Cycle tours in Extremadura and El Maestrazgo
Four cycle tours, all of which are in very quiet areas of Spain, are described here. As well as being great for cycling, both areas have a rich and fascinating history, wonderful traditional cuisine and dramatic landscapes.
Northern Extremadura in western Spain features in three of the tours. This is a remote area and some time is required in order to reach the region from Madrid or elsewhere.
El Maestrazgo in eastern Spain is the other destination and is easily reached from Valencia or Barcelona.
Some supplementary information is included such as map and travel details/recommendations. These details may have changed since the tours described. Thanks to those correspondents who have updated us with some of the changes that have taken place since our visits.
