Road Cycling Holidays in Andalucía, Spain

Whilst road cycling in Spain, cyclists can enjoy an abundance of routes with many climbs and descents on the quiet and perfectly maintained roads in the region.

Each day you can have challenging climbs into the mountains and exhilarating downhill runs with amazing scenery and beautiful but simple things to see such as well maintained flower boxes in the villages, orange trees growing in gardens and wild mountain goats, they also have bells.

For our cycling guests wishing a more leisurely cycle outing there is always the promenade along the Costa Del Sol, and many stops to be had at cafes, tapas bars and authentic, friendly Ventas by the roadside.

See below a selection of routes which can be done as round trips or can be adapted by returning early or adding on extra segments. We can also give you a drop off point, provided by our transport:

For cyclists wishing a bit less in terms of miles and climbs we can include any of the routes below in the 60km to 100km category within our clients’ ride plans. Again, we can add some extra loops to make the distances slightly longer if need be.

There is always a fair bit of climbing but when accompanied by one of our coaches or guides, riders will be told about pacing and gearing in advance.


Road Cycling Holidays Your Way

We understand that everyone is different and like to ride to their own pace or challenge themselves. Costa Cycling Experience will tailor your Spanish cycling holiday to your needs. Whether you are a beginner to cycling or and expert, we will look after you. You will find your Andalucian cycling holiday both relaxing and exhilarating as you pedal your way through the best cycling routes Spain has to offer. There are a few challenging climbs on routes to test and train yourself. But remember, what goes up must come down! Let the fun begin!

Within your Spanish Cycling Holiday Package we can also include guiding.  We can give you a number of cycle guiding options such as personal one to one guiding, daily tagalongs or even a pre-loaded Garmin with routes included. We even offer MTB and CX guiding and hire bikes.

La Vuelta a Espana Cycling Routes

For people wishing to replicate one or more of the stages of the Vuelta, packages can be arranged. These are similar to the Etape Du Tour stages. There are limitless road routes with masses of mountainous climbs to train on in the region.

See above link for stage three of the 2010 Vuelta which is on our doorstep starting in Marbella. Training in our region for people wishing to do stages of the Etape stages in France is an attractive alternative due to the lower cost of bike hire and living costs in Spain. And the warm weather training climate is better.
