Love Cycling Marbella
Cycling Holidays in Spain. We serve in Andalusia, Andalucia, Malaga, Costa del Sol, Marbella, Mijas and many other places in Spain.
We are a based in Andalusia here on the Costa Del Sol, Mijas Costa, a 30 minute drive from Malaga airport, 15 minutes drive from Marbella and only a few minutes from La Cala de Mijas.
The Province of Málaga is located on the Southern Mediterranean coast of Spain – Andalusia.
The prevailing climate is dry and warm – long summers with short mild winters, the coast has a subtropical Mediterranean climate!
The business has been a year in the planning but many years in the making.
I founded the company with my wife Sam, we have lived here in Andalusia for many
years with our two children Joe & Sophie.
We are a sport mad family living here in Spain, cycling and training as much as possible, so it made perfect sense to start this business.
I have a British Cycling ride leader level 1&2 qualification, and I am a very experienced cyclist. I love to explore and I love a bit of adventure!!
In the time that we have lived here in Mijas Costa, I have cycled thousand of kilometres using the varied terrain & the great climate which has enabled me to train for many cycle races & Sportive’s that I have entered both here in Spain and across Europe.
Checkout – Sierra Nevada límite & La Sufrida (we will be running trips to these events)
I have twice competed in the Tour de Transalp (2012 & 2016) – a seven day stage race through the alps, as well as quite a few U.K. based Sportive’s – my favourite being the three day Tour Of Wessex. We have the perfect training ground to run our dream business.
Sam is an experienced cyclist who loves to get out on her bike with me or just riding out with the girls. She is a sports fanatic with 7 marathons and countless half marathons to her name and brings a wealth of knowledge and sense to everything. Sam is also a professional photographer allowing us to offer great sports photography.
So our knowledge here is vast. We have cycled every road, climbed every mountain & enjoyed every decent to bring you the best possible routes.
We also have a great team of experienced guides. All of our guides are very accomplished cyclists who train and compete in events both locally and around the globe. They have worked professionally in the sports industry for many years & have a vast local knowledge & can advise the best restaurants & beaches to visit, should you fancy a afternoon off the bike.
We will do everything possible to make your stay with Love Cycling Marbella a fantastic and safe experience!!
We hope to see you soon,
Trev & Sam.

What to expect
We always like to speak with our clients before they arrive to say hello and discuss what distances they like to ride, what level they are at and if they want to ride as one group or split up into two groups of abilities so everyone has an enjoyable experience.
Upon your arrival we will collect you / your group along with all of your luggage, including your bike boxes and deliver you to your choice of accommodation.
Once you're checked in and ready we then take clients that have booked bike rental for a bike fit.
If you arrive early enough and want to ride that day - no problem, we will take you for a spin on a local loop to get that flight out your legs.
After a enjoyable evening and a good nights sleep our day begins with a breakfast at your accommodation (cereals ,bread , cakes, selection of fruits, Tea ,Coffee ,Juices etc).
AND THEN WE RIDE
For all our guests we ride with experienced guides (British Cycling ride leader level 1&2) For larger groups we use 2/3 staff and at times make use of support vehicles.
We always like to catch the morning sun and set off fairly early depending on the time of year (a little later in the winter due to sunrise being later) and cycle for a few hours on our chosen route. All our routes are popular cycling routes with the local Spanish riders and are great fun, and at times challenging.
We normally stop for lunch & have some tapas, a chat & recharge the batteries for our afternoon ride. Our return ride depends on the distance our groups are riding but arrival back at your accommodation is normally mid afternoon, allowing time for a swim ,warm-down ,table tennis or just relaxing by the pool and having that well earned beer (or two!!).
The fact that we have cycle specific transport means we can travel along the coast to take in the best roads that Andalucía has to offer, be it the glorious Piñas Blancas mountains to the west, which is frequently used in the Vuelta de Espana (bring those cameras) or in the opposite direction we head east along fantastic coastal road towards Nerja.
Not forgetting El Churro - the lakes of Ardeles, Antequera, Sierra Nevada & Granada - we have it covered!! Hundreds of enjoyable kilometres on good quiet roads. We have done the research so you only get the best!
It all makes for perfect training for that race or sportive that you have planned in the springtime. We can ride alpine style climbs here all year round. Climbs in Andalucía do not get snowed off!!
Our climate is cycling weather all year round, short sleeve jerseys are not unusual in the winter time.
Massages are always available to ease away those aching legs and prepare you for the day to come. Please, if possible inform us prior to arrival if you would like a masseur so we can arrange it.
If you're staying at our base we can arrange chefs to come in and prepare BBQ or Paella nights.
Your evenings are always free to do as you please, you can cook your own meals, or should you need us to recommend a restaurant we will be happy to do so & you may enjoy many of the great local restaurants and bars that the coast has to offer.
And at the end of your time with us we sadly deliver you and your luggage back to the airport.
Until the next time.
