Cycling in Spain
A cycling holiday in Spain is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the culture and passion of the Iberian peninsula. Our Spanish cycling trips are based all over the country, from the hidden delights of Rioja to coastal hideaways in Catalonia.
For most of our Spanish adventures, you are likely to fly into Barcelona or Madrid, both perfect for a couple of nights before your cycling trip begins. The Spanish capital Madrid has a wealth of museums, restaurants and stunning architecture. Its wide, elegant boulevards make it a perfect city for walking in. Spain has many wonderful cities, but Madrid is definitely worth visiting.
Barcelona is famed for its tapas, cava, football and nightlife. Antoni Gaudi created two of the city’s most famous sights, the Sagrada Familia, and Parc Guell which add to the colour and flair of this Catalan city.
Spain is comprised of 17 regions, each unique and offering something different to the traveller. Every region claims to have the best chorizo, tortilla Espanol, jamon or wine and it is worth trying to sample as many as possible. We offer a wide variety of cycling in Spain, to let you experience all this diverse country has to offer.
A Cycling Holiday in Catalonia allows you to discover the hidden side of the Costa Brava. You can visit the Salvador Dali museum in Figueres, eat in one of the many Michelin star restaurants or explore medieval villages, before spending the evening in the coastal towns where the Spanish people choose to spend their holiday. Hidden coves and quiet, beautiful beaches make a cycling holiday in Catalonia a dream holiday.
If you are looking for a gastronomic experience then a cycling trip in Rioja would be the perfect Spanish adventure for you. Cycle through the world-famous vineyards, sampling Rioja from over 600 different producers. Rioja also has a great reputation for its cuisine, from tapas and pintxos to sumptuous lamb dishes.
Cycling from Parador to Parador in Extremadura transports you back to the 16th Century as you explore medieval villages before relaxing in the luxurious Parador hotels. Cycling in Southern Spain has so many contrasts. From its vibrant cities, famous for paella, zesty oranges and flamenco, to its peaceful hills, flecked with sleepy Moorish villages.
Away from the mainland, you will find a totally different experience for cyclists. Our cycling trips in Mallorca showcase the less-explored interior and pristine beaches of this Balearic Island. Road Cycling in Lanzarote shows a different side this classic tourist destination. Away from the mass tourism of the resorts, the bike-friendly roads allow you to discover moon-like, volcanic landscapes, scenery that you would not typically expect to find in Spain.
Cycling on the Camino de Santiago is a spiritual cycling holiday with an emphasis on camaraderie. Our Camino cycling holiday is created with the Pilgrim in mind, offering the life-changing experience of cycling the Camino, but with the knowledge that we have your back every step of The Way.
