Day 1
Seville

Arrive in Seville at your leisure, flights are not included for this challenge to give you flexibility. We will give you an option to have your bikes driven over or you can arrange to fly with your bike if you prefer. We will meet in our hotel in the evening for a meal and a trip briefing.

Day 2
Seville to Jerez ‐ 75 miles

We start our cycle in the historic city of Seville, the route is relatively flat today as we cycle through the coastal plains of the Donana National Park. The park is an UNESCO world heritage site and home to a small population of endangered Iberian lynx, so keep your eyes peeled!

Day 3
Jerez to Ronda ‐ 85 miles

We climb gradually today as we make our way through another one of Spain’s beautiful National Parks to the stunning city of Ronda. The city lays perched upon a canyon, you will be free to explore its wonders in the evening.

Day 4
Ronda to Malaga ‐ 80 miles

Today is mostly downhill as we cycle through traditional Spanish countryside and mountain passes on our way to the seaside city of Malaga. Our hotel is just along the coast so you may have time for a quick dip!

Day 5
Malaga to Granada: ‐ 80 miles

Our final day in the saddle and a tough day of climbing as we take on the peaks of the Sierra Nevada National Park before celebrating our finish in the Moorish city of Granada. Granada is home to the famous Alhambra Palace – definitely worth a visit.

Day 6
Granada

The day is yours to make your onward journey home or enjoy all that Granada has to offer. The bikes will be transported back in our lorry if you opted for them to be collected before departure otherwise you will need to arrange for them to be taken on your flight home
