COSTA BLANCA - SPAIN
The Costa Blanca and Alicante region is a great place for cycling and is a popular training base for professional cycling teams in the winter. It has a sunny and warm climate throughout the year and has superb mountains for cycling, offering a wide range of climbs of differing lengths and gradients. The road surfaces are almost all fantastic and if you go to the right areas you will encounter very little traffic. In addition, the region is served by Alicante airport, which is linked to many European destinations.
Mild weather all round permits to ride non-stop. It gets hot in the summer but the winter are very gentle with not too much rainfall. Grab your gilet though as winds can get nasty sometimes!
It's definitely an excellent climbing playground, though climbs are rather gentle. You can go as hard or light as you wish. Many climbs are famed in Vuelta a España.
Costa Blanca is home to very welcoming people and a good example of Spanish and Mediterranean culture. Foodies will be happy over here with the abundance of the freshest sea food. Valencia is the home of paella in the end! In your spare time there's no shortage of places of interest to visit be it a castle or a winery.

Puerto de Ebo
Puerto de Ebo follows the CV-712 from Vall d'Ebo, heading over the pas towards the Costa Blanca. This is a short and fairly easy climb, with regular gradients. It is very popular with professional cyclists staying in nearby towns, who include Ebo as part of long circular rides.More
Port de Tudons (via Sella)
Port de Tudons is one of the most popular cycling climbs in the Valencia Community, and is a favoured training ground of professional riders over the winter. It has featured several times in the Vuelta a España, although often quite early in the stage rather than being a decisive climb. The gradients on Port de Tudons are gentle and consistent, but the length makes it a moderately challenging climb; although one which is best included in a longer route rather than done by itself. The scenery is very picturesque, particularly on the lower slopes with views of the spectacular Puig Campana mountain.More
