Guided & Self Guided Cycling Holidays in Spain  

Leisure Cycling Holidays in Andalucia

A cycling holiday is the perfect way to explore the quiet charms of rural Andalucia. We are very flexible on holiday dates - let us know the dates you wish to travel and we will organise your trip to suit. We offer:

  • guided and self guided cycling holidays
  • centre-based cycling holidays, staying in or near Ronda 
  • week long Andalucian cycling tours 
  • cycling mini tours 

Centre-based cycling holidays are flexible in difficulty level, with plenty of wonderful routes to suit intermediate or more experienced riders. You will cycle each day on quiet roads and smooth tracks, exploring the mountains, valleys, forests and hills which surround Ronda town. After your rides you will have time to fully enjoy the sights and sound of Ronda's historic town. Let us know your level of experience and the type of riding you like to do and we will put together an itinerary for you.

Our self guided cycling tours begin in Ronda and then you head out into the unspoilt Sierra de Grazalema Natual Park and beyond to enjoy the stunning local countryside at your own pace. You will stay at small country hotels and cortijos and visit the area’s most charming white villages. Alternatively, you can take a luxury spa tour, interspersing your cycling days with relaxing treatments in beautiful spa and 4* hotels. On all our cycling tours, we provide the bikes and route maps, pre-book your accommodation and transport your luggage between overnight stops.

Our cycling holidays and cycling tours are designed for leisure cyclists, rather than superfit roadies. Whilst western Andalucia’s Serrania de Ronda region is naturally mountainous and each day’s riding will have some hills to climb, we keep the daily distances down to a manageable level and don’t expect you to race up or down mountain passes each day. Our hybrid bikes are comfortable and easy to ride, with great gearing for climbing the hills and hydraulic disc brakes to help you negotiate the descents. This area is rural and unspoilt and you will rarely see more than a minimal amount of traffic on the roads or find yourself on busy streets. Our cycling holidays are for enjoying the scenery, the views, the fresh air and the tranquil experience of cycling your way through the stunning Andalucian landscape.​

Centre-Based Cycling Holidays – Ronda

Explore the Serrania de Ronda and the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park on a guided centre-based cycling holiday. Each day we cycle out from Ronda along quiet roads to enjoy the fantastic smooth tarmac surfaces and easy tracks that the area has to offer. Every day you will be cycling through some of the most stunning landscapes in Spain and, whilst only an hour away from the Costa del Sol, you will feel a million miles away from the familiar Spanish tourist trail. Each afternoon you return to our country cortijo, just outside Ronda, where you can relax before dinner, take a quiet stroll in the surrounding olive groves or pop into Ronda town.

Minibus Support

Our Hike + Bike minibus supports all our guided centre-based cycling holidays and brings us back to Ronda when we ride out into the wider landscape. This ensures that every ride of your Andalucian cycling holiday is a great day’s cycling, without being restricted to only circular routes (circular routes tend to be very long as there are limited roads through the mountains). It also saves you the climb back up the hill to Ronda at the end of every day. The minibus is also available if at any time you find you have bitten off a bit more than you can chew and need a helping hand to get you to our destination.

 

Cycling Guides

Our guides are British Cycling and Outdoor First Aid qualified. They are experts in leading cyclists of varying levels of confidence and experience along the roads and tracks of the area. They carry all the necessary equipment and tools for on-the-road repairs and a first aid kit at all times.

Your Accommodation

On our centre-based holidays, you will stay in a country finca just 4km from the historic town of Ronda. This beautifully restored Andalucian farmhouse retains all the charm of rural Spanish living, whilst offering you the comforts of en-suite bathrooms, ceiling fans / under-floor heating (depending on the season), free Wi-fi and satellite television. The finca is surrounded by olive groves and has its own tranquil gardens and a large swimming pool for post ride cooling off. Energising daily breakfasts and delicious home cooked evening meals, together with a free bar for wines and beers complete the comforts of your Andaluican cycling holiday. Read more about what’s included in your cycling holiday package here.

    

Route Maps and Information

On self guided cycling tours, we provide you with maps and points of interest about each day’s ride, including metres of climbing/descent, difficulty and things to see. Then it’s over to you to decide when you set off each day, where you stop and what time you get to your evening’s accommodation. Don’t worry about having to cycle with all your luggage – just pack it up and leave it in reception in the morning by 10am and we will deliver it to your next night’s accommodation for when you arrive. 

Weather

And who can forget our fabulous Andalucian weather....with 300+ days of sunshine a year, the area is perfect for year-round cycling. If it’s good enough for the pros, then who are we to disagree!
