On this cycling holiday, you will be provided seven nights of accommodation in a five-star high end luxury villa. It sleeps up to 16 people in double or twin rooms which are all air-conditioned. The rooms are serviced by multiple luxury bathrooms and a large kitchen area. The pool area is also equipped with a private jacuzzi room.
The routes are ridden at a relaxed pace where the focus is as much about the holiday experience as it is about the cycling. The distance covered in a day is around 70 kilometers / 43 miles to 85 kilometers / 53 miles, and while this may sound a lot, you will have all day to cover the distance.
The maximum you will ride at any one time is around 90 minutes before stopping for refreshments or lunch. You will take in some beautiful routes which are much gentler in terms of elevation but enough to feel challenged. In terms of elevation, you will cover around 500 meters to 1400 meters of climbing on some wonderfully smooth rolling roads throughout the day.
The perfect start to your cycling holiday is the 50 kilometers / 31 miles of rolling smooth roads to flush out the legs from your earlier flight. You will ride across to Orba before dropping down into the Xalo valley which is simply breathtaking passing through the beautiful village of Lliber before heading over to Gata and back to the retreat.
This ride is to spin the legs out and to make sure your bike set up is 100% and ready for the week.
This is a wonderful loop round from Pedreguer out to Pego on some simply spectacular quiet smooth tarmac. There are few little bumps in the road to test the legs, but the route is rolling and undulating, with gentle gradients that add to a simply breathtaking route.
