Why choose Ronda for your Road Cycling Retreat?

Most important of all, there is great scope for different elements of cycling in Spain - challenge yourself on dramatic climbs and be rewarded with long, descents that are some of the best in Europe.

  • Immaculate roads - The roads are quiet and the tarmac surfaces are in excellent condition - they ride like silk compared to what you probably endure at home!

  • Tasty refuelling en-route - Traditional white villages dotted through the mountains and popular roadside "ventas"  make excellent lunch and coffee stops. Try out local specialties and classic tapas - save the beers for post-ride!

  • Quality accommodation & meals - See right - the Hotel Molino del Puente.
