La vuelta with Elitecycling

Thanks to our partners at The Albir Playa Hotel and spa with a very exclusive pre booking to save rooms in peak summer for La Vuelta. This year we have 3 days of race watching with the option to purchase finish line passes on stage 2 in Calpe. On arrival at Alicante of which you will need to catch an early flight and arrive before 11am we will send the luggage and your bike onto the hotel whilst we will be taken to Torrevieja to watch stage one which is the team time trial. After the race we will be taken to the hotel to relax and have our evening meal. Bikes can then be assembled either by yourself or witht the help from our staff. Stage 2 departs from Benidorm and we can see the riders in a few differrent places before riding to the finish in Calpe. There is an option to purchase VIP passes but there will be no transport to the finish line and we will need to find out if bikes are allowed into this area. We of course accept no responsibility for your bike if left unattended. Price for the VIP ticket is £100 and we would advise trying to get some kind of transport to the venue and we will find out for you how this can take place due to road closures. Stage 3 is a little further south going back towards Alicante but again we have an opportunity to see the race on the road. We will have lot's of time to see the local climbs and you can test yourself or just enjoy the sunshine. During the week we will also endeavour to ride most of the stage 2 route on one day so you get to experience the roads that the teams raced on. This is not a training camp and is to give you an experience of not only riding in the beautiful Costa Blanca but to also see the race over multiple days. We must stress that bookings are in very short supply due to being peak summer and bookings will close based on availability of rooms at the hotel.


Location & Accommodation

We are based at The Albir Playa Resort & Spa, on the Costa Blanca, Spain.

Our four-star hotel has a health spa and swimming pool for post ride recovery. The buffet meals are tasty and plentiful! Most evenings we end up in the bar for chat and we always find a pizzeria for our last night.


Fully Coached & Supported

Every ride is accompanied by a qualified coach who offers individual guidance on your technique, efficiency, effort and skills. We ensure that you are able to ride in a group and gain maximum benefit from structured intervals – for example: sprint efforts, through-and-off, cornering, descending & climbing techniques, functional threshold tests. Each route is planned to make sure you are able to progress over the week and moving between groups is encouraged.


The Best Routes

We provide GPX routes that cover a variety of terrains and challenge – from new riders to those who are race training. The Col de Rattes is a favourite climb for all abilities, one side or the other or both! Routes vary in length with faster groups on 100-130 km and slower up to 80 km.


Bike Hire

If you’d rather hire a bike than take your own, Elite Bikes based opposite the hotel at Albir charge just £100 for the week.

  • Merida Scultura or Ridley Helium bikes
  • Shimano Ultegra 11 speed mechanical groupsets

  • Disassemble and pack your bike in your own or one of our boxes for travel
  • Build your bike in Spain
