Spain End to End: Santander to Cape Trafalgar
September 2020 | September 2021
Ride from the Bay of Biscay to Cape Trafalgar near the historic city of Cadiz on our epic two week ride south through Spain. This carefully crafted route embraces the best that this wonderful country has to offer and is timed to avoid the heat, instead enjoying the late summer warmth and offering a fantastic late season excursion to savour before hanging up the bike for winter!
Spain is a wonderful country for cycling with wide well maintained roads almost completely devoid of traffic; what little there is tends to be very courteous to cyclists.
Imagine the satisfaction of ending your ride gazing at Africa across the Straits of Gibraltar. For a true traveller there can be few more evocative endings to a fantastic journey!
Our new Spanish end to end ride will take you across fantastic countryside from the beautiful Picos de Europa in the north all the way to the south western tip at Cape Trafalgar, where you can wistfully gaze across the Strait of Gibraltar to Morocco on the other side. We will take you to some of the most sublime countryside, some of the best climbs, longest views and most impressive mediaeval towns along the way, passing some of the finest castles and fortresses and staying in historic palaces, monasteries and other interesting hotels – of which we are particularly proud on this trip. With an average of 71 miles a day over this 13-day epic you will climb some 17,000m (Elevation charts). It tends to take the format of a couple of harder days followed by a couple of easier ones. You can see this broken down daily and we have also introduced a CQ (‘Climbing Quotient’) figure – see our FAQ page for what this is and how it is used as a measure of difficulty. 13 nights' bed and breakfast accommodation in good quality hotels, 11 dinners, 5 picnic lunches included.
