Mountain training in Andalusia (Playa Granada)
Let your legs do the talking in March – 17/03-24/03/2018
It's time to start a new Epic Climbs mountain training chapter - Bienvenidos a Motril/ Playa Granada!
Stable weather and pleasant temperatures Spectacular scenery. Plenty of climbing. Quality road surfaces. Well away from the cycling circus on that well-known Mediterranean island. Great service with flights and bike hire.
The area around Motril, population 60,000, on Granada's southern coast, a good hour west of Málaga. Ideal for hilly rides of 90 to 150 kms. An awful lot of climbs from 0 to 1500m. From gentle to steep. Up and down. Lots of gear changes. At the centre of the real Andalusia: Through the Alpujarras to the ham village of Trevélez, up the Anglirú of the South (Peña Escrita), up the lonely Cabra to the Collado de los poyos del pescado, to a tiny cafe on the road or a chiringuito (beach bar) for the standard, laid-back, Andalusian experience.
Our base camp:
We pitch camp right on the Playa de Granada in Motril, where our 4-star barracks overlooking the sea offers perfect chillout conditions every night. We can even keep our road bikes - Spanish-made, of course - in our room. The buffet is ready.
Epic Climbs mountain training in Andalusia. Performance. Pain. Passion.
Our guy from the Rhön now has his training base in: Granada and the Sierra Nevada. As our cultural attaché to Andalucia, he knows the tapas by their first name. Motivated and passionate. Devout believer in wearing white socks.
A friendly, cheerful Dortmunder and a huge believer in the dolce vita. Totally devoted to looking after his flock and, once on the road, it's diesel to the top and jet fuel to the bottom.
Lean back - The flight and the shuttle to and from our mountain goal is our problem!
The price includes the flight to Málaga from Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Berlin, Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden. Other airports upon request.
There follows a bus transfer of about 1.5h to Motril.
