About the tour

OPEN Private and Custom cycling trip organized for Stockport Tri Club from the UK. The group has traveled with HC Bike Tours for four consecutive years. Their past adventures have included; Nice France to Roses Spain and bike tours of Andalusia Spain and Tuscany Italy. Now the group is excited to explore Valencia Spain by bike.

 

This 9-day HC Bike Tours fully supported and guided trip is led by founder Aigars Paegle and our photographer/SAG van driver. All you need to do is to arrive at the Alicante airport and you are off – we will take care of the rest, simply enjoy your trip. As always, your HC Bike Tours` team will provide you with a complete itinerary, plan the best routes and make all arrangements for you.

 

The Alicante region of Spain is one of the most popular destinations in Europe. We would say it is the second most popular place after Mallorca as it has alot to offer for cyclists including Col de Rates – the most popular and perhaps the most scenic climb of the region on which you will be able to compare your climbing time with the best Pro riders.

 

The group is welcoming a few more guests to join them on this bike tour. For more information leave your contacts via Contact Us form, email at info@hcbiketours.com, or call on +371 26306180 (International)
