Road Cycling

Calpe has a great reputation for cycling thanks to the beautiful Costa Blanca coastline and the spectacular mountain ranges. This region offers the perfect training environment for both the cyclist and triathlete and is used by many professional teams. There are lots of routes to explore and some great climbs up into the mountains. The road surfaces are near perfect most of the time and on some of the busier roads there is a cycle lane which is about 2m wide so pretty safe. The further inland you go the quieter it gets, to the point that it can get very remote. There is a bike shop in Calpe where you can hire good quality road bikes called
