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 head out into the stunning local countryside to visit some of 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, a Garmin GPS, pre-loaded with all your daily routes, route maps, points of interest about each day’s ride and information on difficulty and daily climbs/descents. We pre-book all your accommodation (in small country hotels and cortijos). 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. 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.

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

Our guided and self guided centre based cycling holidays are based either in a hotel (4**** or equivalent) in central Ronda or in a country hotel in a beautifully restored flour mill, located just outside Ronda. Each day you cycle out from Ronda along quiet roads to enjoy the fantastic smooth tarmac surfaces and easy tracks that the area has to offer. 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.

"...you don't have to be Bradley Wiggins to fully enjoy [Hike + Bike] holidays. Anyone with a moderate level of fitness and an enjoyment of cycling will really appreciate seeing the breathtaking scenery from the leisuirely pace of a bike. Throw in the comfortable unstuffy accommodation and the amazing food from Heather ... and you've got a winning combination! I'm afraid we might be back."  Jane & Bob, UK, September 2015

Minibus Support

Guided holidays are fully vehicle supported to give the widest range of route options, as the minibus can take us out to a great starting point or bring us back to Ronda at the end of the day - this is particularly useful for less strong cyclists, as the circular ride options here can be long and include quite a few hills. Let us know the distances and climbing you are used to doing and we will make suitable recommendations.

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.
