LOGROÑO is a "capital of provinces", if we pedal towards the North, in 2 or 3 kilometers already have the feeling of leaving the city, to the South is a bit more complex, a highway surrounds the city, and several national roads are launched in search of the neighbouring provinces. We will have to know which choice and above all, which avoid. But once known, the issue returns to be simplified. Those are the only drawbacks, henceforth all are advantages and excellence.

To the sporty potential of the cycle routes that we propose taking the city as a starting point, we must add the gastronomic, wine tourism and non-sport proposals available. Simple walks - which will give to much - through the streets of the historic town, will force us to take the "terrible" decision of choose betwen all the "pintxos" and wines -Since you're not going to end up in a life with all-.

Then the question will be which Winery to visit.... to cite some ¿Campo Viejo, Ontañon, Alcorta, something more modern as Darien, or something centenary as the Franco-Españolas?

So, our proposals are based on 2 days / 2 nights in LOGROÑO and are expandable with more days in the same city or combining them with other PUNTOS BIKE to get the number of days that interest you.

The only drawback... that with such a work a weekend will stay short!

Definition of Format 1, 2 and 3

Format 1 - VILLAGES and VINEYARDS:

  • These tours combine cycling with culture, history and nature.
  • The sporty character of the route is not the main attraction, but is a measured combination of elements that make this category of travel perfect for those who are looking for an experience that captures our country, along with its countryside.
  • This format is flexible and allows you to make decisions; whether you prefer a lighter ride and focus more on cultural aspects of the region than on sports.
  • The cycling routes are between 40 and 60 kilometers.
  • These tours do not include major mountain passes, but instead offer delightful medium to easy country roads.
  • We take it easy, no rush here. We make several meaningful stops and make visits to relevant points of the route, monuments, historical centres, etc. We pop off our cycling shoes and really get a chance to visit sites.
  • Every day ends with experiences off our bikes, including activities such as wine-tasting, museum visits or visits to historic villages and towns.

Format 2 - VILLAGES, VINEYARDS and MOUNTAIN PASSES:

  • This second travel format combines visits to places of historical and cultural interest, yet is clearly centered on cycling the region; essentially mountain passes.
  • The stages are between 70 and 100 kilometers and an unevenness of between 1000 and 2000 meters.
  • The speed of the group is something depends entirely on the challenge and goals of the group.
  • The same philosophy of offering flexibility applies to cultural stops in relevant monuments, or other points along in the route. Our refreshment stops are usually chosen for their cultural points of interest, so that we get as many "wow moments" into the route.
  • When we finish the route, the program includes follow-up activities like wine-tasting, or visits to museums, and interesting villages and towns.

Format 3 - CYCLE TOURISM PLUS:

  • This format offers an entirely sporty profile with cultural touring only after the cycling has concluded for the day.
  • The cycling stages are between 110 and 180 kilometers and an unevenness of between 2000 and 3000 meters.
  • We adapt the tour to the volume of kms that you are looking to reach. This is particularily interesting for clubs and teams that are looking for a certain volume of kms by the end of the tour. For example, the group can decide if prefers to prefers stages of 120 kms per day or closer to 180 kms.
  • The speed of the group is something depends entirely on the challenge and goals of the group.
  • Given the physically demanding character of the stages, and as a consequence, the added fatigue, the events preceding cycling, like wine-tasting, historical tours, are optional. You will be given the opportunity to make those decisions as a group.
