relaxed riding week
If you prefer gentler routes with kinder climbs, combined with time to enjoy a coffee and the beautiful scenery, then our relaxed week might be the ideal one for you. This is a fully guided and supported week with the option of using a power-assisted e-bike.
This week explores the Vall d'Albaida, Serra Mariola and the surrounding area known as the "Tuscany of Valencia". We take you to beautiful climbs, rolling wine county and through stunning National Parks and valleys, to the most scenic villages and historic towns from our countryside base located in the most beautiful corner of Valencia and Alicante. We take time to stop and visit some of the sightseeing highlights and sample the best cafes, restaurants and vineyards to be found anywhere.
Whether you're travelling on your own or with a group we ensure that everyone is included.
For more experienced or stronger riders we can also add extra climbs and ride extensions. Some of the climbs are optional as is taking a shorter day on this trip, and all of the climbs can be taken at your own pace.
Valencia is a mountainous region, with a rich history of culture, civilisation, agriculture and wine making. In the 16th Century its wines were considered to be the best in the world and in recent times are seeing a vibrant rebirth at the forefront of organic wine making. It is home to some of the finest castles in all of Spain, spectacular National Parks and glorious verdant landscapes unfamiliar to many visitors. The gastronomy is second to none and a warm greeting is guaranteed from people keen to welcome to you to the real Valencia.
