About the Event
The Magnificent Seven is our epic tried and tested one day ride which takes in seven of the most challenging climbs in the Northern Costa Blanca. It's 165km with 3,500 metres of climbing. It includes two climbs over 1,000 metres (Port de Benafallim and Port de Tudons) as well as the ascent of the Coll de Rates used in the 2016 Vuelta a España.
This 4 night break will include daily led rides including the opportunity to take on the 'Magnificent Seven' which will be fully supported with a car on route.
Accommodation is on a B&B basis in the beautiful Casa de Pozo in the market town of Xaló/Jalón.
Places will be strictly limited to 7 guests.
'The Magnificent Seven' ride will be without café stops, i.e. only stopping for water, energy food etc from the car. We will look to complete the ride in 6-7 hrs.
The support car will be located a strategic points along the Magnificent Seven route, to keep you fuelled for the ride. The average speed of the main group is expected to be around 25-26kmph. However, if you ride more than 10% outside of this we cannot guarantee support from car. Therefore we ask that you only sign up if you are confident you can complete the ride at this pace. We would also ask you to load the GPX route on to your device before the ride.
A group transfer will be available for specific flights to Alicante. The cost of this group transfer is estimated at €25 per person each way (€35 with a bike box), this will be confirmed once final numbers on similar flight times are confirmed.
We can also organise sports massage and yoga for cyclists.
"The Magnificent Seven was a significant challenge, the highlight of our trip and reminded me how underrated the Costa Blanca is as a top cycling destination" Guest May 2017
"We rode the Magnificent 7 with Gavin in May 2017 and it was by far the best day I have had on a bike for a long while. It is a testing route with almost no flat roads, but so rewarding with amazing scenery, long climbs and fast descents. The day was very warm and having Kathryn support us in the car was great. A constant supply of water and food through the day was very important and ensured we finished feeling strong (even allowing us to manage a sprint finish back into town!). Gavin ensured our group kept together, managing the pace well and planned nice lunch and coffee stops to make this a real memorable day. We chose this ride as part of our training for some sportive events during the summer and felt this was great preparation. If you get the chance to ride this one, do not miss it."
