Vuelta a España 2013
It’s the final of the big tours for the year and a chance for riders to get themselves known. The Spanish La Vuelta is one of the hardest in terms of climbing (for the pros). For Topbike riders there are certainly some gradients to contend with but the pace a little more relaxed. Cuisine is very regional, small villages are still authentic and un-touristed, the weather a comfortable autumnal feel with a hint of summer evenings. No hurry getting out of bed as Spain starts and finishes everything late – so sleep in for a relaxing holiday.

September 6 – September 16, 2013
Follow the the Vuelta a España, the last of the Grand Tours with Topbike. After a start in Toulouse we chase the race as it crosses the border of the Pyrenees to France, back into Spain and wind our away across Asturias to the infamous climb of Angliru. Plenty of remote cycling on winding ancient roads through mountains and quiet villages. Capped by a street race finish in Madrid.
