Our Cycling Routes & Bespoke Training
We hold 3 or 7 night breaks every month from October to May. Here are our dates for this season.
For our dedicated cycling breaks, our guide has put together four routes with a rest day in the middle. These routes have been made by a cyclist for cyclists and they mix steady and steep hill climbs with flat speed zones.
Our trainer can create bespoke routes of up to 50kms a day to suit any fitness requirements. Just let us know and we’ll send you alternative routes.Our Routes

Mountain & Fat Wheel Biking
Mountains, rolling hills and unspoilt coast surround Casa La Siesta. This varied terrain means it’s ideal for road, mountain and fat wheel cycling. Our cycling breaks can focus on one discipline or mix the three, it’s up to you.
Our team has more than 15 years’ experience in all three types of cycling. Bespoke training and routes can be given in whichever type of cycling you wish to focus on and routes can be adapted to your fitness level. Your routes are included in the cycling break price so just let us know how many days’ road, mountain and fat wheel biking you’d like to do and we’ll organise the rest.
Available Dates & Prices
We have two lengths of break: five or seven days every month from October to May. Our Autumn breaks are 12th – 19th October; 9th – 16th November; 7th – 14th December.
A seven night cycling break is priced from €1399, based on two sharing, on a bed and breakfast basis and includes ensuite bedrooms, bike rental, five routes with support and guidance, water and snacks while cycling, and soft drinks at the hotel.
A shorter version of the break is available over a five night stay with three guided cycle rides, this is from €970.Dates
Support & Equipment
Our support vehicle will be present throughout the cycle routes. There’s also a return vehicle used to get back to Casa La Siesta at the end of gruelling route 3. If you choose to use our bikes, the brands we have available are Olympia and Conor. If you want to bring your own bike with you to Spain we can arrange airport collection if necessary.
Water and snacks are available throughout the day's cycling and are included in the price of the break.
Colder weather apparel might be necessary depending on which week you choose, mainly due to occasional rain and wind during winter and spring. However, with average daytime temperatures for October-December hovering around 15-20°C, it’s certainly warmer in southern Spain than most other places in Europe. You can pack those Rapha summer kits and Velocio bibs, basically.
Tired limbs will benefit from in-room massages and healthy cuisine with a liberal dash of ‘jamon con vino tinto’ to fuel the body and mind.
Casa La Siesta is surrounded by rolling countryside, so a dawn or dusk run to stretch out those hamstrings is easy to do. Also, the main pool is heated which is perfect for easing sore muscles after a long, hard day on the road.
For eating and drinking outside the hotel, the beautiful town of Vejer de la Frontera is a gastro reference point within Andalucia with any number of great restaurants and tapas bars to choose from.
