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 Alcázares, 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 España 2018 Day 6 towards Mazarrón 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 Alcázares via another local climb “Alto de la Cuesta” with a summit at 352m.
Sierra Espuña National Park
The only way is up today as we enter the Sierra Espuña 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 Padrera 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 Padrera 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.
