Day 1. Monday 31 August - Meet in Santiago de Compostela - Warm up Ride

Cycling La Vuelta

Meet at our 4 star hotel, set within its own gardens, in the famous pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela at 14.30 for an informal welcome meeting, drinks and intro before setting up the bikes. (Please note we will be offering a complimentary pick up from Santiago airport airport at 13.45).

 

It is a rest day for La Vuelta today and so we will head out on a warm up ride, into the countryside on the outskirts of the city to stretch the legs and make any alterations to the bikes. We cycle part of the famous Camino de Santiago, the world renowned route that leads pilgrims, trekkers and cyclists to their final destination of the city's cathedral.

 

Stop for a late afternoon coffee or cold drink before riding back to our hotel, our base for the next 2 nights. Take a dip in the hotel's pool before enjoying a group welcome group dinner.

Day 2. Tuesday 01 September - VIP Time Trial - Galician Coast (Santigao)

Cycling La Vuelta 2020 with Cycling Country Bike Tours

After a good buffet breakfast we transfer out for our first taste of La Vuelta 2020. As an official operator, we have access to allow you to ride the route of the Individual Time Trial (33.5 km) before the pros and under the supervision of La Vuelta! (Non cyclists can take time to enjoy Santiago and her cathedral before being transferred out separately to see the end of the time trial live).

 

The route takes us on a gently rolling (that's classed as a flat stage to the pros!) road that heads up the coast of Galicia. Stunning scenery, we keep the sea in sight, as we cycle the route with our special Vuelta support vehicle in tow, just like a professional cyclist. Always an exciting feeling, riding on closed roads as the crowds line the streets behind the barriers, cheering you on. The sting in the tail appears with 1.5 km to go as we ascend up the final cat 3 climb to the finish line at a viewpoint overlooking the coast. This time trial will be crucial for the race leaders, as the time-trial specialists will no doubt put time into the pure climbers.

 

VIP at La Vuelta Tour of Spain, Cycling Country Bike Tours

 

After our own time trial, enter the VIP Hospitality zone at the finish line and watch how the Pros do it, not forgetting to snap some winning photos. A great way to enjoy the afternoon, with complimentary beer and tapas, and big screen streaming of the race.

 

To Explain - the VIP Hospitality Area – This is an exclusive part of our La Vuelta tour packages, where each of our cyclists have access with personalized accreditation given on a lanyard at the start of the tour. Here, enjoy just metres from the Meta Finish line,a viewing zone to see the riders finishing the stage, and preview the entire race before hand via large plasma TVs. The place to be at La Vuelta after riding the route! Also included is an open bar and tapas tasters for a real Spanish experience.

Day 3. Wednesday 02 September – Galician Summits - VIP Stage Finish (Vigo)

Our ride: 105+ km / 65 miles +

Cycling La Vuelta Bike Tour

 

We take a short transfer out into the Galician countryside and set up on the race route. A fantastic day of cycling awaits as we ride through the rural scenery, keeping ahead of the charging peloton behind us! We pedal over three category 3 climbs (all about 7 km long) as the terrain rolls up and then down.

 

A highlight on the route is the important town of Monforte de Lemos with its imposing church (non-cyclists have the option to visit). We cycle across the finish line in the medieval town of Ourense and enter the VIP zone to enjoy the finish. The chance of a successful breakaway is high today due to the rolling terrain. We also have planned a special insider's tour of the behind the scenes of La Vuelta. See the press areas, tv cameras and doping controls. Take your picture on the winner's podium - a fantastic souvenir!

 

After the race we take a transfer to our 4 star team pro-team hotel in Vigo. See the mechanics prep the bikes for tomorrow's stage and maybe chat to a star of the pro circuit! Have the evening to explore Vigo and her sights.

 


Day 4. Thursday 03 September – Portugal's Atlantic Coastline, Porto VIP Finish (Porto)

upto 115 km / 70 miles

Cycle Tour for La Vuelta 2019 - Sierra Nevada - Froome, Chavez

Cycling Portugal La VueltaToday we cross international borders as we head into Portugal. We will ride the best part of today's race route as we scoot down the Atlantic coastline. This coast and our route is part of the Portuguese Camino (which starts in Lisbon and finishes in Santiago). Take a detour to the town of Barcelos, the place where the legend of Portugal's cockerel emblem was born.

