Northern Extremadura in western Spain features in three of the tours. This is a remote area and some time is necessary 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.
As well as being great for cycling, both areas have a rich and fascinating history, wonderful traditional cuisine and dramatic landscapes.
Some supplementary information is included such as map and travel details/recommendations. These details may have changed since the tour described. Thanks to those correspondents who have updated us with some of the changes that have taken place since our visit.
