Valencia is where it all started for Vuelta and is one of favourite places to ride. We’re not the only ones; our base is in L’Eliana just outside the city, where Alberto Contador has a house that gives him easy access for training in the beautiful and quiet roads of the Serras Calderona and Cazorla. We’ll do some great climbs including El Garbí, where Contador attacked in the 2017 Vuelta and some flat, through the rice fields of Albufera.
We know the roads well and have some great routes planned. We’ll be accompanied by one of the leaders of a local semi-pro team and on the Sunday, we’ll ride out for a traditional cyclist’s ‘almuerzo’ (monkey nuts, olives, large sandwich and a beer) on a local club ride.
What makes this Vuelta even more special is the timing; we’ll be in Valencia for Fallas, Valencia’s incredible festival of fireworks and fire. You’ll be able to enjoy the adrenaline rush of a Mascletá, the spectacle of the 300+ Fallas dotted around the city, the amazing light show in Ruzafa, not to mention a paella on the beach. You’ll be staying in a luxury apartment close to the centre of the city, with easy access to the festivities and great bars and restaurants.
This Vuelta will be an unforgettable experience. We love Valencia and would love to show you one of Europe’s best cities for cycling and partying at its best!
