YOUR TRIP WITH US MADE EASY

YOUR BIKE

Please when packing your bike make sure it is

Ensure your bike is well packed in a suitable box as we don’t want anyone’s holiday spoilt before they start. We also recommend having your bike mechanically checked before arriving and replacing any worn or tired parts such as tyres, tubes and cables if needed. We also suggest you have a minimal gear of 39 x 28; compact chainsets 50-34 will be an ideal choice as there is the option to go to 2,000m on some days and lower gears will make life easier! We can arrange bike box hire although this is on a first come basis and we can offer advice on packing your bike. Those who have opted to hire a bike through us will have their bikes waiting at the hotel on their arrival.

However please do not forget to pack your own pedals and helmet!

 
WHAT TO BRING
  • It is best to cover all weather eventualities when packing your cycling kit. Although generally the weather is around the 20C’s, it could rain, and can be cold and windy on the odd day, especially when we are on a mountains day as we will be over 1800m.
  • Arm, leg and or knee warmers are a must and even a pair of lightweight tights.
  • At least 2 pair of shorts and tops and a long sleeve top.
  • 2 pair of socks, mitts, long fingered lightweight gloves, shoes, please fit new plates if worn and bring cleat covers for safety on tiled pavements.
  • Sunglasses are recommended and sun cream is a must. Don’t forget to pack chamois creams if you use them as you’ll appreciate it on long rides.
  • HELMETS ARE A LEGAL REQUIREMENT IN SPAIN.
  • The hotel has limited washing and drying facilities, (normally easily done in your room) and cycling kit will dry normally within the hour or two.
  • Your evening casual wear we leave to you as fashion gurus we are not however bring at least one pair of long trousers as shorts are not permitted in the restaurant at night.
  • If you plan to swim don’t forget swim wear, and you will need a swim cap these can be purchased in the Spa for a euro.

Some days can be long so if you are recording your rides (Garmin live and Strava-ing routes really eats battery life) please remember to bring a mobile power pack so you can top up mid ride and avoid losing data.


WHAT YOU DON’T NEED TO BRING

Towels either hand or bath
Spares tubes, tyres, pumps, bottles, tool kits, under saddle bags, and nutritional products, which will be available on arrival. We look after all these to help you pack other items needed.
