CYCLING IN THE SIERRA NEVADA, SPAIN. WHAT DO YOU WANT MORE?
Cycling in the area of the Sierra Nevada, the south of Spain, beautiful rides through a rough and varied scenery. This area has it all: challenging ascents (and descents off course), beautiful rides through white mountain villages (pueblos blancos), olive fields, national parks and rides to the sea. Where it starts? Straight from your hotel!
The program of a basic and luxury package is the same, the difference is the accommodation (basic is a 2-star hotel and luxury a 3-star hotel). Below a program of a week which should be taken as a guideline (as we will customize the routes at your level/wishes/requirements).
Day 1: Arrival day at the hotel, introduction of Road Cycling Holiday in Spain and a (short) ride in the area of Granada to get used to the bike and the Spanish roads.
Day 2: Ride through the 'Vega of Granada' (agriculture area) and the first ascents of the week.
Day 3: This day we will make a ride through the 'Valle of Lecrin'. A beautiful green valley with a lot of fruit trees.
Day 4: A ride through a national park and along one of the many artificial lakes in the area. During this ride you sometimes feel as though you are alone in the world.
Day 5: This day the ride will bring us to Guadix, famous because of the houses in the rocks.
Day 6: On this day, we will make the 'Queens ride'. We will start the ride (after a warming up off course) with a tough ascent, after which we cycle through natural parks around the city of Granada. At the end, we will have stunning views of La Alhambra (the famous palaces). The other ride is to the ski village Pradellano at 2.100 meter altitude, where we will take the 'old route' along Güéjar Sierra.
Day 7: Unfortunately departure day.
Please note: we aim to be flexible regarding start and finnish day in order to allow you to find the best flights.
Every morning after breakfast, we will discuss the ride of the day, check the bikes and leave between 9 - 10 a.m. A ride will take about 4 to 5 hours (80-140 km per day and if you want even more). We will be back at the hotel between 2 - 5 p.m. The perfect time for great Spanish lunch in one of the local restaurants in the village or at the hotel.
