The “Things Aren´t What They Seem” R*n ASHH

Run No.: 2106

Date: Sunday 21st June 2015

Time: 13:00 (1pm)

Location: El Gurugu

Directions by public transport:

Options are to be collected, by pre-arranged Wheels, from Alcala La Garena train station

Pre-arranged Wheels from “Larry’s Bar”

A whole slew of buses leaving Alcala bus station for El Gurugu / Anchuelo, etc.,

Note from the Editor: Those are the hare´s words. In fact, most of the 6/7 bus routes that stop near El Gurugu either don´t run on Sundays or are highly infrequent. The only viable option (as far as I can see) is the 232 bus which leaves Alcalá (Vía Complutense so that´s 5-10 mins walk from the Cercanías station) at 12:10 and gets to El Gurugu around 12:30. That probably involves getting a C7 train from Atocha at 11:12 or a C2 at 11:22.

Driving Directions:

Take the A2 Hwy and exit @ Km.23 (Alcala de Henares / M300 Arganda).
At the 2nd Roundabout take the 1st exit (M300 Arganda / Loeches).
Travel on the said M300, going straight on at a whole slew of roundabouts and up the wibbly-wobbly hill, for approx. 5.3Kms.
At the top of the hill, take the major roundabout 2nd exit, followed by an almost immediate mini-roundabout 2nd exit (M213 Anchuelo).
After approx.250m, at the bus stop access, do that iffy go right to go left turn and enter El Gurugu urby…F.F.F.C.P.
