    Day 1: Lucena
    Arrival Day

    Welcome to Andalusia and the start of an amazing tour!
    Arrival is at leisure today. The town is 60 km from Cordoba and 85 km from Malaga. There is also good access to Granada, Seville and Jaen.

    This afternoon, enjoy a walk in Lucena and discover the Gothic-Renaissance church of San Mateo, from the 15th-16th centuries, with one of the most beautiful Baroque sacrariums in Andalusia. You can also visit the castle and old palace of Medinaceli, the house of the Count of Santa Ana, and the house of Rico de Rueda. Lucena was also home of one of the biggest
    Jewish communities established and achieved such outstanding reputation that it was known as the Pearl of Sepharad. The beautiful city offers to its visitors history and heritage, as well as impressive surroundings.

    Your accommodation tonight is a rehabilitated convent, full of local character and charm – A special place to begin your adventure! Dinner is included tonight at the hotel. Please advise at reception preferred dinner time.

    Day 2: Lucena – Zuheros
    Route: 44.9 km +773 m / -611 m

    After breakfast, we’ll begin pedaling through classic Andalusian countryside with rolling hills of countless olive trees and occasional vineyards. From the town of Cabra our route takes us on the peaceful greenway biking path, which is the old railway where the trains full of olive oil used to pass. Our destination is the charming town of Zuheros, Moorish, Andalusian beauty, nestled in the Sierra Subbética mountain range.

    Zuheros conserves the traditional architecture of white houses with ochre roofs. Set at the foot of a Moorish castle where we highly recommend a stop, as it is the Local History Museum, which has some archaeological finds from Murciélagos Cave on display. A visit to this cave is a must – it is a natural opening running into the mountainside, inhabited as far back as the Neolithic period. It is 4 kilometres away from the village. Apart from the cave paintings inside, there is also a stunning view of the region from its entrance. The cave is uphill, and accessible by bike for the most courageous ones or by taxi from the hotel.

    At the end of the day, savor your 3 course dinner at the hotel, prepared with local ingredients. This magical atmosphere may just tempt you to stay an extra day!

    Day 3: Zuheros – Priego de Cordoba
    Route: 49.2 km +863 m / -846 m

    Today, you will enjoy a day of cycling through dramatic landscapes in direction of Carcabuey, pretty typical white village on your way to your next destination: Priego de Cordoba.

    This afternoon, take some time to wander in this romantic and typical Andalusia village set in the circle of mountains of the Natural Park of Las Sierras Subbéticas. This is one of the stops not to be missed on the Caliphate Route, the European Cultural Tour crossing Andalusia from Córdoba to Granada. We recommend a walk to the amazing fountain, more than 100 years old, through the various baroque churches and a visit to the castle just behind your hotel and accessible by the impressive Adarve balcony. The lookout is also an amazing spot to enjoy sunrise!

    Before dinner, enjoy a relaxing moment in the arab baths of the hotel with a good massage to relax your soul and body.
    Tonight, dinner is not included. We can recommend for tonight the restaurant Balcón del Adarve or the Asador La Muralla, both located close to the hotel. Priego’s cuisine, made with olive oil with its own Denomination of Origin, completes this perfect day.

    Day 4: Priego de Cordoba – Iznájar

    Day 5: Iznájar – Lucena
    Route: 51.0 km +920 m / -868 m

    Your last ride today will bring you back to Lucena, riding through the vineyards in the Andalusia Mountains. On the way, you will pass by Rute, a beautiful village with the mountains behind and a sea of olive trees at its feet. It receives the traveler with the aroma of its aniseed, making anise distilleries a tradition that made it famous.

    For everything that was included and the quality of the hotels the price was reasonable. The GPS routes didn’t lead directly to the hotels and a couple of days there were some pretty treacherous bad descents on poor quality roads. Otherwise the routes, locations and overall trip was amazing
    The bicycle was in good shape with all the necessary tools and equipment. It provided a smooth and comfortable ride.

    In general, we were very happy with our experience and with the service provided by Bikespain.
    Having made it from Ronda to Finca Cortesin was a great feat for us, and we are very proud to be able to have accomplished it. I loved the smells in the routes around Bobadilla, there is some wild yellow flower that had a vanilla-like perfume that was delicious, aside from the Olive oil pressing mills we biked around. Ronda is spectacular, I am glad we took an afternoon off just to walk around the city. What we enjoyed the most was the change in scenarios between the regions, it never got boring.

    Just wanted to thank you for helping us plan our self guided trip in Andalusia. We had to trim it down a little because of our schedule but it was a great time and we are so glad we were able to do some riding in such a beautiful area.
