The 2nd week of La Vuelta 2018 will be an incredible experience! Starting in ancient Salamanca, it heads north through Galicia and climaxes with three big mountains stages in Asturias. Join us as we "Ride Every Kilometre" of this challenging week of cycling.

We'll meet in the ancient and beautiful city of Salamanca, site of the third oldest university in the world (celebrating its 800th anniversary in 2018). This week of the Vuelta is the toughest, with 2 hilly stages and 3 big mountain stages. We travel north, passing through Galicia, and then enjoy 4 days along the Bay of Biscay coast, in the region of Asturias.

This week of La Vuelta is of different character to the traditional formula of the race, so it will be a fascinating race to watch as it develops. And we'll be feeling every hill and every mountain as the pros, as we "break wind" for them, just a few hours ahead of the peloton.

You will need to be a strong cyclist to achieve this challenge, but you don't need to be an elite athlete. Ours is a journey, not a race, and we'll leave enough time on each day to enjoy our lunch breaks and photo stops. Once we cross the finish line each day, we'll sit back and watch the race as the "fight for red" takes place only a couple of hours after us.

There are very limited spaces on this tour - with the ratio of 7 riders : 1 guide. This small group will ride together and will always have the support van close by – with drinks, snacks and dry clothing.

Riding on the race course just a few hours before the pros, with the support of the crowds and our team, makes this an unforgettable experience.

Full details of the itinerary will be added shortly. In the meantime contact us to register your interest.

If riding every kilometre of 6 stages of La Vuelta sounds a bit much, then you can choose an easier version in our Vuelta Experience option, or one of our 3-stage Getaway tours.

Total price: From €2,800
