Your journey starts in the town of Ronda (altitude 700m) where you're staying in a luxury hotel with buffet breakfast! In the workshop of Cycle Ronda, you can pick up your bike or, if you bring your own, store your bike boxes. On the first touring day you cycle through Benaoján and El Colmenar, with three steep climbs, to the beautifully situated Gau-cin. From the castle you may see Gibraltar! Here begins the natural park with holm oaks.

The wooded tour from Gaucín leads you to the Mediterranean coast on the newly Peñas Plancas (1010 m) and then through the beautiful white village of Casares back to Gaucín. You exchange the park Alcornocales for the higher in the mountains located Grazalema (900 m). Through a rolling landscape you continue and will have views on the Mediterranean Sea and the Moroccan Rif mountains!

You descend to 200m where, after some smaller mountains have been conquered, you will climb Col del Boyar (1111 m). The last kilometers you will descend to Grazalema, one of the most beautiful white villages of Andalusia. The hotel with garden and swimming pool is a wonderful place to relax and ideally situated for a day trip. This tour ends with one of the most beautiful mountains of Spain (known from the round of Spain!), The Puerto de las Palomas.

The climb begins north of the village of Zahara (300 m) and ends at 1189 m. Many professional cyclist have climbed this pass. The last stage is the best and will lead you through a number of virulent climbs to the hidden village Serrato. Through a very steep climb (10-14%) you'll discover a wooded landscape with magnificent vistas. North of the park Sierra de las Nievas, in the valley, El Burgo is located. You climb from the valley, towards the Puerto del Viento (1072 m) on a fantastic road full of hairpin bends. En route, you have spectacular views of the latter Sierra.

The last day of the tour goes through some of the Pueblos Blancos (white villages)in the Serranía Ronda mountains and after a long climbing part, the route can be characterized by short but strong climbs and descents.
The itinerary mainly follows very quiet, good asphalt roads, and many cols have to be climbed. The average gradients are between 4% and 14%. In terms of length, most do not exceed 15 miles continuous climbing.
