Keen cyclist? Try La Sufrida - 27th May 2017

Cicloruta Internacional Serrania de Ronda or La Sufrida, The Sufferer, as it is aptly know in Spanish, is one of the main cycle endurance races in Andalusia. The event usually takes place on the first Saturday in June (or last Saturday in May) and consists of a 196km circuit called the "Gran Fondo" around the Ronda countryside on tarmac. Since 2006 the event has been organised by a local running club and starts from a different village each year. Typically it starts at 08.00 at the main square in El Gastor. The route takes in many interesting towns including: Zahara de la Sierra, Puerto de las Palomas, El Bosque and Puerto del Boyar, Grazalema, Los Villalones, Arriate, Ronda and Montejaque. The winning time is under 7 hours and the race cut off is 11 hours. The police provide a race security zone.
