Welcome to Hooked on Cycling and our self-guided cycling holiday in the region of Segovia not far from the city of Madrid. This is leisure cycling in the heart of Spain or true Spain as some like to say. This is an easy cycle tour along quiet country roads.
Segovia itself is a historic city northwest of Madrid. Its centuries-old settlements have resulted in a rich architectural legacy, including medieval walls, Romanesque churches, a former royal palace and a Gothic cathedral. Most famous is its iconic ancient Roman aqueduct which has more than 160 arches, most in the original mortarless granite. This famous landmark stands above Plaza Azoguejo in the heart of the city. On this self-guided cycling holiday in Spain, you will truly be amazed at the culture, history, wildlife and open spaces that you shall encounter.

Fly to Madrid and make your way to Segovia. The monumental city of Segovia was declared a World Heritage Site in 1985. This is where you will spend the first night and have a chance to visit its many historic jewels.
Today you shall cycle from Segovia along small country roads and passing pretty rural countryside. You will have a chance to stop at the famous Royal Palace of San Ildefonso and visit its lovely gardens. You will be able to eat along the way in one of the many excellent restaurants at Torrecaballeros.
Today’s route takes you on a circular route. You will cycle away from the mountains along small country roads, to reach the historic town of Turegano, renowned for its Moorish castle and beautiful town square. After a visit to the town and even some food, you make your way back to Sotosalbos.
You will cycle through small villages and wooded landscapes to reach the beautifully preserved medieval town of Pedraza, a national historic monument worth exploring during an evening walk before dinner.
Today’s cycle tour takes you on another circular route to discover the surrounding countryside of Pedraza. You will come across quaint villages where the rustic style is ever-present, perfect examples of rural Romanesque churches and stunning countryside and wildlife.
What better than today where you shall cycle from the foothills to the plains of Castilla. A gentle cycle amongst fields of sunflowers and wheat will take you into the historic hilltop town of Sepulveda. You can visit a natural spring where you can enjoy your picnic or even a swim in the medicinal crystal clear waters.
Your last cycling day will be the high point as you cycle in the Duratón Canyon Nature Reserve. Following the river Duratón, as it enters its deep canyon, you will cycle in the shade of poplars while looking up to the huge figures of nesting vultures and other birds of prey. A wildlife lovers paradise!
