Trip Information

Most of us know about Spain’s great weather and you probably something about Spanish culture, flamenco, bull fighting and the infectious fun loving attitude of the locals. You may have tasted tapas, manchego cheese and spicy chorizo.
But how well do we really know it? Many know the north and south are mountainous and think the middle is one huge plain! Think again, this journey heads through an untold number of sierras, the most significant being the Cordillera Cantabrica, the spectacular Sierras de Guadarrama and Gredos that envelope Madrid and the limestone splendor of the Nieves and Grazalema ranges in Andalucia.
The Vuelta a España has been running since 1935 and the whole country is a road cyclists’ paradise with untold amounts spent on ‘upgrading’ rural roads into smooth, flowing ribbons of asphalt. The road cycling tradition and culture is an integral part of life in Spain, with fantastic, empty roads winding their way through stunning sierras.
It’s certainly a bumpy ride but we do try to keep climbing to a minimum whilst still taking you on the most spectacular route. This is certainly no pass bagging trip, but one which links the very different provinces of Spain, giving you the chance to be seduced by the ever-changing geography, flavors and culture this proud country has on offer.
Days in the saddle will be linked by planned drink stops in local bars, al fresco lunches of the best produce in the region and stays in a wonderful hotels including monasteries, olive farms and historical buildings which put the topping on this very Spanish torta!
A longer version of our 16 Day Del Norte al Sur that has 17 days of cycling and 2 rest days in the enchanting cities of Segovia and Cordoba. The route is a more forgiving ride but equally as stunning and finishes in the stunning city of Malaga, famed for its great museums and fantastic seafood.
