A Typical Week

Below is a description of a typical week for a keen rider who trains regularly. Our rides will be adjusted so everyone gets to enjoy the area within their comfort zone but this is a typical example.......  

This is only an example of a weeks riding with us. We have at least another week of different rides including many more climbs from the coast and inland.

Day 1

After your pickup from Málaga airport we will get you home and fed before a quick warm up ride for a coffee to a local village, around 30-50 Km depending on time.

Day 2

90 Km 2200 Mts climbing. 

We will leave Cádiar straight into a 4km climb that takes us up to La Sierra de la Alpujarra. We then wind our way through many traditional villages surrounded by olive and almond groves. Our coffee stop will be at the lowest point of the ride. After coffee we tackle the stunning 22km climb to the village of Murtas before a rolling ridge road to a well deserved 10km descent back into Cádiar.

Day 3

108 Km 2600 Mts climbing

Órgiva loop…. One of our classic rides starting with a 45km undulating descent to the large town of Órgiva where a quick coffee before the climb is always appreciated. We then start the huge climb to the village of Trévelez (the highest populated village in Spain) with an option of the extra climb to Capileira which was used in La Vuelta. Then it's a fast run home along a stunning ridge road before another fast descent home.

Day 4 

76 Km 1800 Mts climbing. 

The reservoir climb is a slightly shorter day after 2 big days and a chance to have a longer afternoon for recovery. It's one of my favourite rides with a beautiful climb above the Beninar reservoir.

Day 5

113 Km 2500 Mts climbing.

Ohanes and back. We head out to the east with the first 18 km being very quick descending. We eventually head north and start the hairpin climb to the pretty village of Ohanes. After snacks in Ohanes we retrace our steps before tackling the challenging ascent back into Cádiar.

Day 6

112 Km 2600 Mts climbing. 

If everyone is still feeling good we will ride to Puerto de la Ragua (shorter option available) our highest road in the area at 2000 metres. This will be followed by a brilliant 16 km descent down to lunch and then an amazing winding up and down roller coaster road to get us back to base.

Day 7

70 Km 1700 Mts climbing. 

The 18km climb…….for the last day we will head down towards the coast for a quick look at the sea. After a quick caffeine hit if needed, we will head inland for the 18km climb up to the Haza del Lino restaurant for a regroup and a last day cruise along the ridge before a very welcome 10km drop back into Cádiar.
