Cycling Adventures in Andalusia
Having spent 6 years living, working and cycling in Andalusia we decided to move back to the UK to raise our family and start our cycling adventure business, but we've always wanted to show people the real Andalusia. With our friend Paul, an adopted Sevillano who has spent over 15 years in the saddle discovering southern Spain, we run a number of tours early and late in the year, from November to March, giving people a real taste of Spain (and staying well away from the relentless summer heat!). All tours begin in the historic Seville - the stunning capital of Andalusia and home of flamenco and tapas - starting with a tour around the beautiful and historic city before heading out into the campo and the pueblos! Tours are adaptable, they can begin and end in Seville, or they can end elsewhere in Andalusia with transport back to Seville provided.
All tours include bed and breakfast, a support vehicle which leap frogs you throughout the day, the support vechile - which is always a phone call away - will also carry some spare parts, snacks, fruit, tea, coffee and water for you to have at your convenience, daily luggage transfers, daily briefing on route and what to expect, maps and lunch every cycling day. We can also book rooms for day(s) before and after the tour, help with transfers to and from Seville and give you ideas about where to eat and drink while staying in Seville. The tour can be booked as a group with a minimum of 4 people and with no maximum (we can organise the tour for groups smaller than 4 but the cost of a four person group would have to be covered). All tours are private, you and your group members will be the only members of the tour. Tours either guided or supported depending on your preferences, and we can adjust the level of support to meet your wishes - so you can either ride all day with your guide or head off on your own and set meeting points to with your support vehicle (which is never more than a phone call away). All our tours are flexible and can be amended to fit your group's wishes and requirements
Seville's airport has direct connections with London, Stanstead, Dublin as well as a number of other European cities, also coming this October there will be direct connections from Manchester and East Midlands to Seville. It also has regular bus and train services to and from Malaga, the main flight hub in Andalusia. We can also help with bike rentals, and there are many bike rental companies in Seville which provide multi-day bike rental for well serviced hybrid bikes.
Our tours pass through glorious countryside and spectacular places including Los Pueblos Blancos (the white towns of Andalusia) Sierra Norte, Sierra de Cadiz, Sierra de Grazalema, Sierra de Huelva, Sierra de Cazalla, Aracena, El Rocio, Ronda, Italica and Seville amonst many others. Let us know what you are looking for in terms of distance, days and if you have any place or places you particularly want to visit, and we'll build a tour for you.If you want us to book accommodation for you in Seville before of after the tour please let us know. We can also help you with transfers to and from the airport in Seville and Malaga.
Even though the weather in Andalusia during winter can be amazingly sunny, nights can be cold so make sure you bring warm clothing - especially for your nights in the Sierras. We will give you a list of recommended clothing to bring at time of booking.
Tours are open for booking in early 2017. Please contact us for more information

Our Flagship Tours in Andalusia
Below is our example 310 mile loop around the Sierra de Aracena and Sierra Norte while passing through the ancient Roman city of Italica, the walled Moorish town of Carmona, the mountain town of Aracena with its famous caves as well as Cazalla, it also skips into Etremadura for a bit and passes through the orange groves surrounding Lora Del Rio on its way back to Seville.
The map underneath here shows our 450 km loop into Sierra de Cadiz, passing through the sherry produning town of Jerez, into the gorgeous Sierra de Grazalema, the mountain top city of Ronda with that stunning gorge, through the El Chorro with its nerve-wracking walking trail, and back to Seville through Osuna - home of the Game of Thrones 'fighting Pits of Meereen' and the walled Moorish town of Carmona.
The final map of underneath here shows our 450 km tour around 'Los Pueblos Blancos' or the White Villages of Andalucia, in the Sierra de Cadiz from Seville and Jerez. This tour can also begin in Jerez to shorten the tour or it can also be extended to Cadiz or loop back to Seville.
