CyclingUP in Andalusia







You are visitor nr.

Road cycling in the mountains of Andalusia is great. The number of climbs is huge. The landscape is varied and changes, often unexpectedly and at close range, from semi-desert to lush green. This nature is adorned by villages with houses that are almost all white. Panoramic views are numerous. There are many quiet roads with a surprisingly good surface. Too bad that these roads are often wider than necessary and therefore less idyllic. What also contributes to the pleasure of biking here is the driving style of the Spaniards: without hurry and careful.
