We advise booking your tour as early as possible, especially for popular tourist destinations where accommodation options are limited. The best choices are often booked out for summer before spring even arrives.
Most tours can still take place in light rain as long as you dress appropriately. During the summer months, afternoon thunderstorms are common, so it’s best to start the tour early. If the weather looks particularly bad, we can try to make adjustments to the tour ahead of time.
Our tours are specially designed for road bikes, and when it comes to Spain, an endurance road bike would be the most optimal choice. However, using a different type of bike will not pose any issues. Gravel bikes can be an excellent alternative as they offer versatility without compromising road performance.
