What's Included

Our suggested cycling holiday in Costa Blanca

We can tailor make this trip for you
Day 1Arrival in Alicante

Upon arrival at Alicante airport, you will be picked up and transferred to your hotel. You will be based with direct access to incredible climbs as well as pristine beaches and lively restaurants and bars.

Depending on what time you arrive, pick up your bikes and settle into your hotel before an afternoon riding.

Day 2Benilloba Loop Ride

Today’s ride will provide you with the perfect introduction to cycling in Spain. The ride is made even more special as it largely replicates Stage 2 of the 2019 Vuelta a Espana. You will truly be cycling on the paths of legends.

Following a delicious breakfast at your hotel, jump on the bike and head north, passing the idyllic hilltop town and popular tourist spot of El Castell de Guadalest. From here the incredible riding continues as you follow the winding mountain passes that offer inspiring views through the valleys.

Ride through Benilloba and continue north to Bennimassot before the descent back into Altea begins through Castell de Castells and Tarbena. We recommend a quick stop at the latter where there’s a pop-up drinks shack, perfect for cyclists out riding in the mountains.

Total distance120kmTotal climb1600m
Day 3Parcent & the Coll de Rates

Arguably the most well-known climb of the region, the Coll de Rates is a must ride for any seasoned road cyclists. After a relaxed morning in your hotel, join the roads leaving Altea to the north and reach the peaceful village of Parcent. From here, we recommend a ride through the Jalon Valley, where you can take in the orange groves and peaceful surroundings, before heading south towards the famous Coll de Rates.

During the ascent, our GPX routes will take you onto the narrow winding roads that make this region so famous. Too narrow for cars but made from smooth tarmac, this is the definition of climbing and switchback heaven.

All routes in the area provide riders with unforgettable lookouts overlooking the coast. The climbing is easy when the views are this good.

Total distance105kmTotal climb1900m
Day 4Departure

A private transfer will arrive to take your group back to Alicante airport after your bikes have been picked up. Relax this morning and take your time chilling out by the water before your travel home.

How's the Weather? in The Costa Blanca

The SpringMarch to May
The cycling season begins as early as March and April which offers cool Spring riding. Temperatures in early Spring are perfect for cycling and this is one of the most popular times to ride here. The weather gets progressively warmer towards the end of May.
The SummerJune to August
The east coast of Spain is hot in the summer and can be quite humid. This is tempered by the breeze on the coast so you can enjoy some excellent coastal cycling in the summer. The best time to cycle in Spain in the summer is early in the morning before the midday sun.
The AutumnSeptember to November
Autumn, like Spring, is a great time to cycle in Spain. The summer heat has passed and the weather becomes cooler. All through Autumn you will find ideal conditions for a ride and the crowds will be reduced after the busy summer period.
The WinterDecember to February
Winters are generally colder in this region of Spain however you can still enjoy some perfect riding. With temperatures reaching 17 degrees in December last year, there is never a bad time to visit the Costa Blanca.
