Costa Daurada Short Breaks & Training Camps
The Pro's best kept secret destination!
Talk to most cyclists and they will tell you about Mallorca and the great cycling trips that they have enjoyed there, but very few of them will mention the Costa Daurada, just a short distance away, on the Spanish Mainland.
This is an area where some of the best cycling in Europe can be found. Thousands of kilometres of perfectly surfaced secondary roads, winding their way through forests, valleys and vineyards, past monasteries and Moorish villages, it has everything – long climbs, short climbs, rollers, technical curves and descents that will leave you with a grin from ear to ear, all without seeing any traffic.
The professional teams have been keeping the Costa Daurada secret. Over the last few years it has been home to Giant-Alpecin, Bretagne Séché, Team 3M and many others; they just keep coming back time and time again.
Tours are based out of Cambrils on the coast, but close to the foothills and mountains of the Serra de LLaberia, Muntanyes de Prades and the Montsant Natural Park.
The Costa Daurada is an area steeped in history and culture. Its capital city Tarragona, was once the second most important city in the Roman Empire and today is a UNESCO World Heritage site, with some of the best preserved Roman ruins in Europe.
Come and join us on the Costa Daurada and discover a new cycling paradise – the pro teams best kept secret!

There are 2,000 KM of secondary roads in Costa Daurada which are excellent quality; with smooth tarmac and very quite traffic free roads, no wonder the Pros are flocking from Mallorca! There is something for everyone; from steep 18%+ climbs to long steady 10KM 3/4% climbs; all with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.
Once we know the skill and fitness level of you or your group, we will tailor the routes especially for your group . Please tell us about any specific goals you may have as individuals or as a group and we will work hard to ensure we meet them.
All rides start between 09:30 and 10:00 am, giving you time to enjoy your nutritional breakfast to fuel up for the day. Below is a typical day.
