Self Guided Cycling Tour - Ronda to Sevilla - Moderate Level - 5 Days Cycling

Enjoy a moderate 4-day self guided bike tour which takes you between two of Andalucia’s most famous and beautiful towns. This tour is a feast of stunning scenery, ancient history and Spanish culture.

You begin in Ronda, set dramatically on a cliff above a deep river gorge which divides the town in two. Then head northwards to Sevilla, a city of stunning architecture, great food and the romance and drama of flamenco. Spend one more day on the bikes, exploring the Roman ruins of Italica, just outside the city. Then enjoy a final day exploring Sevilla on foot - the Alcazar Palace complex, Cathedral, Giralda Tower, narrow streets and atmospheric tapas bars

Your cycling route will take you through beautiful unspoiled countryside and via small white villages which have barely changed in centuries. It follows a section of the ancient Roman Via Serrana route, dotted with castle remains and churches of Santiago.
