Day 01

Bien Venido!

Date Tuesday, September 12 Hotel Location Oviedo area

Welcome to Spain! We’ll be meeting up in the lobby of our hotel, on the outskirts of Oviedo, in the early afternoon. Our hotel, is situated in an area known for it’s mineral-medicinal thermal waters which come from a natural spring. We will have the pleasure of calling this “home” for the next three nights.

We will begin our trip with a fitting of our rental bikes and a short ride of about 20 kilometers to shake off the dust from travel.

After our short ride, our guides will explain the plan for the coming week at our welcome dinner. We will receive gifts from Custom Getaways including a cycling jersey.

Day 02

Ride and VIP viewing of the finish on L'Angliru

Date Wednesday, September 13 Hotel Location Oviedo area

We will start the day by riding from our hotel to one of the most famous climbs in the world…L’Angliru! The Alto de L’Angliru is a summit with a special mystique that has become a true Vuelta icon. The ride today will be about 26 kilometers since the climb is so challenging with over 1,500 meters of elevation gain. We will ride on the course for part of the ride and enjoy the cheers of the fans. 12.5 kilometers, an average incline of 10% and slopes of over 23%. No wonder this is the toughest mountain pass ever to be featured in La Vuelta.

After the ride, we will change and view the finish of this important mountain stage in the VIP venue located at the bottom of the L’Angliru climb. You can choose whether to stay in the comfort of the VIP venue with food, drinks, seats and private restrooms or walk up the mountain for a bit and find a place to watch the race with the crowds.

Once the stages finishes, we will transfer back to our hotel and tonight we will enjoy another group dinner.

Date Thursday, September 14 Hotel Location Oviedo area

Today we visit the start village in Pola de Allande. Pola is located in the Nilson River valley where the history of Pola de Allande dates back several centuries. We will walk around the start village, where you can watch the riders sign in for the day and walk around the team bus area. With our VIP access, we will see the racers at the starting line as they depart.

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 find a place for a light lunch before gearing up for today’s ride. The longer ride will be 90 kms on rolling terrain back to our hotel. The shorter ride will be 50 kms. The elevation gain for the longer ride is almost 500 meters and the shorter ride is 300.

Tonight you’ll be on your own for dinner. You’ll have the option of sticking close to the hotel for dinner or you can easily take the local bus into the city of Oviedo to explore and/or find a cool spot for tapas or other local fare.