 

A relatively flat stage, enjoy the scenery of the sea and the inland villages. Today's finish is in the atmospheric and historically important city of Porto, and we cycle across the finish line to enjoy a VIP stage finish. We toast the stage winner today with a glass of the local Port Wine!

 

Our hotel tonight is near to the centre of Porto. A must see place on any tour of Portugal, Porto is a fascinating place to explore, with its faded grandeur from the times when Portugal ruled the oceans with its spice trading and era of sea faring discoveries. Take time to visit the lively bars and cafés before enjoying the first class seafood that the city is known for.

 


Day 5. Friday 04 September – VIP Stage Depart, Peaks of Portugal (Salamanca)

La Vuelta 2020 Road Bike Trip with Cycling Country Bike Tours

95+ km / 60+ miles

A more relaxed day is planned today as we enjoy a visit to a VIP stage Depart. La Vuelta 2020 Road Bike Trip with Cycling Country Bike ToursAfter breakfast, we head into Portugal's interior to the Stage depart in the monumental town centre of Viseu. A great chance to see, and often speak to, your favourite bike star as they get ready to race! Wander the area seeing the team buses, the depart village and the immense logistical set up of a Grand Tour.

 

*To Explain – The Vuelta Depart Village is an added perk of our VIP hospitality package. Each day the teams must sign on to start the day in a presentation, but prior this, the riders are warming up, giving interviews, signing autographs and prepping their bikes. As well, it also includes a presentation area for local businesses and sponsors who have stands where we can get nibbles, drinks and enjoy the friendly atmosphere. A great opportunity for photos of all the stars of cycling.

 

After we see the Pros off to work with the colourful mass depart from the start line, we will have decided to jump ahead of the race. After riding the cat 3 alto de Gurada (the only climb in today's otherwise flat route), we watch the peloton stream past roadside with the local Portuguese fans. From here we continue our ride, passing the natural park of the Serra de Estrella, some of Portugal's best scenery. We have decided to ride this beautiful area rather than the busy, flat road into today's finish. Stopping for a coffee and a Portuguese custard tart, we will catch up on the finish of the race in a local bar.

 

 

We take a transfer to the UNESCO heritage city of Salamanca, famed for its churches and ancient university, and spend the night in the luxury of the Parador hotel. Take a group dinner in its acclaimed restaurant, with the best views out to the famous skyline of the old town. Time to relax as we think about tomorrow's big stage.La Vuelta a España - Stage Logroño, ITT, Esteban Chaves


Day 6. Saturday 05 September – The Showdown! - VIP Summit Finish - The Covatilla (Madrid)

95+ km / 60+ miles

La Vuelta have done it again and left a day of fireworks for the end. The final monster hors category (especial) climb of La Covatilla will decide La Vuelta 2020. This penultimate stage takes in hilly terrain in the superb Central Mountains of Spain, that might really break up the Vuelta podium chances for those left in contention.

 

We will ride the last category 3 climbs, then the category 2 (Alto de la Garganta) before ascending to the Covatilla ski station resort. This epic climb of 12 km is the final challenge, and at the top we will enjoy a VIP stage finish finale watching the race leader win the red jersey and La Vuelta 2020. A great end to this special day!

 

Cycle La Vuelta 2020 Race Route, VIP access to Finish, see NibaliAfter this finish, we transfer into Madrid to prepare for tomorrow's festivities and will be staying at a lovely 4 star boutique hotel, a former 19th century palace, right across from the famous El Retiro park and the close by the Prado museum. More importantly, the hotel is around the corner from the finish line of La Vuelta! A fantastic place to stay for the next 2 nights. Enjoy a night out in the capital of Spain.

 


Day 7. Sunday 06 September – Madrid Circuit, Neptuno VIP, Podium Finale

La Vuelta Bike Tour in MadridMadrid circuit 30 km / 18 miles

Truly an exciting end to an epic and emotional event.  Well, here we are at the end, and still one more exciting ride to do. How about a ride on the closed streets of Madrid and the race route before all the Pros? You will not forget this bike ride very quickly. The sidewalks filling with expectation and happy spectators as you make your way around Madrid in a very unique way! We will ride under La Vuelta supervision.

