Known as the place for the winter cycling training camps of the pro’s. But also for those with a little less talent this area is one of the best places to visit for your cycle adventure. With a terrain which boasts the beauty of variability and more than 300 days of sunshine a year, this area is a must visit for every travelling cyclist. Especially for those who get that little bit of extra energy from a stunning mountain scenery.

In this area, below Alicante, every climb will be rewarded with stunning panoramas. So closed by the Mediterranean sea will give you an extra boost. Especially the col de Rates, Port de Tudons, Sierra Aitana and Guadalest are some must visits! However, there are so many options in this region. Many of these climbs are fairly steady from 6 to 15 kilometres long. The quality of the asphalt is great and especially when you go more inland there are also long flat lines. This creates tons of route possibilities and makes it popular for riders of all levels.

And with more than 300 days of sunshine and an average temperature of 18 degrees you can skip a real winter here. Cycling can also be easily combined with a family holiday trip since there is a lot to do and to visit. Especially with the beautiful coast-line and cities like Valencia and Alicante nearby. So, the perfect climate and endless terrain options are not the only reasons to visit the Costa Blanca.
