Cycling Holidays and Race viewing in Spain
Following the Grand Tour “Vuelta a España” with Topbike Tours.
Join Topbike Tours in Spain for the
2020 La Vuelta Espana
Aug 27-Sept 6 2020
Bilbao to Madrid
Our focus will be on eating, drinking and riding, along with catching four stages of the race. We’ll start with riding parts of two different stages, including the final 50k of a flat sprinters stage, before heading to Angliru to watch the pro’s tackle the steepest climb in Europe.
From Bilbao to Cantabria to Asturias, we’ll ride, eat and sleep in a wide variety of beautiful places, including two Michelin starred Restaurants (a one and a two star). Finishing with the grand finale in downtown Madrid. You’ll love the northern coast of Spain and the Basque region, not to mention the seafood, wine, coffee, tapas, et al.
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.
