We love biking near the east coast of Spain, with mountains, beautiful cliffs and hillsides, charming villages and kind and friendly people. There are many good options for cycling, including a number of Via Verdes (old railroads converted to lovely bicycle paths).

Good hotels and restaurants are easy to find. Knowledge of Spanish language is of course an advantage, but you will usually be understood speaking English.
