The Valencia city & cycling holiday is ideal if you want a bit of everything: city break, beach vacation, and top-notch cycle training destination. It is the ideal location whether you want to come for a week training with plenty of entertainment in between, or if you are traveling with non-riders and you want somewhere with a bit of something for everyone. The climate means that this is an ideal destination for winter breaks too, with many of the pro teams basing their winter training camps along the Valencia Coast.
Our standard Valencia city & cycling holiday is a week long break with hotel and bicycle rental period variable for your needs, though the length of stay can be longer or shorter as you require. Standard accommodation is in a four star hotel on the outskirts of town which is perfect for those who want the emphasis more on the cycling element of the holiday, but upon request we can provide pricing inner city alternatives with bike storage facilities at a price level that suits you. Racing bicycles and city bikes can be provided for the amount of time you require as well, and we provide route information and any additional local activities can be added as required.
As far as the cycling goes, it is a veritable paradise. Along the coast to the south the roads are flat, and slightly inland a freshwater lake in a natural park with kilometers of quiet roads between rice paddies with wonderful bird life. Inland the land rises with several climbs up to heights of around 600 – 800 meters, with the proper climbing beginning around 25-30 km from the city. Around the city are agricultural orchards dating back to the time of the Moors, dominated by the famous orange groves. This adds up to a selection of routes ranging from around 65 km up to 180 km, with the altitude meters that you choose. We also offer the optional extra to have a cycling guide accompany you to show you the best rides and pit-stops!
This tour is self-led and the itinerary can be filled according to your wishes. We will provide you with route information for potential cycle routes, and some information about the locality. We can arrange additional activities as required.
