Enjoy a moderate 5-day self guided bike tour which takes you between two of Andalucia’s most famous and beautiful towns. This tour is a feast of stunning scenery, ancient history and Spanish culture.

You begin in Ronda, set dramatically on a cliff above a deep river gorge which divides the town in two. Then head northwards to Sevilla, a city of stunning architecture, great food and the romance and drama of flamenco. Spend one more day on the bikes, exploring the Roman ruins of Italica, just outside the city. Then enjoy a final day exploring Sevilla on foot - the Alcazar Palace complex, Cathedral, Giralda Tower, narrow streets and atmospheric tapas bars

Your cycling route will take you through beautiful unspoilt countryside and via small white villages which have barely changed in centuries. It follows a section of the ancient Roman Via Serrana route, dotted with castle remains and churches of Santiago.

  • Setenil de las Bodegas - village of the cavehouse

  • Via Verde de la Sierra - disused railway track with tunnels and viaducts

  • Castillo de Aguzaderas 

  • Italica - Roman amphitheatre

  • Sevilla - Cathedral, Giralda Tower, Alcazar palace

Cycling Tour Itinerary


    Welcome to Ronda! 

    Check in to your hotel and enjoy the sights and sounds of the beautiful clifftop town of Ronda. Briefing and bike set up will take place on your first evening

  • CYCLING DAY 1 | RONDA TO OLVERA | 35km +461m

    From Ronda cycle northwards, past vineyards and olive groves. Lunch in Setenil de las Bodegas, under huge overhanging limestone cliffs. Ancient "cave houses" built into the rock form the basis of many village houses, shops and cafes. Cycle on through limestone gorge and farmland, up into Torre Alhaquime village, with great views across to Olvera's striking skyline of Arab fortress and twin-towered Renaissance church. A final section through the olives brings you to your overnight accommodation in a traditional Andalucian style hotel.



    Today you ride along the Via Verde de la Sierra, a disused railway line through the mountains and olive groves, with long tunnels (automatic lighting), viaducts and a griffon vulture colony, perched high up on the rocks above the track. Lunch at one of the old station buildings before climbing up into the hills and on to the village of Montellano. Your hotel can recommend dining options in the village. 


    Today you join the Via Serrana, one of many Camino de Santiago which criss-cross Spain, linking isolated municipalities and offering resting places and church sanctuaries. From Montellano this camino crosses a flat, treeless plain which goes almost all the way to Sevilla. Stop off at the ruins of the Castillo de Aguzaderas, a 14th century castle which was built to protect a natural water source – invaluable for crops in the long hot, dry summer months. Continue on to the town of Utrera for a visit to the grand Iglesia de Santiago and overnight in an 18th Century palace. N.B. Today's route now finishes in Utrera, so is shorter than profile (right). You will ride on via Alcala tomorrow.

  • CYCLING DAY 4 | UTRERA TO SEVILLA | 36km +152m

    From Utrera, your ride is flat for most of today, apart from a short, sharp hill before Alcala and an optional hill-climb up into Alcala town, to the castillo and church for great views of the surrounding countryside. Then head back down to the river to cross over the “dragon bridge”. Quiet riverside pathways lead you to the outskirts of Sevilla and then a fantastic network of cycleways takes you right to the cathedral at the heart of the city. Your overnight accommodation will be located close by. N.B. Today's route now begins in Utrera, so is slightly longer than profile (right).


    A nice easy, short cycling day which takes you on a circuit via the Roman theatre in Santicponce and to the ruins of the Roman city of Italica, birthplace of Roman Emperors Trajan and Hadrian. Check out well preserved public buildings, streets and gardens, as well as private villas, many with stunning mosaic floors. Don't miss the stunning oval amphitheatre which could seat 25,000 spectators (in a city of 8,000 inhabitants) and featured as the dragon pit in dramatic scenes of Game of Thrones, Season 7. N.B. Itlalica is closed on Mondays.


    Historical sights of Sevilla

    Take a well earned rest and enjoy the magnificent city of Sevilla, richly endowed with beautiful and historic sights. The Real Alcazar Moorish palace (another Game of Thrones' site), Cathedral and Giralda Tower are must-sees. The Plaza Espana is a beautiful arc of stunning buildings around a bridged canal located within the Maria Luisa Park. The Archaeological Museum contains, amongst other artefacts, a number of items removed from the Italica site. For fans of more modern sights, visit the Metropol Parasol (or giant mushrooms), located directly over more Roman remains. And not to mention a myriad of delightful tapas bars, restaurants and shops. You could spend a week in Sevilla and still not exhaust its charms, so your time here is sure to provide a superb finish to you cycling tour.


    Check out from your hotel and have a safe trip home or to your next destination.

See our suggested KIT LIST for cycle touring in Spain.


Our self-guided tours are designed for leisure cyclists rather than cycling experts or people looking for large daily mileages. There are hills throughout the region which will need to be tackled but we keep daily distances manageable, particularly as you get closer to Sevilla when it can be extremely hot in the summer.

Take things at your own pace and anyone who is reasonably fit and happy to be on a bike for 3+ hours a day will enjoy this tour. 

Due to Sevilla's specific propensity for high temperatures in the summer months, ensure you have plenty of water with you and we suggest starting soon after 9am and aiming to finish before 2pm. Take things fairly easy even on your sightseeing days.


Your tour goes through a mix of large and small towns and more rural areas, so the accommodation style and standard will vary greatly. In the larger towns, we usually book 4**** or 3*** hotels; outside of these you will stay in countryside haciendas, boutique B&Bs or traditional-style village hotels. All rooms have en-suite facilities. Our selections are based on clean and comfortable accommodation (if sometimes quite simple), friendly owners and staff, a warm welcome, bike storage and sometimes a swimming pool too.

A highlight on this tour is the 18th Century palacio in Utrera.

In Sevilla, accommodation is either a hotel or self-catering apartment in the city centre, close to the cathedral, main sights, restaurants and tapas bars.
