Ronda is a beautiful city, famous for its three historic bridges, steeped in history and generally regarded as the birthplace of modern bullfighting. It's difficult to think of anywhere more Spanish and it’s difficult to think of anywhere more ideally situated for a centre based week of riding the Spanish terrain.
Ronda is a Spanish gem, surrounded by stunning mountain ranges. It boasts a wealth of fantastic loop rides which meander through chestnut clad hillsides and dotted with ancient white villages which lead us to some of the more challenging passes in the area - such as Puerto de Las Palomas.
The area is a road cycling paradise with miles of smooth surfaces and largely traffic free roads on which we will explore the Guadiaro Valley, the stunning limestone mountains of Grazalema and the Parque Natural Sierra de las Nieves. Throw in one of the best climates in Europe, lashings of fantastic home cooked Andalucian food, beautiful, peaceful accommodation close to Ronda and a generous sprinkling of Skedaddleness and we reckon you’re definitely in for a cycling treat!
With guided tours scheduled in March and November, the Roads of Ronda tour is an excellent option for riders looking for a little early or late season cycling in the sunshine and the perfect way to kickstart your road cycling season.
If these scheduled tour dates don’t work for you or you’re looking for greater flexibility with your holiday, duration or even level of riding and daily distances, check out our self guided, 'fully flexible' version of the tour where you can pretty much tailor a trip to your own requirements.
