Ride long or Ride short, but ride

Today’s stage is a transition stage. We will take the opportunity to enjoy a ride in the morning, leaving the afternoon available to explore the cultural sites in Segovia. The city centre was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1985. Beyond the Roman aqueduct, undoubtedly the defining feature of the city is its caste Alcázar of Segovia which was an influence for Walt Disney’s Cinderella Castle. There is also the magnificent cathedral of Segovia.

Outside of the city, and on our short ride are a number of Palaces worth seeing whilst on the ride. Once again, we will have a longer ride which will also climb a mountain that defines the limit of Castile and León. Both rides will return to Segovia giving you time to explore this afternoon.

You are free to dine at one of the many restaurants in Segovia this evening.
