About Moraira Cycling
Moraira Cycling is a new initiative by Jan van Dalen. In the early 1980´s Jan van Dalen was one of the top cycling amateurs in the Netherlands. Jan has extensive experience as a rider in international competitions, for several top teams where a good supervision was essential for good performance. He uses this experience to offer you, as a cycling tourist, the best guidance on the Spanish Costa Blanca, leaving nothing to chance.
After his cycling career Jan put his entire focus on one of his great passions, namely the building of professional racing bikes under the DUELL brand name. It was in 1986 that he came to this decision and so over the years Jan built a strong commercial brand. In the 30 years that he has been an active frame builder and businessman, he has built custom frames for many professionals, including Leo van Vliet, Teun van Vliet, Bert Oosterbosch, Peter Pieters, Gerrit Solleveld, Robbie Mc Ewen and Theo Bos.
In 2003 and 2004 Jan van Dalen was invited as a test rider and material expert with among others Leo van Vliet, Steven Rooks, Erik Breukink, Gerrit Solleveld, Gerrie Knetemann and Peter Post by the Dutch Newspaper Telegraph to share his views about sports bikes on the market. These collected data and experience are published annually by the Telegraph as an attachment "The National Bicycle Test".
Jan was ready for a new challenge and in December 2011 moved to Spain, Moraira on the Costa Blanca where literally hundreds of cyclists prepare for the new season. Moraira is a small village and a great base for cyclists where they can practice their favorite sport in the Spanish sun and the extremely nice climate.
Your host Jan knows his way around, has set out many varied routes, has contacts with nice accommodations and knows the good restaurants in the area so you can enjoy an unforgettable cycling holiday. Groups participating in the annual Alpe d'Huzes event or who want to prepare for another tough event can also prepare themselves here for the highest possible achievement.
Jan is ready to welcome you and your friends here!
