Coll de Rates Cycling Holidays receives Bike Territory certification

Located in the heart of the Costa Blanca, in an area with unparalleled cycling conditions, Coll de Rates Cycling Holidays has everything you need for cycling tourists.



Coll de Rates has become in its own right in recent years one of the most recognisable and recognised climbs by the international peloton, which values the ideal location of this mountain pass and the benefits of an incomparable area for cycling.

After many years of experience in the rental of flats in Calpe, Coll de Rates Cycling Holidays was born, an innovative concept that has grown hand in hand with the boom in cycle tourism on the Costa Blanca and which, with magnificent facilities and a range of services adapted to the needs of cyclists, has obtained recognition from the Royal Spanish Cycling Federation as Bike Territory.

Bike Territory, a brand of the Royal Spanish Cycling Federation (RFEC), recognises destinations, municipalities and companies that stand out for their commitment to the promotion of cycling, offering optimum quality standards in their infrastructures, facilities and services for the cycling public.

The Royal Spanish Cycling Federation thus certifies the suitability of Coll de Rates Cycling Holidays as a cycling experience in a destination that is already a reference for both cycle tourists from all over the world and for many of the best professional cyclists on the planet, who use Coll de Rates as their training base season after season.


Coll de Rates Cycling Holidays offers a 100% configurable cycling experience, adapting to any cyclist profile, making available to these fully equipped flats in private urbanization, with swimming pool and underground parking; professional rental of high-end road bikes with custom fit for each client or trekking ebikes for occasional cyclists; transfer service from the airport (Alicante or Valencia) to the facilities and vice versa; guided routes service with a native guide and self-guided routes using Gpx files or bike ride maps; and laundry or massage service, among many other additional services.

In addition, the flats have access to a cycling centre exclusively for guests who will have 24-hour access with a coded lock. The centre also has a workshop area for bikes, tool bench, air pump, oil...; bike parking with steel cable slings and locks; floor stands for bikes, washing areas, relaxation areas with sofas and armchairs, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, infusions, Smart TV, Wi-Fi, connection for mobiles, laptop, briefing area, lockers with key for helmets, Bkool roller...


A host of details that will allow cyclists to enjoy an experience that is hard to match and which now also has Bike Territory certification.

"The Costa Blanca offers conditions to enjoy the bike that in recent years has even made many of the best cyclists in the world spend much of the year in this territory. Now, in addition, with Coll de Rates Cycling Holidays anyone can spend a few days of disconnection with a service fully adapted to cyclists, and also enjoy an already mythical climb as the Coll de Rates or any of the other ports in the area; a real enjoyment for any enthusiast of the bike," said the president of the Royal Spanish Cycling Federation, José Luis López Cerrón, regarding this new certification.



Daniel Catalán, manager of Coll de Rates Cycling Holidays, said: "We are proud to be able to do our bit with a project created by cyclists for cyclists. This challenge embodies years of experience in the sector, offering all the services that a cyclist may need in a unique setting called 'Costa Blanca'. This recognition is for us an added impetus and motivation to keep working hard to improve our services season after season. Life is built on experiences; therefore, we offer experiences, where our main objective is that each of our customers enjoy and, ultimately, feel; because to feel is to live".
