Leisure Cycling and Road Cycling Holidays in Andalucia

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 centre of Ronda or half board at a boutique countryside hotel just outside the town.

Andalucian Cycling Tours

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 lovliest 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.

Ronda Cycling Day Tours 

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 which is perfect for families and casual cyclists. Our moderate routes generally visit a white village or two, or 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.
