The big day!

Day One: San Juan to Ponce – 155 miles (updated January 17, 2017)

The first day of La Vuelta is the longest and the most challenging. It begins in historic Old San Juan and heads east past some of the most popular beaches in Puerto Rico to the breakfast rest stop at El Conquistador Resort, where you can scan the horizon for views of Culebra, Vieques, and St. Thomas. From there, you will ride through Maunabo and climb to the top of Camino Nuevo. Take a moment at the top to enjoy the view before a fast descent to lunch at the Punta Tuna lighthouse. Then it is a 60-mile spin to Ponce for dinner (on your own), dancing and a well-deserved night’s rest.
