Road cycling in this area offers smooth road surfaces along the coast and in the mountains with hardly any traffic. There are plenty of beautiful whitewashed villages along the roads where you can enjoy a well-deserved “café con leche y una coca cola” during your break in the sun. The area has a wide range of tarmac roads throughout the impressive mountain range of the Sierra de Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama to Montes de Malaga and the Sierra Nevada.
Depending on your fitness and requirements we are able to customize your road cycling tour to meet your requirements. We have a great selection of road bike rides varying in length from 40-175km that have anything from 500-3000 metres of climbing.
We always tailor the rides to suit your ability and fitness level but at the same time, we want you to experience the best road cycling rides you have ever ridden. This usually means a bit of effort on the climb although this is more than made up for on the exhilarating descents that follow. Where there’s an up, there’s always a down! Always remember that we want you to get the most out of road cycling holiday with us so all rides can be extended, most rides can also be cut short too…..all you need to do is ask your guide! The only thing we can’t do is make the rides flatter!!!
Here are some examples of our rides. We have plenty more. You can either choose one of these rides or your guide will find the best ride adapted to your level.
