Cycling

Your host Marc Jacobs is a passionate cycling tourist for more than 20 years and he used to organise cycling holidays with/for his friends during these years. Consequently Marc has a pretty good idea  what cycling tourists expect and need.
 
The Moraira/Calpe area is by far the most visited cycling area in Europe. The majority of the professional cycling teams train here from November till Februari.  Especially because of the great climate but also because the challenging but excellent cycling roads.
The villa is ideally situated to start cycling tours, for example, only 18 km from the foot of the Coll de Rates.
 
Marc, but also the local bike rental companies, are giving their guests and customers clear maps and road trip tips.
Renting a suitable bike (not only race bikes, but also mountainbikes and E-bikes) can be easily done with several companies.
 
Prices about  EUR 20/day and  EUR 120/week.

 

Villa Grinta Marco assists you by bringing you by car to the bike rental shop and by picking you up after you have returned your the rental bike at the end of the holiday.
 
We can also assist in case of emergency while you are on your road with your bikes.
 
The B&B has a locked bike storage room at the lowest level, next to the entrance gate. Cleaning and spare material is available.
 
Villa Grinta Marco offers an extensive breakfast and cycling guests can communicate their specific desires. Whenever possible we will meet these specific requirements.
 
 
Also when you return from a cycling tour Villa Grinta Marco can offer you  snacks/tapas to recover from your efforts.
 
Since Villa Grinta Marco disposes of a car with a Thule triple bike-carrier, we can assist you also with exceptional transports of yourselves  and your bikes.
 
Mountainbiking is also possible and a great adventure in this area. However, not that easy to discover the best tracks and tours on your own…
Therefore your host collaborates with a professional mountainbike-organisation www.snakebite-mtb.com who has excellent mountainbikes you can rent and who can guide you through the magnificent mountainbike-tracks, adjusted to the level of the clients.
