above are the hares´ directions. On doing research it appears that a 197 bus leaves Plaza de Castilla (from dársena 30) at 11:00 on Sunday and gets to Torrelaguna pueblo around 12:05. There are two stops in Torrelaguna. The first is at Calle Malacuera 1. The second is at Calle Soledad 2 near the Plaza Manuel María Martín.
For the directions above you need to get off at the second stop. However, if you get off at the first stop and find Calle de la Cava you can head north(-ish) along it past Plaza de Montalban and join the M-131 (El Berrueco) which is the road that cars will be going up to get to the run site i.e. you will have more chance of getting a lift.
Exit Km.50 off the A1 Burgos Hwy ( N320 Torrelaguna / M608 Guadalix ).
Turn right at the off ramp roundabout ( N320 Torrelaguna ).
Travel approx. 07Kms to an iffy go right to turn left roundabout.
Crossover the N320 and enter Torrelaguna village.
Turn left at the T-Intersection.
Turn left at the almost immediate crossroads ( M131 El Berrueco ).
Travel under the mediaeval arch and travel on up the wibbly wobbly hill for approx.01Km.
Turn right…carefully…onto a car friendly dirt track…F.F.F.F.C.P.
