Alicante Cycling tour SPAIN

May 13 - 21, 2022

Explore the Alicante region of Spain by bike on this 9-day Tour

Alicante is one of the most popular winter training camp destinations in Europe for Pro cycling teams. With great weather and routes, arguably it is the second most popular winter training destination after Mallorca Spain.

 

On this tour you'll ride Puerto de la Carrasqueta, Vall d’Ebo, Coll de Rates, and other legendary cycling climbs! Coll de Rates is the most popular and perhaps the most scenic climb of the area. Plan to upload your ride to Strava so you can compare your climbing time with the Pro riders 😊  In between rides, you'll stay overnight in the towns of Alicante, Alcoi, Denia, and Calpe, and we'll give you plenty of time to explore and relax or ride some more!

 

Your leaders on this 9-day HC Bike Tour are founder Aigars Paegle and our photographer/SAG van driver. All you need to do is to arrive at the Alicante airport and you are off – we take care of all the details, so you can fully enjoy your trip, whether that means riding hard, relaxing deeply or doing some of both. As always, your HC Bike Tours` team will provide you with a complete detailed itinerary, planning the best routes based on our 'insider knowledge' of local routes and of course make all arrangements for your stay.

 

Remember, we keep our bike trips flexible to meet your needs! You can ride as much or as little as you wish, you can even modify the itinerary 'on the fly' during the tour – we will support your needs throughout your trip.