 

After this unique experience, get changed back at our nearby hotel and then head to the upgraded Neptuno VIP hospitality zone. Usually an extra charge of 350 Euros, we have included it in this year's package! Next to the finish line the views are amazing as we watch the UCI Women's pro race, the Madrid Challenge, lap past us before seeing the winner.

Winning La Vuelta

 

Enjoy a fine buffet lunch, all day open bar and a Vuelta gift in this area, before awaiting for the arrival of the men's peloton hurtle by in a blaze of colour, 10 times on the circuit. Again all included on this last day as we believe that the end to the 2020 Vuelta would not be the same experience if you didn't get to share in this great closing event up close. Our front line seats in Madrid will not fail to impress.

 

Vying for those last palmares, the sprinters are always on game for the prestigious final stage win. See the riders take those last moments to congratulate each other and thankfully cross the line after 3 immensely hard weeks of riding.  Enjoy seeing the final podium presentations. Truly Pura Emocion!

Reviews

"Geoff, Dean & Javier, Thanks for some glorious rides and a wonderful adventure. Again, a real pleasure to ride with you.
"When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road without thought for anything but the rid you are taking - Arthur Conan Doyle - "Still a good idea to keep an eye out for route signs though!! 😃"

D. & R. Coutts, Calgary, Canada. - La Vuelta 2019 - Last Week to Madrid VIP Tour 2019

"Cycling Country far surpassed the high expectations we had for the tour. We had such a wonderful time 😃😃 A million thanks to you and Geoff and Dean and Javier. 😘

J. & L. Hickman, MN, U.S.A. - La Vuelta 2019 - Last Week to Madrid VIP Tour 2019 - Non Cyclists

"We had booked to visit Madrid to watch the final stage of the Vuelta Espana, we come every year as Madrid is a magical city. This year was my partners 50th birthday so for a surprise I decided to book with Cycling Country for the Neptuno VIP experience. There were a choice of experiences to choose from but I decided as it was a birthday treat we would go all out and chose the most comprehensive experience. Maggi was extremely helpful and gave me honest information on what we could expect. The Neptuno experience was amazing. We were situated to the side of the finish line with an unobstructed view of the cyclists as they passed.

Food and drinks were included in the day and were of very high quality and in abundance. Waiters would continually walk round with canape's or take drink's order.

I explained to Maggi this was a surprise birthday present and she arranged for us to get a behind the scenes tour of the riders area, podium and interview area's. This was so much fun and for cycling enthusiasts to have your photos taken on the podium and finish line made the day so much more special.

We really couldn't have hoped for a better day. Just as the riders crossed the finish line, we got a tap on our shoulder from Dean who works with Cycling Country to tell us to come with them as we might be able to get into the podium area again to watch the finishing ceremony. Very few people were able to get in so we crossed our fingers and followed. They managed to get us in and we couldn't contain our excitement, cyclist 's coming in to be interviewed, have their press photograph's taken and prepare for the ceremony. We were unbelievably close to the riders and to really make my day Alberto Contador and Juan Antonio Flecha were directly in front of us doing there Eurosport commentary.
We cannot begin to thank Cycling Country, Maggi, Geoff and Dean was making this day so amazing. They went over and above what we were expecting from the day. Thank you so much.

It's my big birthday in a couple of years and my partner is going to have to work hard to beating this.

If you’re considering either a cycling tour or a VIP experience, look no further than Cycling Country, an honest and welcoming company that really do look after their guests.
M. & D. Lovatt, UK - La Vuelta 2018 - Neptuno Madrid VIP 2018

"I want to thank you for the fantastic experience you gave Alex and I. It will be something we will always remember. You and Geoff were excellent hosts and the riding and vip experience was outstanding!
Thanks for all you did to make it so great
Thanks again for everything
Chat soon."
M. & A. Webb, Calgary, Alberta - La Vuelta 2018 - The South

"Just a short note to thank you all for making it such an enjoyable week, notwithstanding all the problems that you had to deal with.
You could not have chosen better hotels or arranged better group meals.
We would have come back just for the pleasure of seeing you all again, so the hotels and the riding were a bonus!
The meal on the rooftop terrace in Malaga was particularly stunning as was the vista from the Parador in Ronda.
It is always interesting to meet different people and some of them were a little different.
We are back safe and sound, the cat is happy and the last washing is going out to dry."

