Like all of our Mollydoo cycling holidays, we like to get out to the destination and test ride all of the routes, hotels, and of course the food. This ensures when our clients get out there, we have the peace of mind that they will be well taken care of and enjoy their cycling holiday.
This trip, organised by our friends at the Spanish Tourist Board, was no different. We were provided with a number of specialist tour guides, who had great knowledge of the areas we visited, and were professional and experienced as always.
The Principality of Asturias, a region of northwest Spain, is known for its rugged coast, mountains, religious sites and medieval architecture. Its capital Oviedo is a beautiful city with deep spanish history, traditional architecture and a must place to vist for anyone wanting to experience authentic Spanish cuisine, with its abundance of inviting Asturias restaurants. Oviedo, also has its own Mountain, Narranco, which was host to stage 9 of the 2016 Vuelta Espania where David De La Cruz took away the red jersey from Nairo Quintana.
We have been providing Tenerife Cycling Camps, Holidays and Daily Rides in South Tenerife for 2 years now and have certainly seen an increase in Cyclist to this Volcanic Island. Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and probably one of the most demanding for the cyclist. Why, simply because it hosts Teide, the highest point in Spain, at 3,700+ metres and a potential 2,300+ m of climbing for the cyclist.
Mollydoo is delighted to introduce an additional destination to our Beach & Bike Holiday Packages, Salou. As usual, our B&B packages are put together with the family in mind and also include a minimum of 3 carefully designed fully supported and guided cycling tours.
