I wanted to share with you what a day is like at Cycle Retreats, you already know we have stunning cycling routes in the area so I thought I would focus on what to expect off-the-bike and what you will experience.
Rise and Shine
Zoe and I are up, bright and early to watch the sun rise above the mountains, it’s going to be another wonderful day.
We start organising breakfast as you slowly rise from your beds and make your way into the heart of the Retreat. You’re greeted with coffee and juice on the terrace while the rest of the group gathers and awakens. The air is cool but refreshingly clear.
A wonderful breakfast is served your way… Porridge, Salmon and avocado, eggs, cereal, fruit etc …..what ever you fancy for you pre ride breakfast.
The Beautiful Scenery
We then run through today’s route before getting ready to ride.
We head out for miles and miles of smooth quiet meandering roads, it’s a cycling paradise and I never forget how privileged and lucky we are to share this with you. We stop for lunch and refreshments at some wonderful local places in preparation for the second half of the days cycling. More smooth stunning climbs and meandering sweeping deserts await you with the sun high in the sky…… simply breath-taking.
Back to the Retreat
We’re all heading back to the Retreat after an exhilarating day on the bike, our spirits are high are legs are tired. You are greeted with post ride home made cakes, healthy fresh snacks and your choice of drink. As you unwind and talk about today’s events around the pool area. A stretch out with our Yoga instructor leaves you feeling refreshed before tucking the bikes away for the night.
Cleaned up and back down at Retreat for late afternoon cocktails (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) before we enjoy a wonderful 3-course evening meal together.
The Perfect Way to Unwind
One of my favourite parts of the day; with full bellies, you retire to the terrace and as the temperature drops a little you pull up the blankets and sit around the fire pit with the drink of your choice and the expanse of the stars above you. Perfectly relaxed and contented in the knowledge you have challenged yourself on the bike and you are in a wonderful position to do it all again tomorrow.
This is why we run Cycle Retreats and why you should be here to experience it with us. Book your place today.
