Bicycle routes, discover the bicycle tour
Cycle tourism is an increasingly fashionable trend. It allows you to get to know a country in a completely different way to the traditional one and to immerse yourself in its essence while you exercise and you get in touch with people.
Spain, for example, is a great destination for bike routes, especially in the Valencia area. This part of the country has a privileged climate on its coast that means that practically all year round you can go on bicycle tours and enjoy the richness of its landscapes.
The routes through Valencia and the routes through Alicante pass through very diverse places and allow you to know both the area of the interior of the region and its coastal area, very famous for being one of the most important tourist points nationally and also European.
The Valencian orchard is famous for its great wealth of local products. They emphasize on all of them the oranges, as you well know. The oranges from Valencia are considered the best and the bicycle routes through the orange groves are an experience for the senses both when we find the trees in bloom and when we can enjoy the smell of the ripening fruit. Routes such as olive trees, vineyards and oranges from Valencia discover these landscapes.
Also noteworthy is La Albufera, a Natural Park famous for its wetlands where rice plantations are frequently found, with which the world-famous Valencian paellas are cooked. Many of the bike routes through Spain that have Valencia as a protagonist take place partially in this area of La Albufera, but the Valencia route and the Albufera Natural Park stand out above all.
In Spain there is a network of pedestrian routes or cyclists that are called “Vías Verdes” or Greenways. Many times they pass through very quiet and little traveled natural places. In the Mediterranean there are several of these Greenways, through which runs the route called precisely Greenways of the Mediterranean and allows you to make a fantastic journey from the interior of Valencia to the coast.
The wide variety of bike routes we offer for cyclotouring trips in Spain allow you to choose between different routes and also between different levels of difficulty so that everyone has a chance, from families with children to the most adventurous. The duration of the routes is also variable to adapt to the time that is counted in each trip.
