Over the week, you will ride through stunning scenery on a mix of quiet roads and easy tracks. You will stay in the best hotels in each town, with plenty of time to experience the culture, character and unique produce of Andalucía.

FAQ's

WHERE WILL I BE RIDING?

Our cycling tour routes take you on a scenic journey away from traffic as far as possible. You will cycle mainly on quiet country roads and unsurfaced tracks. Daily distances vary according to the tour you select. We design all our routes so that you will have time after your cycling to relax and enjoy each overnight location.

WILL I BE FIT ENOUGH?

Our self-guided tours are designed for leisure cyclists rather than cycling experts or people looking for large daily mileage. There are hills throughout the region that 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. 

WILL MY LUGGAGE BE TRANSFERRED?

No need for panniers or trying to pack light and risk leaving important items behind. We transfer your main luggage for you so you just take a few items for each day – water, snacks, and sunscreen. We provide an 8-liter capacity rear trunk bag.

CAN I DO THIS LEISURE CYCLING TOUR WITH A GUIDE?

We can offer a guided version of this tour with qualified guides and support vehicles or a semi-supported version with a support vehicle and driver who is a qualified guide.  There is a minimum person requirement of 4 to be able to provide this service.  Please do not hesitate to enquire about price and availability.

HOW WILL I NAVIGATE THE TOUR?

 

We have 3 options available:

  1. Ride with a GPS application on your mobile phone.  We give free access to the application which can be used in offline mode for each day's ride.  The application shows maps and the route in great detail.  We also supply quality phone holders on the bike to keep your phone safe.
  2. Garmin GPS Device supplied by Hike and Bike.  This is a simple device that shows a breadcrumb trail for each day's ride.  Very reliable and simple to use.
