Self Guided Cycling Tours in Spain

Our self guided cycling tours are a fantastic way to explore the unspoilt countryside and chartacterful white villages of Andalucia.

Leisure Cycling Tours

We have designed our self guided Leisure Cycling Tours (Andalucian White Village Tours) especially for leisure cyclists who are looking to enjoy the peace and quiet of rural Spain. They are the perfect opportunity to experience the wonderful scenery and local Andalucian village culture - no time pressures and manageable daily distances, riding on a mix of quiet roads and country tracks. Tours range from 3 cycling days upwards on hybrid bikes or e-bikes. Click on the large picture thumbnails below to read detailed Fact Sheets about each of our Leisure Cycling Tours.

Road Cycling Tours

If your preference is for tougher days out on the bike, covering good mileage and including plenty of hill-climbing, then take a look at our Sport Road Cycling Tours page. These tours use carbon-framed road bikes and ride wholely on the roads.

Dates and Availability

Self guided cycling tour dates are very flexible – just tell us when you wish to travel and we will organise your trip accordingly.

Wondering if a Self Guided Cycling Tour is suitable for You?

  • Will I be fit enough?

    Will I be fit enough? – this area is mountainous, so each day will include some hill climbs but they are pefectly do-able for any reasonably fit leisure cyclist - take your time and be sure to take plenty of breaks to enjoy the views on the way. Or upgrade to one of our e-bikes to take the strain (small supplement applies). Pedal-assist e-bikes give battery powered assistance at each pedal stroke to help you on the climbs but still give you a bit of a work out. Perfect for couples with different cycling fitness - one of you can use a regular hybrid bike and the other can take an e-bike.

  • Navigation

    Navigation – we supply a simple Garmin GPS, preloaded with your daily cycling tour routes. We also provide a large-scale, annotated map, giving you a perspective of where you are at all times.

  • Luggage

    Luggage – 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, sunscreen. We provide an 8 litre capacity rear trunkbag.

  • Roads and Routes

    Roads and Routes – 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 some 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.
