Ride the Costa del Sol and experience Europe’s mildest ‘winter’ climate. Part 1 of the camp is spent in the coastal town of Nerja where post-ride relaxation can be spent with views of the Mediterranean. For Part 2 venture a little way inland to the town of Orgiva, a perfect base to take in the climbs in the Alpujarra & Sierra Nevada mountains.
This is a perfect week to ride quality base miles and prepare for the season. Our guides will set a sustainable pace for the group and indicate suitable climbs for harder efforts for those looking for more intense training.
On an Eat Sleep Cycle tour all you have to think about is enjoying your ride. Our trip support is second to none and we pride ourselves on a high staff-guest ratio. We take care of everything so you can savour the ride of a lifetime. This is a flexible itinerary offering riders the opportunity to extend or shorten the ride depending on their fitness level.

Our Costa del Sol Ride Camp is designed for ‘Advanced’ riders with optional extensions for riders who want to challenge themselves further, as well as options to shorten the rides for those who need to. To best enjoy the tour riders should be comfortable riding 100 kms and able to climb for at least an hour without stopping. Training for the tour is recommended.
Rides are fully supported by our team of guides and vehicles.
The ride support vehicle is stocked with natural ride nutrition, electrolytes and water. On longer days the team will serve a roadside lunch – a time efficient pit stop with the right balance of carbohydrates, protein, fruit & veg to keep you energized and feeling healthy all week.
Eat Sleep Cycle ride leaders are experienced riders from all walks of life united by a love of Cycling who’ll help to keep the group safe, motivated and savouring the trip of a lifetime. Our Tour Leaders know the region well and speak the local language.
Mechanical support will be close by at all times.
We understand that quality miles require quality and quantity of food. That’s why this trip is half-board and we provide ride nutrition too.
Andalucia is as famous for its food as it is for its rich history and culture. From pucheros to paella, seafood to salmorejo, the flavours of this area of Spain are sure to tickle your tastebuds.
A breakfast buffet is included each morning at your Hotel. During the ride we will keep you fuelled with our favourite ride food. We’ll stop en route for lunch at local bars where you can choose from the menu (at your own expense). Our evening meal is enjoyed back at the Hotel.
