Based in the centre of the beautiful city of Granada at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains, this tour takes you on 4 varied, scenic and challenging loop rides on roads carefully chosen by us using our local knowledge.

Rides are in the morning and get back early afternoon giving you plenty of time to relax, recover and explore the wonderful city. Being a short tour of 5 days in total, it should appeal to those of you who are looking to get some quality riding in on challenging roads over an extended weekend. An ideal fixed based training camp.

The loops take us out of Granada (easy to cycle in and out of with our local knowledge) onto the silky smooth asphalt roads, passing olive and orange groves and white villages galore. As a final test on the last day of riding, you ascend the infamous "Pico Veleta" of the Sierra Nevada, Europe´s highest road. Plus you have the chance to ride other famous local climbs used in previous La Vuelta's and the roads where the pros train (Movistar, Garmin, Lotto and Peter Sagan with his Bora Hansgrohe team).
