“Our guides love the year-round, picture-perfect cycling of these regions,” said Lauren Hefferon, Founder of Ciclismo Classico. “Both of these tours are the perfect cycling escape, training ride, or off-the-beaten-path trip to add to your bucket list.”

Located in the Atlantic Ocean off the Northwest coast of Africa, Gran Canaria is part of the archipelago of Canary Islands. An island of volcanic origin, Gran Canaria offers multiple climates with long beaches and dunes contrasting with ravines and volcanoes. It is a perfect place for cycling, due to its impeccable climate and phenomenal roads.

Cycling highlights on the seven-day tour include: riding the canyon of Fataga, exploring the village of Agüimes, peddling through Gran Canaria's best preserved natural pine forests and National Park, and finally summiting Pico de Las Nieves, the highest peak on the island.

“Gran Canaria is a wonderful destination for a winter getaway,” said Hefferon. “An ideal climate and fantastic road conditions make it perfect for training rides, winter riding, or simply discovering a new, beautiful place by bike.”

On the Andalucia Preciosa Spain cycling tour, guests discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Cordoba and the enchanting town of Antequera, savor the region’s sumptuous cuisine, and learn the fascinating Flamenco dance.
