ABOUT VAMOS!

Vamos! Cycling is situated in a road cycling paradise in Las Alpujarras, the heart of the Sierra Nevada mountains, southern Spain. We run very flexible cycling holidays from our beautifully renovated townhouse in Cádiar.

Our aim is simple – to provide you with a comfortable, relaxed, bike-friendly base for your road cycling holiday in a stunning area – with challenging climbs, awesome descents and the odd bit of flat stuff. Oh, and plenty of fab food!

We chose Cádiar – the heart of the Alpujarras – with cyclists in mind because of the choice of routes that leave the village.

Come and challenge yourself in this beautiful part of Spain with its quiet, smooth roads and breathtaking scenery. At Vamos! Cycling you will also get a real taste of Spanish life if you are lucky enough to be here during one of our many local fiestas. Cycling in this part of Spain has to be experienced, please see our guest comments to find out why...

If you fancy seeing a bit more of this beautiful area, why not try a Vamos! Tour.

We are missing the sunshine, find buy cialis doggies and Sarah’s cooking already. We really enjoyed the holiday, link troche the accommodation, food and bike routes were great and we particularly liked the traditional feel to the house and location.
The high small village to village bike routes were our favourite rides as you have spectacular routes all around. On the down side we found the cycling quite hard as the hills are strenuous but we were expecting that because you had put the profiles on the website and for fit real cyclists the hills will be what they are after. The food was great also with lots of it and a good variety, so we have no complaints at all. I think the holiday was what it promised on the website, our only regret was that we were not fitter to go further afield but maybe next time.

Thought you should both know that Les and I had an absolutely fantastic ‘holiday’ and thoroughly appreciated all your efforts in the hills, recipe in the shops and in the kitchen – wonderful...
We were made so welcome ... thank you

Thanks for a lovely holiday. Everything was great, purchase could not be faulted. You clearly have given every aspect of it a lot of thought. Here are some of the things which spring to mind:

  • good communication in the lead up, mind all queries quickly answered;
  • web site description was accurate, there however I think you could sell the evening meals more. The quality and quantity of your cooking, the free beer and wine, the lovely terrace views and good collection from the airport;
  • great rides from Gary which he clearly tailored to our average ability, good pace setting on the climbs; good coffee and lunch stops, obviously well researched;
  • house very clean, in a lovely setting and no tourists;
  • local bars and restaurants with FREE tapas with drinks;
  • good meals at local restaurants;
  • friendly relaxed atmosphere in your house;
    the list goes on.

We are all having a great time telling our other cycling pals how fantastic it was so you never know you might get some of them across.

Having just returned from a week with Vamos Cycling, ask I can say honestly, purchase it has been the best training experience of my life. The locality provides some of the most beautiful scenery you are likely to encounter in Europe. The road surfaces are perfect, capsule and there is a wide choice of agonisingly hard (Hors Categorie and Cat 1) climbs, climbs to above 2000m, and flatter riding on the coast to do. I also particularly enjoyed riding with a couple of local teams, though by the end of the week, wasn’t much competition. I have ridden across Europe, in France, Italy and other parts of Spain, but my experience of Andalucia and Cadiar shows the area to be one of the finest for road riding Europe has to offer. Off the bike, Gary and Sarah’s lovely house was a welcome home I didn’t want to leave. Every day we were confronted with a fantastic selection of food, in a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. Chilling out off the bike is one of the most important parts of a training camp, and I could not have been better able to unwind if I was at home. Testament to both this and the quality of the roads are the 900km we rode during our stay, averaging 2500m of ascent each day, including 2 days on the relative flat of the coast road. Not only am I happy to recommend Vamos Cycling for a training base, for accessing races in Spain or for leisure riding, I am also planning to go back this year to take advantage of this wonderful location. Thank you Gary and Sarah, and anyone who is considering a visit – stop considering and start booking – you won’t regret it!

Just wanted to say a belated thank you for a wonderful holiday. Thank you for looking after us so well and making us feel so welcome. We really enjoyed the beautiful routes, drug pharm the delicious food and your company!
