Come and discover this Spanish cycling gem and world-renowned wine region. La Rioja doesn’t need much of an introduction…
The deep red ‘tinto’ that has shaped the culture and land for centuries. Cycling around Rioja will make an indescribable impression on you; landscapes, heritage, culture, wine...Offering road cyclists the chance to discover the area's sights, both natural and cultural. It’s no surprise that Rioja is a land where people live and breathe wine, boasting more than 500 wineries and fantastic cycling where deep red ‘tinto’ has shaped the culture and land for centuries.
A combination of calcium rich clay soils, a privileged climate giving masses of sunlight, taking influences from both Mediterranean and Atlantic weather, sheltered by the Cordillera Cantabria stirs a perfect concoction to create fantastic wine. Curiously, although wine has been produced in the region since Roman times, it was French winemakers with pest depleted harvests who saw the potential of the region. Rioja has now got it all from traditional bodegas and medieval caves to modern, jaw-dropping architectural cellars.
 
However, Rioja offers far more than fantastic vino tinto, it also serves up some of the best food in Spain! Hearty mountain stews and fantastic tasty local meats and game - fresh, simple local produce are the staples. 
The Rioja region spreads itself out along the fertile Ebro valley, hemmed in by the dramatic Cordillera Cantabria and the lofty peaks of the Sierra de La Demanda threaded by sinuous roads to help discover the region. The cultural heritage is strong and has been spiced up by the ancient influence of the Camino de Santiago which runs straight through the heart of it, giving Rioja an added depth of history and culture.
Come and discover this Spanish cycling gem and world-renowned wine region. Cycling around Rioja will make an indescribable impression on you; landscapes, heritage, culture and of course wine...!
