Package Overview

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 Montbrio del Camp, close to Cambrils  and just 10 minutes from the coast.  The hotel is situated 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!

Ride Itinerary & Useful Info

The Ride Zone

Enjoy 3 different guided routes riding with a group of your same level. Routes and speed adapted to you. Each group has an expert local guide and vehicle support.

All Rides will take approx 5 Hours and start at 09:30 after breakfast and briefing.

All rides below are examples and are subject to change

RIDE 1: 86km - 1350+

The first ride will help to establish the level of the participants and then create the groups according to average speed. With three climbs, this route leads us fully into the Priorat in a smooth way and without any difficulty.

After crossing the Pantà de Riudecanyes we will start the first climb, the Coll de la Teixeta. The descent will leave us in Porrera, where we will go to Falset, the capital of the region, crossing the small Coll de Falset: a road full of curves completely surrounded by vineyards. Our last climb will lead us to the top of Coll-Roig, from where we will start our way back home to Cambrils with a gentle descent.

RIDE 2: 122km - 2400+

We have a hard day ahead. Our second ride will lead us to one of the most beautifulplaces we will see during the Cycling Holidays: Siurana. This small medieval village located at the top of a hill remains with the same aesthetic than when was created hundreds of years ago.

A steady climbing road will lead us to Alforja, where we will overcome the Coll d’ Alforja before arriving to Cornudella de Montsant. The steep climb to Siurana with 16% ramps will make our legs struggle. The views of the Pantà de Siurana will make the effort worthy. Escaladei, another iconic village, waits for us with a steady descent to la Vilella Baixa, from where we will head to Torroja del Priorat for some vineyards landscapes again. The last climb to the Coll de La Teixeta will be rewarded with a very enjoyable descent on the way back home.

RIDE 3: 91km - 1400+

Easy day with only two big climbs. The ride takes part mostly in the Baix Camp zone and its a very uncommon ride for tourists. We will ride the Serra de Llaberia, a beautiful and quite mountain range with an almost complete absence of traffic.

We will head first to Mont-Roig del Camp in our way to Pratdip, a small village where our climb starts. While climbing the Coll de Fatges we will deviate to Llaberia for a 8km climb with amazing views. After reaching the top we will descend the same way and head back to the first coll, from which we will descend to Hospitalet de l’ Infant through Vandellòs. Last part from Cambrils to home will be surrounded by the beach.
