IRUSA Team Challenges | 2017 – 2018

“The best way to explore Andalusia, is on two wheels!

So, join us on this epic 4 day cycling adventure across Andalusia. This is the perfect challenge for those of you wanting to combine doing a challenge for a great cause, with an experience that will be filled with fond and long lasting memories of discovery!

Cycling 30-40 miles every day, for 4 days, to provide sustainability projects in Europe, you will also get the once in a lifetime opportunity to discover and explore Islamic heritage sites and uncover the long forgotten Islamic history of Spain. We will be visiting landmark Spanish mosques, fortresses and eventually arriving at the site where the Nasrids, the last Muslim dynasty in Spain made their final stand.

Whilst this is a challenge, it is not a race – so you will be able to enjoy the breathtaking sights, sounds and smells whilst you cycle; stopping to admire the views and capture lots of stunning photographs for your memories…and of course, soak up the sun!
