Denia is nestled on the Northern Costa Blanca and it has an unrivalled array of routes for all levels of road cyclists. There are flat coastal rides, undulating hilly rides through orange and lemon groves and magnificent mountain routes that feature regularly in La Vuelta (Tour of Spain). Once you leave the narrow ribbon of road that links all of the coastal towns and head inland, the roads are almost empty of traffic and you can ride for hours in blissful tranquility. At Café Ciclista we know all the best routes, the distances and climbing involved and the places to stop if you want to take a break and just take in the scenery.

As you would expect on the Spanish Mediterranean – there is plenty of sunshine in Denia, 320 days a year on average! Through the winter months the temperature will averages around 14-16 degrees, spring and autumn temps will usually be between 17-25 degrees and from June to September it varies from hot to very hot (26 - 36 degrees).
If it rains it is usually for no more than a day or two at a time. We can go several weeks, even months without so much as a drop of rain. The Costa Blanca is considered by the World Health Organisation to have one of the healthiest climates in the world to live in – and we at Café Ciclista agree.
If you are coming on a trip with your family, Denia has 20 kms of sandy beaches that
are safe to swim in as well as rocky alcoves and cliffs to walk along.
There are also golf courses nearby and places offering
horse riding, go-karting,
jet skis and sailing.