La Vuelta 2019 Road Bike Holiday with Cycling Country Bike Tours"With Cycling Country we made our first cycling trip to Europe. Geoff, Dean, Javi and the rest of the crew made our rides and say really happy. Balbino took care of my mom and showed her Spain while me and my brothers went riding, then we met at the finish line of La Vuelta stages. It was a terrific Trip and we will for sure do it again!!!"
D. Botero, Medalin, Columbia - La Vuelta 2017

“The weather and the event were awesome. We had a very memorable experience. Thank you!”
P. Oppenheim, Sydney, Australia - La Vuelta 2017 - Neptuno VIP Experience

"Awesome Vuelta a España tour, amazing VIP access, up close & personal with the riders!
We recently did a Vuelta a Espana tour with Cycling Country, and had an amazing time. The tour was well-organized and thought out, with rider enjoyment in mind, both from the perspective of riding and spectating. The Spanish-based company clearly has a very close relationship with the race organizers, which is to the benefit of Cycling Country's clients. The VIP access to starts and finishes, as well as the podium, were unbelievable. Because the race is smaller, it is also much more intimate, enabling access to the riders. The behind-the-scenes access and perspective was very interesting, as was the talk from a retired rider. This was our third time doing a trip with Cycling Country, and the reason we chose them for our Vuelta shadow tour. Previously we have done self-guided tours or fixed-stay trips, and have been very impressed and pleased with the company and the service it provides. Geoff and Maggi are wonderful people and it shows in their dealings with clients. We would definitely recommend Cycling Country for any of its tours, but especially the Vuelta a Espana tour!"
A. Sauve & Tim, Cobourg, Canada - La Vuelta 2017 - The North

"The Vuelta tour was probably the best bike tour I have ever done. Ok the days were long, but your team gave us the best access I have ever had to a Grand Tour. The routes you designed to ride the best climbs and see the stage finishes were exceptional. Chapeau!"
John, Ontario, Canada - La Vuelta 2016

"Hi Maggie and Guys,
Since I got back in Oz I have telling everybody what an amazing time I had at the tour. I certainly appreciate the effort you guys put in to make things run smoothly for us."

"Let me write a few lines of thank you. I just can't believe what a trip you gave us all! It was truly a cycling tour that I will never forget. Well done to all of the Cycling Country crew and thank you again for the good times. The Vuelta was the ride of my life."
Steve, Sydney, Australia - La Vuelta 2015

"That was an amazing trip to the Vuelta! So much behind-the-scenes access and some fab riding too. Thanks for everything!"
L.Rice, London, UK - La Vuelta 2015

"The Vuelta Tour 1 (Andalucia 2014) was memorable! The VIP access was exceptional, beyond my expectations. Cycling Country beautifully handled different levels of cycling abilities in the group in the smoothest way, the coordination among them was very professional and efficient, providing to the group an ongoing feeling of safety, support and fun. I will highly recommend them to all my friends and they honestly deserve to run such a successful business. Muchas Gracias for the extraordinary experience!"
L.Sullivan, Colorado, USA - La Vuelta 2014

"Rob and I would like to take the opportunity to send you a big thank you for everything you organized for the tour. We had an amazing time. The ride routes where spectacular and the VIP access was fantastic. Dean and Javi were both lovely, very helpful and encouraging. We had the best time and keep reminiscing about the week wishing we were still in Andalusia. It definitely exceeded all our expectations and hopefully will see you at next years tour. Thank you again"
K.& R.Garland, Australia - La Vuelta 2014

"Thanks Geoff and Dean for a truly wonderful week in northern Spain, climbing up all the famous climbs of the Vuelta's final week, then watching the pros do them in style, from the VIP vantage point of your preferred operator, special access status. The tour was expertly run and organised by you, accommodating all abilities with your usual skill and good humour. This is my third tour with Cycling Country and I hope there'll be more to come. Excellent local food and comfortable accommodation - add great company, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides who are expert road cyclists themselves, and what more could a roadie want! Thanks once again"
