Andalucian eMTB Day Tours

Guided Cycling Tours with Electric Pedal Assist Mountain Bikes

Want to explore further, longer or more often? Our CUBE Reaction Hybrid Pro's are your ideal companion. Built around the superbly efficient Bosch CX drive system, our adaptable hardtail will help you tame any trail. With a plush, accurate-steering Suntour suspension fork and light, grippy 2.6 inch Schwalbe tyres to keep you on track, a Shimano 10 speed transmission with a new wide-range 11-42T cassette to provide a gear for every situation and powerful hydraulic disc brakes to keep your speed in check, there's everything you need here to expand your off-road and touring horizons. From the first pedal stroke to the last our ebikes will help you on your way.

Our e-bikes are great for leisure riders who want a helping hand with the hills on roads and unsurfaced tracks. See our Leisure e-bike Tours for easy route options, suitable for anyone.

Our e-bikes are also designed to be tough enough to cope with challenging and technical off-road riding, so even seasoned mountain bikers can have fun on these bikes. Intermediate and exprerienced mtb riders can enjoy tackling rocky and uneven ground, roots and ruts and twisting and technical trails and because the e-bikes take much of the strain on long hill climbs, you can ride further and faster when the going gets tough. See our eMTB Tours, graded accorded to fitness/effort level and technical mtb skills requirement. N.B. Some of these routes explore the mountains behind the Costa del Sol, perfect for guests staying on the coast.

Will I be fit enough?

 

Our eMTB routes are designed for leisure cyclists right through to experienced XC mountain bikers. There are hills and mountains throughout the region which need to be tackled but we keep distances manageable and within the range capabilities of our ebikes, particularly on routes  where less experienced riders will require more assistance from the ebike. To ride our challenging routes you will still require a good level of fitness on the bike.

Just remember that in summer, higher temperatures can make cycling seem harder so taking this into consideration is strongly advised when choosing a route.

 

What to Bring?

  • We supply bikes, helmets and water bottles. 
  • Footwear - Trainers or firm soled shoes. No open toed sandals or flip flops. 
  • Clothing - Loose, comfortable clothing or sportswear. Thin layers are better than 1 thick top as they are easier to remove during the ride if you get warm. Padded cycling shorts and cycling gloves will help to make your ride more comfortable but are not necessary. A thin windproof jacket is advisable on rides which go higher into the mountains or include long downhil sections (see individual ride details).
  • Rucksacks - Optional, to carry spare clothes, suncream etc. Essential for longer rides in the summer when you will need to bring extra water. No bags allowed hanging from the handle bars.
  • Snacks - Refreshment stops usually scheduled for the end of your ride and also midway for longer rides. Bring your own if you will need something else to keep you going (particularly famillies with children as they tend to need re-fuelling mid-ride!)
  • Other - sunglasses, suncream!

For winter riding

  • extra body layers with long sleeves (thin thermal tops are great)
  • leggings or cycling tights
  • light waterproof/windproof jacket 
  • neck scarf / snood (great as sweat bands in the summer and for warmth in the winter)
