If the Vuelta "Experience" and "Ride Every Kilometre" trips are too long for you, then join us for this 3-stage version. We'll be on the route just hours before the pros, with the world's most passionate supporters cheering us on.

Our Getaway tours are being offered in Weeks 1, 2 and 3. So take your pick on which dates best fit your schedule, and which stages you wish to ride.

You may wish to challenge yourself to ride the whole stage on each of the three days, leaving early in the morning. But there’s also an option to ride just the final part of the stage (60 to 100km). Either way, you will love La Vuelta and the whole experience of riding on the route just ahead of the peloton.

Once we cross the finish line, we'll enjoy a healthy lunch and watch the pros fight for the red jersey. The finish lines at La Vuelta are often at the end of a very steep final climb, so they offer fantastic viewing spots for the race.

If you have more time to ride and watch La Vuelta, you can join us on a longer tour. The course will be announced in January 2018, but in the meantime contact us to register your interest.

    The 2017 edition of La Vuelta climaxed on the incomparably steep Alto de l'Angliru, with Alberto Contador winning the stage on his final tour, and Chris Froome close behind to win the Tour de France-Vuelta double. Where will La Vuelta climax in 2018? As usual, the race is expected to finish in the Spanish Capital of Madrid, where we'll savour our achievement in the streets of this magnificent city.
