La Rioja is waiting for you!

FULL RIOJA BIKE TOUR DETAILS COMING SOON! Enjoy this luxury guided cycling trip around La Rioja, Spain. It is a region full of vineyards, internationally known for its superb wine, that offers a picturesque scenery with some undulating climbs and routes. Charm is on every corner of the small and historic medieval villages, reflecting the tradition and culture of this unique area.

It is also part of the famous Green Spain, which includes the majestic province of the Basque Country. A fascinating area for you to explore by bike.

Get surprised by the great variety of the tastiest tapas and pintxos on your way, passing by renowned wineries (such as Marqués de Riscal) and visiting some historical monuments, such as the Suso and Yuso Monasteries, considered the birthplace of the modern Spanish language.

Surrounded by vineyards and wineries, we cycle across the gentle rolling countryside discovering some of the routes of the ancient pilgrim route St. James Way, or El Camino de Santiago, internationally known, together with some hikers too.

Some other little towns in the area are the medieval one of Laguardia, with baroque paintings and an ancient wall. Briones is surrounded by colourful landscapes and Haro is known as “the capital of Rioja wine” with its numerous palaces. Finally the snaking Ebro River, is a delightful area with little traffic.

It will all consist of peaceful cycling along very quiet country lanes and tracks, with a glass of wine awaiting you at every turn!

We had a great trip. The cycling was challenging but well worth the scenery, the views and the white villages we visited. The accommodations were wonderful and the hosts were very pleasant and helpful. The food was very tasty but then how can you go wrong with tapas, cerveza and sangria…

Kathy and I would like to thank Cycling Country for setting up the tour, providing the bikes, maps, information sheets/booklet and directions. Definitely, an A-One job. It was a pleasure meeting Warren, Geoff and Maggie. Otherwise as we said, the trip was great and the organization and preparatory help from Cycling Country was superb. A great big thank you from us both.”
