Overall customer rating, based on 88 reviews
We think the cycling season is best from March through to October although we understand that everyone has different preferences which is why we offer a variety of holidays throughout spring, summer and early autumn. If you'd like to see what a Spanish summer is really like then our trips during July and August might well be for you. If you'd prefer to cycle in a cooler clime, we'd recommend booking a holiday either side of July and August.
All our Spanish cycling holidays include, as standard, transfers from both airports and hotels, 24hr support in the resort, luggage transferred from each hotel, high quality hybrid bikes, either GPS or detailed instructions and maps and all breakfasts along with the evening meals specified in your itinerary.
Our cycling holidays are perfect for everyone who enjoys riding a bike. To help you choose a holiday that best suits your level of fitness we've assigned each one with an activity grading system based on distance and ascent. We've also marked each trip with an Activity Rating level on the holiday pages and in our brochure. If you are at all concerned, you can filter the holidays by the activity level so that you'll only see the ones you'd be interested in doing. Some of our holidays offer a choice of routes and both Activity Rating Levels will be shown for these. Additionally, we've included a + plus sign to denote some sections that are slightly more challenging that the overall grading.
