After your arrival into Granada or Malaga airport, we will transfer you to the town of Alcalá la Real, where you will be met by the rest of the pie crew. Our guides will help you to build your bikes before the evening meal and welcome briefing. Half day ride is also available depending on flight times.
We rise early to start the ride from Alcalá la Real, to the day’s final destination of Guadix, famous for its cave dwelling inhabitants. Overnight accommodation is provided in “apartment-caves”, built to escape the heat of the Andalucian sun. Dinner is provided in a local restaurant.
After a sleep that any cave man would be proud of, day 2 is shorter in terms of distance, but more than makes up for it with over 2600m climbing. The route takes us over the Vuelta climb of Puerto de la Ragua, at an altitude of 2000m, before heading down the other side and then west, along the southern border of the Sierra Nevada national park.
Towards the end of the day, we turn northwards up into the hills again, ready for our overnight stop at the village of Trevélez – one of the highest recognised municipalities in Spain at approximately 1,480m above sea level.
Today we ride through the beautiful villages of the Alpujarra region, gradually descending down towards the sea, for that final dip in the Med! We celebrate our achievements that night at a wonderful hotel, overlooking the sea.
You are free to spend the day at your leisure, before the transfer back to Malaga/Granada airport.
