For a taste of the real Spain, this cycling holiday in Castile and Leon is just the ticket. It leads you from the World Heritage city of Segovia through a rural landscape dotted with ancient towns and villages. Ornate castles and beautifully preserved, medieval towns are set amidst truly breathtaking scenery.
This is a charming part of rural Spain where you’ll want to stop at almost every town or village you come across. Highlights include the tiny village of Collado Hermoso, where you’ll be based for two nights, and Pedraza, one of the region’s best preserved medieval towns.
Then there’s hilltop Sepulveda and the adventure of cycling through the dramatic Duraton Canyon Nature Reserve, where vultures soar high above the river gorge.
The pace of this Spanish cycle tour is relaxed and the longest day in the saddle only covers around 25 miles, so there will be plenty of time to explore and enjoy your surroundings. The route is almost all on quiet country roads and you’ll be avoiding traffic wherever possible.
