Spanish are fanatical about their cycling.
Often favouring climbers, La Vuelta often includes the most fearsome climb of all grand tours, Alto d’Angliru.
Scheduled at the end of the season, the Spanish grand tour fosters new talent and gives an opportunity to riders seeking retribution from an indifferent season. Mountain stages in every week of the tour often helps the climber. Recently, the Vuelta has created the best racing moments of all grand tours.
The Spanish are fanatical, and fanatical about their cycling. Quiet villages awaken for the passage of the professional peloton. Accommodation is always a high standard and Spanish cuisine is abundant, fresh and delightful.
The most fearsome climb of all grand tours, Alto d’Angliru is located in the Asturias and as touted by race organisers “a Grand Tour without Angliru is like a 15min football match or a 5km marathon”.
Each year Bikestyle Tours hosts guests to the final 10 to 12 days of the Vuelta, depending on the route. Typically this includes visiting the cycling paradise of the Asturias, the “Green Spain” of the Cantabrian coastline, the fanatical Basque country and the Pyrenees. Logistics permitting, our trip finishes in the famous art district of Madrid for the final stage.
The official route is normally released in mid January each year. In 2019 we’ll once again offer our fully supported trip catering for cyclists and non-cyclists following the most important stages at the back-end of the race.
Pre-book now is the only way to guarantee to secure your spot in 2019.

We have trips with both riding and non-riding itineraries. The primary focus is seeing the race. On some days, we’ll visit the stunning villages that contribute to the food and culture of Spain.
They are great for a non-riding partner.
