Steady March

Sunday 4th – Saturday 10th March 2018

We are hosting a specific cycling holiday with the emphasis on enjoying a casual week of steady paced rides.  Everyone is welcome, whether you are new to cycling or have been riding for years. This is ideal if you are travelling alone or with a friend and would like to join a group of like-minded cyclists.

hotel04-3-logoYou will be staying for six nights on the coast in Calpe at the splendid 4* RH Ifach Hotel, on a Half Board basis.

During the week, we will provide guided rides with vehicle support around the picturesque countryside, on quiet roads in the warm Spanish sunshine. The rides will be at a steady pace (14-16mph) with café stops to refresh and have some lunch. The distances covered each day will be between 40-60 miles. We always re-group at the top of the climbs, and take the opportunity for a quick coffee, top-up bottles and Rachel’s homemade cake from the car.

On your return to the hotel you will have time to relax in the jacuzzi and around the pools (indoor and outdoor) or take a stroll along the beachfront.

We will also offer help, tips and advice to make sure you get the most out of your bike riding.

If you do not want to travel with your own bike, you can hire a carbon bike from us and it will be waiting for you when you arrive.

The package will include the following:-
