The Perfect Location

We´re based on the Costa Tropical, which is blessed with 320 sunny days a year making it a perfect location for your winter cycling training camp. The Costa Tropical takes its name from the sub-tropical climate which enables the cultivation of exotic crops such as mangoes, bananas and citrus. With warm winters and long hot summers, the average year round temperature is 20c.

The Costa Tropical is the perfect place to start of your winter training regime and get those important early season base miles in. We´re situated in the famous Alpujarras region on the warmer southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, with easy access to the warm coastal routes of the Costa Tropical. The area boasts lots of traffic free, quiet, country roads, making it a perfect destination for your cycling holiday/training camp. It´s an area used in the by the likes of Ireland´s Dan Martin and Poland´s Michal Kwiatkowski for their early season spring training camps.
