We've answered some of the top questions about our cycling holidays in Spain:
When is the best time to take a cycling trip to Spain?
Spring, early summer and autumn are ideal times for a Spanish trip - though the weather varies enormously from region to region. The high central plains experience fierce extremes, boiling hot in summer, bitterly cold and swept by freezing winds in winter. The Atlantic coast, in contrast, has a tendency to experience a bit more damp and mist, and a milder summer than the south. The Mediterranean south is warm virtually all year round. Spain's Islands the Canaries and Balaerics experience very mild winters and warm summers making them ideal year round destinations.
How difficult is a cycling trip to Spain?
This depends on the cycling trip you choose. Our Spain trips range from Easy to Moderate to Challenging , but the largest number are Moderate. This means fairly flat terrain with some fairly easy gradients. Check the trip page for a breakdown of the daily distance cycled and the total accumulated metres ascended.
What's the accommodation like?
The majority of our Spain cycling trips include Comfortable accommodation. Generally, you can expect an en-suite room in a locally-run hotel but check the trip page for more information about the accommodation. We include the accommodation names on the itinerary so you can see where you'll stay (the exact place may change but we'll always try to find something of the same standard).
What will the food be like?
Of course when visiting Spain you can expect some delicious food and drink. On most Spain cycling trips we'll include breakfast in your hotel, but the other meals are not included so you can decide for yourself what to choose. On small group trips your tour leader will be happy to recommend local restaurants and you can choose whether or not to eat as a group. In regions known particularly for a type of cuisine or drink we try to include an experience like wine tasting or tapas sampling.
Is cycling in Spain suitable for solo travellers?
Yes, on our small group cycling trips, as with any of our small group tours, you'll be with other travellers who will likely be looking for the same experiences as you are. More often than not you'll be joined by other solo travellers in the group, so you'll be in good company.
