Early season road conditioning in Andalucia, Spain.

Road biking, on Sierra Contraviesa, Andalucia, Spain

Join us for some of the best road cycling  to be had anywhere, here in hills of southern Spain.

Whether you are training for an event such as the “L’etap du tour” or just want to improve fitness levels, we can provide the perfect venue for you. Your host, David Isaacs is a biology graduate from the Unviversity of Lancaster and well placed to offer training advice.

There are a wide variety of cycling routes in this part of Andalucia – inland, coastal, or mountain – and, with a great all year round climate, this area is an ideal training base.

Our advantages include:

  • hills of the Sierra Nevada and Andalucia
  • low traffic density and excellent road surfaces
  • best climate in Europe, allowing year round road cycling.
  • fantastic scenery
  • lower cost of living than many of the traditional road biking resorts, such as Mallorca.

Our summer high altitude mountain biking programme will be running again between June and mid-September. We have run this highly popular programme every year since 2004 – see report.

Cycling at this altitude means we can avoid the worst of the heat and has the additional advantage of raising your red blood cell count, and therefore your fitness levels.

The majority of the rides will be at over 2000 metres altitude, culminating in a ride to the top of Pico Veleta – mainland Spain’s second highest mountain at 3400 metres (10,300 feet) – and a 3100metre (10,300 ft.) descent to Orgiva.

We will spend 2 nights at the Refugio Poqueira at 2,500 metres. This a very comfortable refiugo, with bar, restaurant, reading room, kitchen and sun terraces, with dormitory type bedrooms – a fantastic place to stay. The other nights will be spent at our base in Orgiva.

Cost is only £440 for the week (why pay more for an inferior holiday, with the big operators), this includes guiding for the week and transfers, accommodation (including 2 nights at the Refugio), breakfast and a packed lunch when required. Costs £180 per person per week for non cycling clients.
