Mojacar - San Juan - Mojacar
One of our favourite rides on an undulating coastal road so breathtaking it is one of the main reasons for us relocating to this area.
We leave Mojacar, cycling north along the beautiful coastline. We pass through the town of Garrucha with the Mediterranean on our right. Along to Vera Playa which is a Naturist resort, so you may catch a glimpse of the odd ….!!
Villaricos is the next village and Sunday is their market day, one of the largest in the area. This is the start of 20km of rolling silky smooth tarmac, with the sea shimmering away next to us. The road is one for the Punchuers.
San Juan de los Terreros appears at the end of this section. A great spot for a coffee and cake! We then turn and head uphill and take a 15km loop around the magnificent Aquilón Golf Course, rated “Best Desert Golf Course in Europe”.
Heading back along the coastline, the return will feel like a completely different ride - up becomes down and vice versa, the direction of the sun casting an entirely different landscape.
This ride is approximately 75 km with 900 m of climbing. A great end of tour ride?
