Winter Cycling Holiday (Barcelona)
November 1, 2020 - March 31, 2021€699
4 DAYS WARM WINTER CYCLING
Enjoy four sunny days of warm winter cycling and experience the best rural routes on the outskirts of Barcelona. Relax in your hotel in the evenings or take advantage of all that the city has to offer.
This 4 day, 5 night guided winter cycling holiday covers approximately 300 kilometers in total, with each day starting and finishing in Barcelona.
Situated on the Mediterranean coast in north eastern Spain, Barcelona is the capital city of the region of Catalonia. Visited by millions every year, the city offers something for everyone, from culture and history, great food, the beach and of course an endless night-life. But the real beauty lies just outside the city and our winter tour takes you through the rural outskirts of Barcelona, through the mountain ranges, along the coast and in to the countryside.
Day 1 - Gallecs flat tour 65km, Starting the tour off with a gentle day in the saddle as we head north from Barcelona and in to the Gallecs protected natural park. Following the river out the city this route is mostly flat and around 65km in total.
Day 2 - Molins de Rei Tibidabo down to city - Cycle to the summit of Barcelona’s highest mountain and take on Tibidabo, standing at 512 meters and with panoramic views of the city and along the coast. The medium rated climb follows the tree lined, winding road right to the summit.
Day 3 - Front Tibidabo Sant Cugat, Montcada - Taking a different route we will climb Tibidabo from the front before descending north and into the countryside as we head for our second ascent of the day overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
Day 4 - Sitges - One of our favourite routes, combines a variety of terrain and takes us south from Barcelona to the seaside town of Sitges. Experience the rolling hills leading in to Sitges, the countryside on the outskirts of the city and cruise the 15 km stretch of Castelldefels beach. We will reward ourselves with a delicious lunch at our favourite beachfront restaurant and enjoy some paella and tapas to end the tour!
The winter months in Barcelona tend to be dry and sunny with daytime temperatures averaging around 15-16 degrees celsius with a late Mediterranean sunset, pretty good for winter cycling wouldn’t you agree? Each day will be around 50-80km and will follow the quiet secondary roads as we explore the rural outskirts of the city. You will enjoy a bit of everything from small local villages, the fresh air of the Catalan countryside and plenty of coastal views, whilst being able to make the most of everything Barcelona has to offer in the evenings.
Relax in the comfort of a centrally located hotel including the nights before and after the tour for your ease, where a full breakfast is included everyday before you ride.
