Cycling Day Tours - Ronda 

Want to explore the sweeping mountain roads and white villages or a bodega near Ronda by bike? Then join us on a guided cycling day tour. 

Our cycling day tours are designed to be enjoyable and satisfying without requiring extensive road bike experience. Due to the mountainous terrain in this area, most cycling day tours include some hill climbing  but the roads are generally quiet and smooth and the scenery is fabulous.  You will be accompanied by a fully qualified British Cycling guide who will help you with the hill climbs if you are not used to them and will ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and fun day out.  

Hybrid Bikes or Electric Bikes

We provide a quality 29" wheel hybrid  bike or, if you feel you want some more help on the hills, we can provide e-bikes. N.B. We also have more tours specifically for e-bikes - read more  here. E-bike tours are available guided or self guided.

Guided Road Cycling Day Tours

We are very flexible in our scheduling and don’t run set trips on set days. In other words, simply let us know the date(s) you are available, the distances/ascent you are used to cycling or a named ride from those featured below and we will arrange a leisure cycling day tour to suit you.
