Hola!

We will enjoy a group welcome dinner where our guides will explain the plan for the coming week and we will receive our official La Vuelta a España road books and gifts from Custom Getaways.

Day 02

Ride and private viewing of race in Guadalajara

Date Wednesday, September 11 Hotel Location Guadalajara

The cyclists will begin today with a morning ride through the rolling hills of olive trees in the area around Guadalajara. The ride will be about 80 km with 800 meters of elevation gain. After the ride, we will be able to shower at our hotel before heading to the finish area for a private viewing of the race. We will have a late lunch and watch the race on TV before the racers pass in front of us on their way to the finish line!

Since the finish of today’s stage will be in the same town as our hotel, we will be able to walk back to our hotel. You can explore the area and find a place for dinner with some of your new friends.

Day 03

Ride and VIP viewing of stage finish

Today will be another day of gorgeous scenery as the race winds into the mountains. Today’s ride will have about 1,100 meters of elevation gain and the long ride will be approximately 90 km. We will finish the ride near the finish of today’s stage at Becerril de la Sierra.

After our ride, we will find a place for lunch and head into the VIP venue to view the finish of today’s stage. The VIP area serves snacks and drinks, has TVs to follow the race and offers private restrooms. It is a great way to see the race!

Following the end of the stage, we will transfer to our new hotel in Avila. We’ll enjoy another group dinner featuring local cuisine.

Day 04

Start Village and ride

Date Friday, September 13 Hotel Location Avila

Today we visit the start village in Avila, the town where we are staying. We should be able to walk to the village, where you can watch the riders sign in for the day and walk around the team bus area.

This is always one of the favorite activities for our guests as you see the racers come out of the team buses and jump on their bikes. Some guests get autographs and pictures with the pros.

After the racers depart, we will ride approximately 70 km on flat terrain to Segovia, a beautiful town where we will explore the area. Tonight’s dinner will be on your own.
