Take the route of the ‘white villages’ on this Spanish cycling holiday, starting in the remarkable town of Ronda and heading deep into Andalusia to age-old traditional villages, stunning scenery and wonderful views, with plenty of local culture and cuisine on the way.
The trip starts in Ronda, so you can make the most of this beautiful town that straddles the deep El Tajo gorge. Then you head west to discover some of the region’s lovely whitewashed villages such as Olvera and Arcos de la Frontera, where the pace of life has changed little in centuries.
Setenil de las Bodegas
Follow old farm roads, quiet lanes and a lovely ‘vias verdes’ cycle path as you make your way west. It’s a region of rocky peaks and secluded valleys, where you’ll pass endless fields of sunflowers as well as sherry and brandy vineyards around Jerez.
This is a trip that’s suitable for regular cyclists who don’t mind taking on a few climbs along the way. Most of the riding is on quiet back roads or on entirely traffic-free paths.
