TRAVEL

Malaga is the near­est air­port served by reg­u­lar, di­rect flights from a choice of UK air­ports. From there it’s 160km by road to Berja. Public trans­port is lim­ited, so car hire is the best bet if you’re go­ing it alone.

AC­COM­MO­DA­TION

Ho­tels are lim­ited in Berja. We stayed with Vamos Cy­cling, which of­fers bed and break­fast (with op­tional even­ing meal) at a town house in Ca­diar, about 45 min­utes from Berja. It also of­fers train­ing weeks and pack­ages based around lo­cal sportives, as well as win­ter train­ing camps on the Alme­rian coast. The 2016 six-night La Indomable pack­age, in­clud­ing B&B, trans­fers, guided rides and en­try fee, costs £465 per per­son. More de­tails at va­moscy­cling.com. Thanks to Gary and Sarah Wil­liams at Vamos Cy­cling for host­ing our trip, to Gary’s club, Club Ci­clista de Berja, for ar­rang­ing trans­port for our pho­tog­ra­pher, and to Martin Knott Thompson at Cy­cling Ren­tals for our last-minute re­place­ment bike. His Race Pack deals start at around £140. For more information visit cy­cling-ren­tals.com.
