The Vuelta a La Rioja (English: Tour of La Rioja) is a regional Spanish road bicycle race held in La Rioja. From 2005 to 2008, it was a 2.1 category race on the UCI Europe Tour.

The event is facing financial challenges in 2009. Wrote velonews.com:

Economic woes in Spain have forced organizers to reduce the formerly three-day Rioja tour into a one-day race around the famous wine-growing region. Rather than risk not having any race at all, organizers opted to downsize in 2009 with hopes of reviving the stage-race format next season.[1]
