GO CYCLE AND HIKE EL ESCORIAL

 
 

Are you up for exploring a hidden gem of Spain on two wheels and two feet with us?

 

Then Go Cycle and Hike El Escorial in the Sierra of Guadarrama!

 

Located just 45 kms from Madrid you will be immersed not only in the beauty of its fragrant pine forests but also in the history of its towns and monuments, like the Royal Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, a UNESCO site in the same town where this tour is based.  The Monastery is a testimony to the Spanish Empire at the pinnacle of its power, commissioned by austere and fiercely catholic King Felipe II, champion of the counter-reformation in Europe and the Spanish Armada.  

 

San Lorenzo de El Escorial is a quaint, historic town nestled in the mountain, set in spectacular natural surroundings overlooking Madrid and the rest of the Sierra de Guadarrama range.  This part of Spain is home to avid road cyclists, mountain bikers, and mountaineers alike. This playground of Madrid is yet relatively unknown to tourists and active travellers alike.  So here is your opportunity to discover some of the most epic rides and hikes of the locals, in the Madrid region.

You will feel like a king...or queen of the mountain, atop the peaks of Abantos or el Puerto de Malagón, a Vuelta Ciclista Category 1 climb.  This tour is a novelty offering both an e-mountain biking and hiking itinerary complete with Go Cycle's authentic local flavour...literally...offering mouth-watering gastronomical & wine discoveries in addition to cultural and well-being events. 

 

Pardon the pun, but on this singular tour, you will be given the royal treatment as you pedal and hike through El Escorial's history and beauty with us!
