Discover Andalucía - a Paradise for Cycling Holidays in Spain
QUICK LINKS FOR FASTER PAGE NAVIGATION:
Ronda is a fantastic base for a cycling holiday. Located in the heart of the Serranía de Ronda - an area of outstanding natural beauty and great geographical diversity, the town of Ronda sits on top of a high plateau, surrounded by hills, mountains and river valleys, with pretty small white villages dotted throughout. From the edges of the Serrania de Ronda, the rural landscape extends into two areas of protected Natural Park, the Sierra de Grazalema and Sierra de las Nieves. Altogether, this offers a wide range of cycling choices within easy reach of Ronda.
Cycling holidays in Ronda can be arranged to suit all levels of rider, from the leisure cyclist who is happy with a gentle ride along the Via Verde cycleway to the avid road cyclist who delights in challenging hill climbs. Our cycling holidays based in Ronda are available self-guided or guided, with guides who are fully qualified by either British Cycling or the IMBA. There is a choice of hotel accommodation: Comfort or Superior level hotel in the center of Ronda or half board at a boutique countryside hotel just outside the town.
Our self-guided Leisure Cycling Tours are designed especially for leisure cyclists who enjoy cycling through wonderful scenery and experiencing the local culture without feeling pressured to maintain a group speed or to cover long distances every day. We use hybrid bikes for these tours, cycling on a mix of quiet roads and unsurfaced tracks, keeping cyclists away from traffic as much as possible.
Our leisure cycling tours start from as little as three days of cycling and many include traffic-free riding along the Via Verde, a fabulous designated cycling route along an abandoned railway line. Our tour routes take riders through traditional white villages, staying in some of the loveliest locations, with your luggage transferred for you each day. Take a circular tour from Ronda or head further afield on a tour from Ronda to Seville or Ronda to Cadiz. Whichever you choose, you will experience the real Andalucía and enjoy Spain's renowned warmth and hospitality throughout.
Our self-guided Road Cycling Tours make the most of western Andalucia's superb mountain roads. This part of Spain is a joy for road cyclists, with long mountain climbs, exhilarating descents, smooth roads, very little traffic and considerate drivers. There is a good reason why La Vuelta comes through this region every year. Depending on the road cycling tour you choose, you will be climbing anything from 900m to 1700m each day; our road cycling tours are a great way to get some climbing miles in your legs and reap the rewards with some of the best mountain descents you can imagine. Every day is filled with awesome cycling and fabulous vistas.
We offer an extensive range of guided cycling day tours, so whatever your cycling experience or fitness level, we have a cycling day tour for you. Our easy rides use a mix of quiet roads and unsurfaced tracks, such as the Via Verde, a designated cycling route along an abandoned railway line that is perfect for families and casual cyclists. Our moderate routes generally visit a white village or two, or a sight of interest, and are great for people who cycle a little more regularly. Our most energetic cycling day tours cover around 50km on quiet roads with steady hill climbs but there is nothing that is too challenging for anyone who is used to being on a bike for a few hours. All our routes are designed to take in lovely countryside and fabulous views. Many of these cycling day tours can also be done self-guided.
Our high-performance e-bikes are a fun way for anyone to get out on a bike for a day. With our pedal-assist e-bikes, hills present no obstacle and riders can enjoy the freedom of e-biking in this beautiful and unspoiled area. Our e-bike routes use a mix of quiet roads and unsurfaced tracks and vary in terms of distance and difficulty. Most of our e-bike rides can be guided or self-guided.
We also offer a unique guided day tour of Ronda which includes a short cycle through the countryside near the town and then a walking tour of the town's main sights with a registered Ronda tour guide - the perfect tour for those who wish to see the unique relationship between town and countryside. E-bikes are a great way for young and senior riders of all abilities to happily participate in our cycling tours in Spain.
