    Cycling in La Rioja

    An amazing variety of everything you want from a holiday on two wheels, satisfied completely - spectacular scenery, fantastically tasty food, authentic quaint accommodation, vino tinto-tastic!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The food and wine! Also significantly inspiring me for more cycling (with wines) good times.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    The group leader and driver were both very experienced, considerate, confident and responsible, allowing you to have the best possible time. They were always looking after our safety and happiness.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Spend some time on the bike before your trip to condition your body (your toosh!) so you can enjoy every magical moment. Don't hesitate in doing this trip. All levels catered for.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    A trip that ticks all the boxes! Wine not?!

    Rioja: Cycling and wine

    Another fantastic Exodus holiday! Stunning and varied scenery throughout the trip viewed from quiet roads and traffic-free tracks. Plentiful stops along the way in beautiful towns and villages to sample the delicious local tapas and wonderful wine.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    It's difficult to pick out a single moment, but will always remember the afternoon we frantically out-pedalled an approaching rain shower as we cycled through rolling vineyards away from the dramatic mountain landscape. The quality of the local food and wine has to be a real highlight of the trip!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    The group leader and driver were both excellent - very welcoming, knowledgeable and enthusiastic throughout the trip, really going the extra mile to ensure that we got the most from the holiday. They very effectively took care of all the daily organisation, leaving us to concern ourselves with nothing more than how to both over-indulge in the gourmet food and wonderful wine AND complete the remaining miles.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Cash points are a bit thin on the ground in the more remote areas on the early part of the trip so it's worth getting enough money out on day 1 or 2 to cover until day 5, when you reach Santo Domingo de la Calzada.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I'd thoroughly recommend this holiday!

    The hills are alive

    Loved this trip. It's classified as 'leisurely/moderate' but for me and my fitness level i would say it's more moderate and actually challenging because only the tables are flat in Spain! So expect plenty of undulation, some steep hill climbs with plenty of down hill too. If you do accomplish the hills you feel great. Food and hotels were good, all with wi-fi so i can upload my photos etc. Stunning scenery from riding in the forest, lakes and around the vineyards. The rides were not too long 9.30am -4/5pm.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Having the lung capacity to complete the hill climbs! The scenery is just spectacular.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Alfonso is a very good experienced leader. Sometimes he lead from the start, other times he stayed back with the slower riders (me) and showed us the way back to hotel. Always smiley and encouraging us to do more. Dare I say I might start to like hills, and plan to attempt a few climbs in Aylesbury that i haven't dared to do before. Danny the driver/bike fixer also gave us much needed biking tips!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Train before you come on the trips. I only did an or or so on the weekends and it wasn't enough. Also I have never cycled up that many hills in my entire life. I had hayfever and forgot to take anti-histamine pills, but went to a pharmacy when we got to a town centre. Beautiful flowers everywhere. Bring snacks with you.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Enjoy the rides, and be willing to push yourself.

    Cycling in the Rioja

    A wonderful week of cycling (nothing too difficult) in a beautiful area of Spain. The leader and driver extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The wine tastings were great. A wonderful time was had even with the rainy day.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Cycling through the vineyards. No worries about traffic. They were starting the harvest and the locals were friendly and even giving us grapes to eat.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Friendly outgoing gentleman who loves Spain and cycling and gave us a great experience.

    Karl

    Great itinerary through a unique part of Spain and it was a real pleasure to be able to cycle from hotel to hotel each day. The cycling took us through really varied terrain. The visits to the wineries were informative and very enjoyable. The food was unbelievably good value and served with great local wine!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Travelling along the Camino de Santiago. Cycling the off road Green Route .

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our group leader was very knowledgeable about the local culture and environment. Very supportive and helped to bring and keep the group together, supporting and encouraging individuals along the way. Also was responsive to request and tweaked the itinerary to the conditions. Instrumental in making the whole trip a real pleasure.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The cycling is very enjoyable but slightly more challenging than the rating may lead you to believe . Make sure you have cash rather than rely on credit cards. Good quality Bikes and certainly the ones we were provided had panniers (check for your particular trip but they were very useful)
