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 Benifallim and Port de Tudons) as well as the ascent of the Coll de Rates used in the 2016 Vuelta a España. We will also have a shorter version (120km, 2,200m) of the Magnificent 7 on the same day using a similar routes as an option for those signed up to the weekend.
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.
