DirectRooms highlights that cyclists interested in testing themselves over the routes used by professionals training for the famous Tour de France can sign up for a tour of Andalucía in October.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Tour Challenger Andalucía will cover mountain sections used by winning cyclists not only for the Tour de France but also Spain’s famous ‘La Vuelta a Espana’ tour. Participants will get to climb five of the peaks that form part of the Spanish tour as well as ascents of 15km in some sections and Europe’s highest road at an altitude of 3367m above sea level. Once at the top however cyclists are rewarded with stunning views and fast descents that wind through the scenic countryside of forests and rivers.
The tour is being spread over nine days and, in between the cycling, participants will have rest days to recharge their bodies. Walking tours will stretch off the muscles and people can refuel on the delicious tapas and other food of Andalucía.
On other days sightseeing will include the famous palace grounds and fortress of La Alhambra as well as La Mezquita in Cordoba. The rest at a Cordoba City Centre hotel will also allow tour members to be guided around the city’s significant monuments and extensive collection of historical sites.
The entire tour runs from 23rd to 31st October 2011 and over that time cyclists will be covering a total distance of around 350 kilometres.
Lek Boonlert, marketing head at DirectRooms commented: “Hotel places are set to be limited when the cyclists arrive in Cordoba on 25th October so reservations should be made online first if people are planning on visiting over that time.”
