All rides will start after breakfast and will be approx 4/5 hours duration. The following information is a sample of the rides on offer:

Sample Route 1: - Blue Mediterranean: Natural Park of la Albufera and Cullera

  • Difficulty - Medium/EASY
  • Distance 78Km
  • Elevation - 270m

We go through the Natural Park of El Saler, always parallel to the coastline. Just a few kilometres from Valencia we have La Albufera between pine trees and expanses of rice paddies. We enter the heart of the natural park of La Dehesa, always surrounded by nature, with intense contrasts of green and blue colours, enjoying amazing Mediterranean light, finding populations traditionally maritime in our way. We will arrive to the town of Cullera where we will have a short but intense rise to enjoy wonderful views of the entire Bay of Valencia and make impressive photographs (optional depending on your form). On days with good visibility we can also see the mountains of Denia (Alicante) and the city of Valencia with the Sierra Calderona behind him.

Sample Route 2: Dos Aguas: Valencia - Macastre - Dos Aguas - Montroy - Valencia

  • Difficulty - Challenging
  • Distance 115Km
  • Elevation - 1,467m

This route is perfect for cyclists who want to enjoy a demanding route and discover our inlands. When going out of the city it is the worst part of the route, but once we are direction of La Hoya de Buñol, our vision changes completely. At the first 25 km, we go up some steep slopes, where ascension rarely gives us a break. We will cross several towns where we can enjoy a coffee or provide us with the necessary water. The Dos Aguas mountain pass is a balcony to the whole Valencian orchards, the roads are in perfect condition and the descent direction to the town of Dos Aguas is a real adrenaline rush if what you love is to get off fast.

Sample Route 3: Through “Camp del Turia”: from Valencia to Casinos among croplands and orange trees

  • Difficulty - Medium
  • Distance 80Km
  • Elevation - 100m

We will pass through well known populations as Alboraia and Bétera, we circulate calm and safe through cycle paths and secondary roads between orange groves and fields. During the winter you can enjoy the views of the trees filled with oranges, stop at a village for a coffee or if you want to enjoy the authentic cuisine of the interior of Valencia and try the famous turrón (nougat) of Casinos. It is a pleasure to cycle with our bikes through these places and delve into its culture and customs.

Sample Route 4: - Through the heart of Sierra Calderona: From Valencia to Pico Oronet. 

  • Difficulty - Medium
  • Distance 80Km
  • Elevation - 670m

We enter into the heart of the mountains passing through towns such as Náquera and Serra, typical towns of the interior of Valencia and located in the heart of Sierra Calderona, surrounded by Mediterranean forests and cycling on roads with a low density of vehicles. If you feel like making the route longer, the Oronet by its northern slope is a really nice port and with the sea always on our left the contrasts of Blues and Greens are a pleasure for the senses.

Sample Route 5: - Through the heart of Sierra Calderona: From Valencia to Pico Oronet. 

  • Difficulty - Challenging
  • Distance 118Km
  • Elevation - 1,367m

We will look into the heart of Sierra Calderona, passing through the towns of Olocau and Gátova, typical towns of the interior of Valencia and located in the heart of the Sierra, surrounded by Mediterranean forests. We will ride on very quiet roads. Ascension to Eagle peak is long, but the percentage is moderate so it is suitable for any moderately prepared cyclist or to the most tenacious! The Oronet by its northern slope is always a really nice port, with the sea to our left, the contrasts of blues and greens are a pleasure for the senses. Once crowned the Oronet, we begin a long descent which will lead us to Serra, Náquera and Bétera, optional starting point or continue towards Valencia.

Sample Route 6: - Through the heart of Sierra Calderona: From Valencia to Pico Oronet. 

  • Difficulty - Challenging
  • Distance 127Km
  • Elevation - 921m

We propose you a route you can do 365 days a year. We will start cycling northward along a flat road to get into the population of Vall de Uxó, towards the beautiful Sierra de Espadán. The first mountain pass, Marinet, starts at the same population. It is a Valencian´s classic mountain pass quite popular with cyclist from Castellón. Once we have reached the first mountain pass, we will cycle through the population of Soneja, following a perfect pavement road. Then we will connect with the old “national road” of Teruel N-234, direction to Sagunto and then we will take the detour to the population of Serra climbing up the second mountain pass, El Oronet. Return to Valencia from Serra is quick and easy. This tour is perfect for cyclists who want to combine flat cycling and easy ascension mountain passes. Very recommendable all the year.

Departures

All good things must come to an end, well until next time. Our team will pick you up from the hotel and transfer you to the airport, where they will say farewell.
