In 2016 we are very excited to be running another training camp for Dulwich Paragon CC. We will be heading to Spain once again but for variety will be staying in a dfferent area to last year providing some fantastic cycling in a different Andalucian national park within cycling distance of the spectacular town of Ronda. A trip not to be missed.

Transfers are included for those flying on the recommended flights only. If you choose to arrive on a different day or at a different time transfers are your own responsibility. The 90 minute transfer costs approximately 200 Euro’s for 1-4 people (less for larger groups).
There is also a train form Malaga to Ronda that takes approximately 2 hours.
The 4* Hotel Fuerte is situated in the traditional Spanish village of Grazalema in the heart of the Sierra de Grazelema national park and only 25km from the city of Ronda. There are plenty of cycling options for all riders and plenty of climbing. The hotel is in a truly spectacular setting with mountain views, a pool, bars and a good restaurant. It is rated 4/5 on trip advisor and there is also plenty of secure bike storage and laundry facilities.
We know that nutrition is a key part of any cycling trip and of the up-most importance to all cyclists. We have worked closely with the hotel to produce a menu that suits all dietary requirements and provides plenty of options for hungry cyclists at breakfast and dinner time.
On the ride we will supply snacks and water on the ride. We recommend you supply your own nutrition but also offer a 20% discount on all pre-trip purchases from our energy partner. These can be delivered to the hotel ready for your arrival. Please contact us for more details.
