While great weather is not guaranteed anywhere, we were blessed with a sunny, warm and rain free week. Light winds, clear blue skies and temperatures of 18-20 were the order of the week.
Smooth roads, amazing routes, spectacular scenery and fun were also very much on the itinerary. As were four Yoga classes, held on a beautiful rooftop overlooking the mountains. Breathing in fresh air to invigorate and heal our sore tired bodies from all the cycling, it was a match made in heaven.
We had a stretch class on the non yoga days, directly after cycling, learning how to stretch effectively and hopefully initiating a homecare program for people to follow long after the holiday is over.
It really is a great trip. Sun, heat, amazing cycling, yoga, free time, drinks and delicious homemade food in a great local restaurant. Cycling in the Sierra Nevada has something for everyone. We even found cycling World Champion Peter Segan training there. If its good enough for the pros it's certainly good enough for me.

Facts and Figures:
Average daily temperatures for our visits were 18 degrees in 2016 and 22 degrees in 2015
It's not about the kilometers in Sierra Nevada it's about the climbs. Don't be fooled to think it "only 80km" they are tough and arduous climbs with technical descents. This is not a beginners playground, you are a serious cyclist.
For the week the average is 500km, (very hilly routes), however there is plenty of free time to clock up more miles or to rest and recover if you prefer.
We always stop for coffee and photos!
There are four yoga classes and two stretch classes.
A bocadillo (crusty ham and cheese roll) and a coffee will cost you €3-€4
A pint of lager is €2.50
All activities are optional, train as hard as you want.
Places are limited on each trip.
Join me for an amazing trip, winter miles in the sun, don't forget your sunscreen!
