No. The leader carefully breaks up the distances covered with refreshment stops and lunch. The terrain will vary but clients are always free to hop on the support vehicle that shadows the whole group, if they feel like a break. Saying that, you do cover more ground than you think, especially with a tailwind behind you!

Very nice actually! We stay in 4 different accommodations along the way ranging from Casas Rurales to comfortable hotels and hostels all with en suite rooms. We begin in the pleasant village of Guadarrama where our hotel has a nice restaurant and bar/lounge area. The next 2 nights are spent in Valsain at a rural guesthouse with a garden and spa facilities in a beautiful setting in the natural park of the Sierra de Guadarrama surrounded by great pine forests. In Arcones we stay in a rural hostel with wonderful home made food whilst the final 2 nights of the trip are spent close to the Duraton Nature Reserve in a Casa Rurale.

Synthetic, cotton or merino wool tops will be perfect for cycling , especially when it's hot . Shorts (could be padded) will also be great as it will almost certainly be too hot for cycling in trousers. Stiff sole shoes are in general better for cycling but you could also go for sandals. A lightweight windbreaker (or water-resistant/proof top) may come handy in the unlikely event of a spell of bad weather ; however, in case of rain you may well go for being wet because of the rain rather than because of your own sweat under a jacket.

‘In-country’ bike hire should be arranged at the time of booking, and the cost will be added to your invoice. Please note that there are a limited number of bikes available locally. We always have to match a person's height to the bike frame size and, as there are a limited amount of each size, we cannot always guarantee availability of the correct frame. Therefore it is recommended you add the local bike hire as early as possible.
