Departing from one of our five, Ciclotel Point cycling hotels, located on the Mediterranean Sea front you can decide to go straight into the mountains. Alternatively, if you don't want to climb too much you can take the hilly coastal road to Moraira or you can choose to head towards the town of Benissa, where you will encounter a predominantly mountainous area. There's not much traffic in this area and people are very bike friendly. For the world pro teams, it's the perfect area for road cycling training camp, and that's why 8-9 of the teams return every year to our hotels in Calpe.
When you stay in Calpe you can either take to the mountains with bike routes for beginners, as well as the routes for more experienced bikers. Calpe boasts of numerous tracks leading along country roads, gravel roads, and some rocky sections to Jalon, Lliber or Parcent and much more.
For the basic training period for road cycling, running and swimming Calpe is an excellent place to choose. All of our Ciclotel Point Hotels are close to the Mediterranean Sea, so you can almost jump out of your window to get started. Don't forget to bring your wetsuit, because in winter time the water hardly reaches 14º C. The local indoor swimming pool "Fernando Delgado" is 25 meters long if the open sea is too chilly for you. The La Nucia Spanish Olympic training center is 20 km away, this provides an indoor swimming pool, as well as everything a Triathlon athlete should need.
When the Arabs conquered this region they built a castle in the Mascarat area to protect it´s population and named the area around it Kalp.
