Description

A guidebook to eight multi-day cycle tours across Spain. The routes range from 5 to 12 days in length, suitable for novice through to keen cyclists, with options to shorten, extend or go off-road. The tours extend from the Pyrenees and Picos de Europa in the north, through the Sierra of Demanda, Gredos and Guadarrama in the centre, to the Sierras of Nevada and Grazalema and the Serrania de Ronda in the south. They visit the cities of Avila, Cordoba, Bilbao, Madrid, Malaga, San Sebastian, Segovia and Sevilla. The routes are described in detail and accompanied by maps, profiles and accommodation lists.

With an agreeable climate, Western Europe's greatest wilderness areas, unmatched flora and fauna, a history stretching back beyond civilisation, Spain, with its friendly people and readily available accommodation, makes an outstanding destination for the cycle tourist.
