cycling with sea view
CYCLING HOLIDAY VIA VERDE OJOS NEGROS
Cycling with sea view, nice and easy! We have selected the nicest paths for you between Valencia and the fortified town of Peñiscola. Sometimes you cycle right along the sea, sometimes a little further inland, along lagoons, rivers and a number of surprising places. In countless places you can walk straight to the beach from your bike. Or stop for a drink on one of the many boulevards and bars along the way.
The last 15 km you cross the Sierra de Irta, a protected nature reserve with many bays and beaches. With a brilliant ending: Peñiscola, a rock in the surf.
You can get lost in the medieval streets, lounge on the terrace and eat in trendy restaurants.
And you can easily combine this trip with our bike ride through theAlbufera (rice fields) and orange groves along the Jucar Riveror theEbro Delta and Via Verde del Zafan. The route is also possible in reverse order.
You stay in a number of beautiful places, always close to the sea.
Once in Peñiscola you can extend your stay, there are many hotels on the boulevard. The return trip to Valencia is easy by train (from Benicarlo, 10 km away). You can take your bicycle on the train. Or we will pick you up with a van.
Individual or group travel
You spend the night at 2 or 3 places along the route and cycle as much as possible on cycle paths and quiet roads close to the coast.
