Mountain training in Andalusia (Playa Granada)
Let your legs do the talking in March – 17/03-24/03/2018This Epic Climbs holiday is sold out!
On the waiting list
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.
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.
