VEHICLE AND GPS SUPPORTED
Ride at your own pace. Riders will be given GPS devices that include not only the days route but also pinpoint local spots for drinks and food/ energy stops so they can ride at their own pace. No pressure of group rides. A support vehicle will follow every ride in case of any problems.
The roads of the province of Malaga offer a road cyclist 100kms of perfect and lightly trafficked roads. Based in Alhaurin el Grande we offer week long and long weekend (4 night) road riding holidays for the cyclist looking to ride the road less travelled. We provide 10 different rides ranging from 100km killers with around 1500ms of climbing taking you to stunning sea views and hidden corners of the Costa del Sol, to 30, 55 kms loops and 500-800ms climbing. Our routes have been tried and tested taking in important logistics such as the best coffee bars and lunch stops all pinpointed on the supplied GPS route notes. Our 9 seater vans are on hand with spares and tools in case of any problems.
The best thing about non-guided rides is that you the rider can hit the climbs at your own pace without fear of having to keep pace with the rest of the group. This no pressure riding leaves one to stop and enjoy the ride as you wish.
Malaga offers an incredible variety of routes and geographies. From the tranquil environs of EL Chorro – Spain’s Lake District to Montes de Malaga which start and finish in the centre of fantastic Malaga capital with its lively tapas bars and beautiful sandy beaches.
