Spain is one of Europe's most popular destinations with millions of tourists descending on the stunning beaches and popular resorts for sun, sea, and fun. However, there is so much more to Spain than the large hotel complexes and all-inclusive packages that line the famous 'Costas'.
Escaping to the countryside or seeing cities from a different perspective on a cycling holiday is a wonderful way to experience Spain and Spanish culture.
There is a diverse range of landscapes to explore and seeing them by bike gives you the chance to explore Spain with its numerous historical landmarks and sample the local cuisine at a leisurely pace in a warm climate.
Andalusia is one of the sunniest places in Europe and one of the best places to go on a cycling holiday in the spring and autumn. The weather is often excellent with the bright sunshine lighting up the white villages that are dotted along the cycle route. The cycle tour starts in Seville and follows the Via de la Plata Roman road before ending in León.
If you want to cycle in one of Europe's best locations for all types of cycling, then put Majorca at the top of your list. Outside of the main holiday season, countless road cyclists are zipping around the island taking advantage of the smooth roads, varied terrain, and high mountain roads. Yet, there is another side to Majorca. You can cycle around Majorca at a leisurely pace and stop off at local cafes, the small villages and the quiet lanes. Majorca is a cycling holiday paradise.
Cycling holidays are an excellent way to see new places and ride between cities and there is no added pressure on getting to the hotel in the fastest time possible.
