Autumn Cycling holidays


Summer may have been a washout, but September and October are wonderful times to take a cycling holiday with us in the south of Spain – temperatures drop off considerably from the hot summer months to more agreeable temperatures typically around mid-to-high-twenties - perfect conditions for long days in the saddle!


The Location

We´re based in the typical Andalusian village of Velez de Benaudalla, which is situated between the mountains of the Sierra Nevada and the Costa Tropical. The area is blessed with almost perfect weather for the vast majority of the year. October is perhaps the perfect time to travel to this part of the world, with temperatures of around 25 degrees Celsius in the day dropping to a very pleasant 12 degrees at night. There is no issue with humidity at this time of the year, you can expect eight hours of sunshine and on a week´s cycling break you’ve got a pretty good chance of not seeing any rain at all.

The beautiful city of Granada is only a short journey north of our village. Where you can visit the many historical sites, including the Alhambra Palace, explore the city on a walking tour, or take it easy and relax at man y of the outdoor cafes. Autumn is an ideal time to visit, with bright, cooler sunny days and the crowds of tourists from the summer have largely dissipated.
