Plan your cycling holiday in Spain, and even better, on the Costa Blanca!
Whether you like mountain biking or road cycling is your passion, Spain and especially our area in the Costa Blanca region offers you a great location for your cycling holiday in Spain. This area has spectacular routes, with flat coastal routes through beautiful towns and villages. Or alternatively you can opt for either heavy or less strenuous peaks in the mountainous province of Alicante.
Cycling families and groups of friends regularly stay at Agritourism Refugio Marnes who, besides being happy to ride a bike, also want to spend their holidays in a beautiful place. Refugio Marnes is an Agriturismo or Casa Rural as it is called in Spain. That means it is located in the countryside in the mountains of Alicante. Yet within 20 minutes you are on the lively Costa Blanca. We say it is ‘the best of both worlds’
Your road cycling holidays in Spain
Road cycling is a very popular pastime in this area of Spain. The Vuelta often passes through this region and several professional teams base their winter training camps over here. This means that you can rent excellent equipment and guided routes are available. Perhaps more important, motorists are used to cyclists, and are considerate. If you just want to enjoy the scenery of the Costa Blanca, why not try a 10 mile exciting ride downhill to the coast, and do some sightseeing. On this webpage you can find out about several interesting road cycling tours.
