Many professional cyclists come to the Andalusia region to live and train. And for a good reason. The weather is perfect for long days in the saddle and the landscape is taken straight from a cyclist’s dream playbook.
We will explore every aspect of this region on this trip, from the rolling hills where we will be surrounded by the region’s world renowned olive trees, to the mountains of the Sierra Nevada where we will be able to spot Morocco in the distance and we throw in some stunning rides along the Mediterranean Sea for good measure.
On this week-long journey, through the lands, culture and cuisine, you’ll get to know the Andalusia region of Spain. You will experience all the wonders it has to offer, from the sea to the mountains and from the mountains to the sun-drenched rolling hills of the interior, all from the vantage point of your saddle. And while exploring the numerous white hilltop villages and the snow capped Sierra Nevada mountains, we will also take the opportunity to experience the region’s traditional Flamenco dancing and world renowned Iberian Ham.

MEET THE GUIDES
Sancho da Cruz
The late bloomer
Sancho had a late start to cycling, but he has been very passionate about bikes ever since. His love for the sport even made him change career paths to race professionally — until, oh, the pandemic. Covid saw him go back to school; he became one of our guides after interviewing João for his masters final thesis on Active Tourism. Today, he is more than happy to share his passion for the sport with you, helping you on and off the bike, whether your goal is to go full gas or simply take it easy and make the most of the scenery.
Born in the North of Portugal, Rui has been riding his bike since he was 10. In 2011, he became a professional cyclist and just five years later he won the Tour of Portugal. The following year, in 2017, he was the runner-up in the Portuguese Cycling Championship. His talent and incredible bike skills will be by your side during our trips.
