Tours (alongside the Tour de France and Giro d'Italia), and it is highly under-rated as a cycling event and a recreational cycling tour. In so many respects it is as exciting, beautiful and fascinating as the other Grand Tours, but with its own personality.

"In 2013 I rode over 3,000km to all corners of Spain following every kilometre of La Vuelta. I can attest that La Vuelta really is as great as the Tour de France and the Giro, but with a unique Spanish character. Some of my best and most memorable cycle moments in my 63-day Grand Tours adventure were on La Vuelta - from turquoise beaches in Galicia, to the mighty wild Pyrenees, to the streets of Barcelona and the Mediterranean coastline.

You too can enjoy the adventure and beauty of La Vuelta. Once the full route is announced in January 2018, the Grand Tours Project team will select the best week for our cycling tour. The start city is Malaga, and the finish is in Madrid, but we'll need to wait till January to know the full route. Whichever week we select, we are likely to have a good mix of flat days, medium hills, and big mountain stages. On each Stage, we'll follow the best 60-100km of the actual Vuelta race route, just a few hours before the pros, so we can soak up the support from the vocal crowds on the roadside.

And wherever we are, we will certainly relish the local Spanish food and wine, and enjoy lovely accommodation throughout the tour.
