Ride Description

Dénia: Dénia boasts a privileged position on the Mediterranean Sea. It has a mild climate and little rainfall. Professional cycling teams use the area every year for training. There are flat lands for easy cycling, including former railway lines, as well as more challenging terrain inland. We will be staying in a large, comfortable hotel just a few metres from one of Dénia’s beaches. The hotel has a swimming pool, bar and evening entertainment. There is a large, secure bicycle storage area in the basement.

We will meet before dinner each evening in the hotel bar area to discuss each day's ride and generally have a chat.

A pleasant walk of around one mile along the seafront will take you to the heart of Dénia, with a wide variety of local and international shops. There are numerous bars and restaurants too. You might see the large ferries which ply their trade to the Balearic Islands. Moored along here are super-yachts belonging to the mega-rich.

The castle dominates the skyline, and we will be able to visit on one of the shorter ride days.

There are two separate weeks for this holiday. You can book either one, or both.

March 4th to 11th and/or March 11th to 18th 2023.

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy
Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Challenging
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a recently launched cycling club, which you can join for free, and is led by volunteer ride leaders. We will be offering tours in the United States and overseas. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 20-30 or so) who want to ride 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
