Road Cycling from Casa Santa Filomena
In 2015 the Vuelta D' Espagne (Tour of Spain) road race came through Orgiva. This is as good an indication as you can get that we live in a world class road cycling area. From the house there are a myriad of superb, smooth, extremely quiet mountain roads to explore on your road bike. You can take in the Alpujarras, the Sierra Nevada, the Contraviesa and more, all from the house, without the need for a car.
We can provide you with GPS compatible routes and recommendations for great cafe/bars en route, to slake your thirst or to stop for food. The shortest road loop from the house is 43km and involves 1,050m of ascent. From there, we can recommend other longer and more scenic (though arduous) routes. Our favourite is a 100km, 2,000m ascent loop taking in many of the famous white-washed villages including Cadiar and Trevelez, and exposing you to the real beauty of the Alpujarras. Of course you can go where-ever you like and do as much or as little as you wish.
You can securely store your bike at the house. If you need to rent a good road bike then we recommend the following shop, which is about 35mns from the house: http://bullbikes.com/en/333-rent-a-bike
