Destination

ANDALUCIA - SPAIN

Andalusia is one of those privileged destinations that offer ideal weather conditions for cycle touring all year round. The variety of its landscapes means that you can go from the mountains to the countryside, or the beach to the desert, in barely a day of pedalling. Hear the local people tell the stories and legends from each corner and, at end of the day, regain your strength with the delicious local produce and pantry secrets. This is a unique and healthy way to discover Andalusia, sightseeing while doing your favourite sport.

Weather

It does get real hot on the hight of summer, do not underestimate that! Besides that - Andalucia offers top notch and comfortable cycling conditions throughout the year. Spring and autumn months are especially great for cycling here.

Terrain

If you haven't been here, then beach is the most common image that comes to your mind when thinking Andalucia. In reality it's a huge territory, full of high mountains, long valleys and plains. So in terms of terrain Andalucia is good as is gets.

Culture

Spain is an extremely diverse country, it's a patchwork of languages, histories and peoples. Yet in Andalucia you can get to the very root of Spanish culture and it's soul. Andalucia is an all out cultural experience in architecture, food and atmosphere.
