What's Included

Day By Day Murcia Cycling Holiday

We can tailor make this trip for you
Day 1Arrive into Murcia

Arrive into Murcia and you will be picked up and taken to Los Alcázares on the coast. Settle in to your hotel, go for a walk along the beach or just enjoy the sunshine.

Remember this is a specific itinerary but we can completely customise it.

Day 2The Portman Hills

We suggest that you acclimatise yourself to riding in Murcia, with a loop of the La Manga resort and Cartagena. Your ride will take you south towards the famous golf course and resort of La Manga. From there, you will head to towards Portman and into the Portman Hills. You will descend the Green Mile, a 1 mile stretch of road that has a green cycle lane beside it. This is the staple of Alejandro Valverde who lives in Murcia and you can follow in his tyre tracks down to Caratagena Bay. Stop for a coffee in Cartagena (we recommend the Coffee Lab) overlooking the water before a climb to Cruz Chiquita. From there, you will loop back round riding back into Los Alcázares.

Day 3Cabezo de la Plata

Today is a big day in the saddle as you will ride back towards the Portman Hills, climbing Cruz Chiquita, a punchy 6km climb to get your heart rate up. From here, you will ride north past Roldan before you start to climb gradually. The climbing continues on for about 20km before reaching Alto Garruchal where you can grab a coffee at the cafe before a great 10 km descent to Torreaguerra. You then have a 12km ascent, averaging 3% to Cabezo de la Plata. From here, it’s all downhill back to Los Alcázares.

Total distance135kmTotal climb1450m
Day 4Mar Menor

Today we recommend that you ride up the down the coast to the the Calblanque Regional Park or head north to ride the reverse side of Cabezo de la Plata. All our routes are provided in GPX format so just pick the one that you like the most.

Day 5Departure

Today you will be taken back to Murcia airport but remember, our trips are entirely tailor made and bespoke so this itinerary can be altered in any way you want.
