For the Cycling Experience of a Lifetime, Think Where, What, and How

There are some amazing cycle tours in Spain, but it’s not always easy to decide which is best for you. This is especially true if you’re cycling as a group. You may need to cater for a range of cycling abilities. Then there are the preferred cycling terrains of the people in your group. And you shouldn’t forget about food and drink, too. Nor should you ignore what people like to do when they are not in the saddle.

What do we mean?

Well, let’s take the terrain of cycling tours in Spain. You might prefer mountain climbs, while others prefer flatter roads through lush countryside. Do you like inland cycling, or coastal cycle tours?

Do you prefer the glitz and glam of city bars after a day in the saddle, or is your idea of relaxation a quiet evening tasting great Spanish wines and some seriously good tapas?

If you’re organizing a cycle tour in Spain, it’s not as easy as it sounds, is it? Unless, of course, you select where you plan to cycle so that it covers all options.

Catalonia – The Best Choice for the Best Cycle Tours in Spain

Catalonia has it all. It’s known as the cycling capital of Europe, and for good reason. It’s home to one of the world’s oldest road cycle races – the Volta a Catalunya – and many of the world’s best cyclists train here.

More than this, though, this region in the northeast of Spain really does have something for everyone. The mountains of the Pyrenees to the north. Flat rural plains in the centre. Sparkling coast to the east. You can explore the medieval city of Girona, dance the night away in Barcelona’s eclectic clubs, or spend a day relaxing by the Mediterranean. And wherever you are, you will never be far from a fabulous meal.

The question is, what cycle tours should you ride here?

Cycle Tours for Mountain Maniacs

The best mountain climbs in Catalonia just happen to be among the best mountain climbs in Europe. Whether you want to test yourself on the Vallter 2000 in the snowy peaks of the Pyrenees, or experience the hill/city/hill ride from Montujic to Tibado via the streets of Barcelona, Catalonia is perfect for you mountain climb enthusiasts.
