Arrival with optional ride to Portman and La Union
Arriving at Alicante or Murcia International airport where we will be waiting to take you to your hotel by private transfer.
On your arrival we will begin by setting up your carbon road bike in preparation for the “Cuatro Fabuloso” tour. On completion of the bike setup you have the option to relax and explore your new surrounding on foot or maybe take the opportunity to jump on your bike and head out around the Mar Menor bay. This is a great way to start your carbon road weekender and get acclimatised to the area, check the bike and make any final adjustments.
Cartagena, Alto de el Cedacero and Alto de la Cuesta
Having enjoyed you first evening in Los Alcazares, its time to get those legs spinning to the beautiful port of Cartagena and its roman heritage. From here we take a route used in the Vuelta a Espana 2018 Day 6 towards Mazarron known as Alto de El Cedacero.
This route also gives the opportunity to enjoy a local tapas lunch and visit the Torre de Santa Elena in the La Azohia bay. Then its time to continue back to Los Alcazares via another local climb “Alto de la Cuesta” with a summit at 352m.
Sierra Espuna National Park
The only way is up today as we enter the Sierra Espuna National Park to climb the collado Bermejo. Taking in the opportunities to stop at the viewing points is optional as we work our way to the 1530m summit.
Look out for local legends such as Alejandro Valverde and Luis Leon Sanchez who use this route for training.
Embalse de la Padera and Rebate
After tackling the Collado Bermejo yesterday, we make a welcome change to a more rolling countryside route today. Riding out of Los Alcazares and head out into the agricultural area through the orange groves to the La Padera and Rebate route.
Before you head back to the hotel its always great to finish a ride at a local chiringuito for a well earned cerveza or two!
Los Ginovinos, Cresta del Gallo and El Garruchal
On the last day our final ride will take us over the hills to Murcia, where we will head for the Vuelta de Murcia famed Cresta del Gallo climb with fantastic view across the city of Murcia and beyond.
Again we will be on the look out for local legend Alejandro Valverde who is known to use this route for training.
On our return to the Hotel in Los Alcazares, its sadly time to prepare for you departure by private transfer to either Alicante or Murcia airport for your return flight home.
