Daily itinerary

Day 1: Segovia (world heritage city)

This tour starts in the city of Segovia, the world heritage site since 1985. Segovia will surprise you with the beauty of its ancient architecture. You will spend two nights in Segovia. Walk around, get immersed in the charming ambiance of its historic quarter, and discover the hidden jewels of this friendly and wonderful city.

Day 2: Circular route to Segovia (historical royal palaces)

  • Distance: 38 kilometers / 24 miles

The first cycling day will take you to two of the most significant royal palaces in Spain. First, you will visit the Palacio de La Granja de San Ildefonso, an early 18th-century building at the foothills of the Guadarrama mountains. With its baroque style, its French gardens, and its sculptural fountains, this palace was the summer residence of the Spanish kings since the reign of Philip the Fifth and nowadays is a public museum. Then the route will take you to the Palacio Real de Riofrío, an Italian-style edifice surrounded by a quiet forest with deer and fallow deer. Finally, you will return to Segovia to keep enjoying this wonderful city.

Day 3: Segovia - Pedraza

  • Distance: 49 kilometers / 30 miles

Today, you will be cycling through quiet roads and stunning landscapes. The sunshine, the warmth, and a pleasurable ride will take you to the town of Pedraza. This is surely one of the most beautiful walled towns in Spain. Your imagination will no doubt go back to the Middle Ages. Take your time to explore every corner of this astonishing place.

Day 4: Pedraza - Sepúlveda

  • Distance: 42 kilometers / 26 miles

Today’s cycling day will take you to the Duraton Canyon, one of the most awe-inspiring places in the region and home to the largest population of griffon vultures in Europe. You will see hundreds of them flying around you. At the end of the cycling day, you will reach Sepúlveda, another well-preserved medieval village that allows you not only to travel through space but also through time.

Day 5: Sepúlveda - Peñafiel

  • Distance: 55 kilometers / 34 miles

Today, you will cycle into the region of La Ribera del Duero, quite famous for its amazing wines to finally reach the town of Peñafiel, which is best known for the Peñafiel Castle and for its medieval square named Plaza de Coso. The square is surrounded by private homes, but since medieval times the rights to use their windows, balconies, and doorways during bullfights are owned by the town. Ants on Track do not like bullfighting at all but is part of the story of their country. In Peñafiel are located some of the most relevant wineries in Spain and they can arrange a visit to one of them on request.

Day 6: Peñafiel - Aranda de Duero

  • Distance: 43 kilometers / 27 miles

This beautiful cycle for the river Duero will take you through vineyards to the historic town of Aranda del Duero in the province of Burgos, well-known for its wonderful wines and capital of the Ribera del Duero region. You can visit some wineries as well and enjoy the local food and bars.

Day 7: Aranda de Duero - Ayllón

  • Distance: 50 kilometers / 31 miles

Today, you will discover the ancient town of Ayllón, of probably the Celtiberian foundation. It was destroyed by the Romans under the command of Marco Fulvio Nobilior in 190 BC. Repopulated during the Arab occupation in the 10th century, it was named Aellon for the first time in 1076. You will reach this wonderful village after a cycling day along quiet roads through the evocative landscapes of the Spanish plateau.

You will come across the historic town of Maderuelo, where you will walk through its streets and discover the most interesting places that this Segovian town treasures. This town has been declared a Historic Site for its beauty and its historic heritage. History that you will breathe in every corner.

Day 8: Ayllón - Riaza

  • Distance: 49 kilometers / 30 miles

Another beautiful day traveling through the province of Segovia to discover the so-called Pueblos rojos - red towns, of ferruginous sandstone; the Pueblos negros - black towns of slate; and the Pueblos Amarillo - yellow towns, of quartzite-based constructions. The geological diversity of this area immerses you in a colorful journey. An exciting day full of contrasts on the foothills and slopes of the Sierra de Ayllón. The medieval town of Riaza is one of the most beautiful towns in the province of Segovia. In 1970, it was declared a historic artistic site.

Day 9


About the tour

The tour starts in Segovia. The city is famous for its historic buildings, which include three landmarks: its Roman Aqueduct, its Gothic style cathedral, and the ‘Alcázar’ - from the Arabic voice Al-Qasr - meaning ‘castle’, which served as an inspiration in Disney’s Cinderella’s Castle. The city center was declared of World Heritage by UNESCO in 1985. Throughout the tour, you will visit some of the most bucolic and astonishing villages in the Iberian Peninsula - Pedraza, Sepúlveda, Ayllón - and you will cycle along breathtaking landscapes through the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park.
