We are in the early stages of building the club and seek to make our website a focal point for the cyclists of Pinar de Campoverde & Pilar de la Horadada therefore we welcome your input.
Whilst the Orihuela Costa roads are full of cyclists of all kinds there is a real lack of information on where they meet at what times and which routes they take, this can make meeting like-minded souls very difficult when you first land.
