RIDE AND WATCH THE LA VUELTA A ESPANA
This La Vuelta Experience in Murcia offers an unparalleled opportunity to get a front-row seat at three of the stages that pass through the region. It has featured in many previous races in recent years, and this year hosts Stage 11, a flat 193 km route from El Pozo Alimentación to Cabo de Gata on the coast of Almería. It will be a chance for the sprinters to make their move, with a couple of short, sweet climbs, but nothing too hair-raising.
The terrain in this region is varied. From the glistening coastline to dense forests such as the Sierra Espuña Natural Park, the region ticks every box in terms of training style and preference. On this trip, you’ll climb challenging mountains and speed along flats flanked by vineyards. There’ll be plenty of time to soak up the local culture and gastronomy as well, in the form of bountiful lunches and dinners and of course, obligatory mid-ride coffee stops!
You will stay in the old fishing town of Los Alcázares, just a short walk from the beach. There are also several bars and restaurants just a stone’s throw from your hotel, so you’ll never be short of options for both local and international cuisine.
