Murcia Bike Hire Guided Ride – Cabeza de la Plata and Embalse de la Padera

As we have previously posted Murcia Bike Hire are now offer guided rides for individuals and groups.

Todays adventure started with an 9am meeting with a single cyclist from the Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort, who made a request when booking bike hire for a guided ride and some advice on routes. The perfect time for the guided ride was to arrange this to start shortly after the delivery of his Cervélo S3 carbon road bike.

Where to go in the middle of January for great weather and clear roads, need I say more, when I live somewhere that boasts 320 days of sunshine per year.

The location of Hacienda Riquelme is perfect for a winter break and even better located for cycling routes. So as planned we set off on the short climb over the Cabeza de la Plata and headed inland toward Embalse de la Padrera with a short stop in Torremendo where we took the opportunity for a coffee shop break. From here we headed towards the coast and Lo Romero, Alvilese and then back towards Hacienda Riquelme. A stunning ride with rolling terrain that never stops giving, with the total distance of 100km and over 2,000ft of elevation.
