The best time to enjoy a cycling tour or trip through Spain will depend entirely on the area/s you plan to explore. Girona offers the best cycling conditions between March and June and September through December, as the weather is lovely and cool during this time. In Andalucía, the best time to go on a cycling tour is during winter between September and June.
The regions of northern Spain, such as Cantabria and the Basque Country, are primed for cycle exploration between April and October. For a year-round cycling condition, Costa Brava is the perfect place although it can get remarkably busy in the summer.
- Girona: Fondly known as the cycling capital of Europe, the charming town of Girona and its surrounds boast a perfect mix of rolling countryside and challenging climbs in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
- Andalucía: Home to the towering Sierra Nevada mountains, the sun-drenched coastline of the Costa del Sol, and enchanting towns such as Cordoba, Granada, and Seville, Andalucía is a wonderful place to explore on two wheels, particularly in the cooler winter season.
- Asturias, Cantabria, and the Picos de Europa: These regions in northern Spain are known for their spectacular landscapes, charming little towns, and delicious food—perfect to soak them all up on a bicycle tour.

- Costa Brava: Stretching down the western side of Spain from France to Barcelona, the Costa Brava is a stunning, unspoiled coastline that is well worth exploring by bike, with winding, hilly roads, and jaw-dropping ocean views.
