Spain, España, doesn’t need much of an introduction. We all know something about this country which takes up the lions share of the Iberian Peninsular. Most of us know about the great weather, the best in Europe even,  and you probably know something about Spanish culture, flamenco, bull fighting and the infectious fun loving attitude of the locals. You may have tasted tapas, manchego cheese and spicy chorizo and you may have followed your heroes on the Vuelta a España. We may know that Andalucia is in the sweltering south, the north is mountainous and green and the capital, Madrid is slap bang in the centre.
But how well do we really know it?  
Did you know that Spain is the 2nd most mountainous country in Europe? Many know the north and south are mountainous and think the middle is one huge plain! Think again, this journey heads through an untold number of sierras, the most significant being the Cordillera Cantabrica the huge natural barrier that runs across the Atlantic north, the spectacular Sierras de Guadarrama and Gredos that envelope Madrid and the limestone splendour of the Nieves and Grazalema ranges in Andalucia.
The Vuelta a España has been running since 1935 and the whole country is a road cyclists’ paradise with untold amounts spent on ‘upgrading’ rural roads into smooth, flowing ribbons of asphalt. The road cycling tradition and culture is an integral part of life in Spain, with fantastic, empty roads winding their way through stunning sierras.
It’s certainly a bumpy ride but we do try to keep climbing to a minimum at the same time as taking you on a most spectacular route. This is certainly no pass bagging trip, but one which links the very different provinces of Spain, giving you the chance to be seduced by the ever changing geography, flavours and culture this proud country has on offer.
This fantastic journey will take the rider through no less than 14 natural parks and many more areas of natural beauty, giving the ride a very wild, adventurous feel. Days in the saddle will be linked by planned drink stops in local bars, al fresco lunches of the best produce in the region and stays in a cherry picked hotels including monasteries, olive farms, town mansions and a number of other historical buildings which will all put the topping on this very Spanish cake!
For anyone who has enjoyed our Land's End to John O'Groats or our St Malo - Nice end to end trips this fantastic journey offers you the chance to explore the sights, tastes and regional variations you can only get my tackling a country from end to end.
This will be a challenging journey giving you 14 days in the saddle, but a trip that will never stop charming you on this discovery of Spain.
