The historic town of Ronda sits high up on a clifftop, surrounded by mountains. The views directly from the town out to the mountains are fantastic but for people who like the idea of getting out into the countryside on a bike but arent experienced or regular riders, the area can seem a bit daunting. So we are frequently asked if we have any easy bike rides close to the town which can be enjoyed over a few hours and require little or no technical riding experience. The simple answer to this is yes! There are a number of easier local routes which our British Cycling qualified guides can take you on. They have proved a great option for many visitors to the town who want to explore some rural countryside without needing to be super-fit or experienced mtb-ers.
On these easier local rides, our guides ensure you see the best of the local countryside without any risk of losing your way or struggling with any bike issues. The rides use a mixture of farm tracks, paths and short sections of road. We have tours which visit interesting local sights and traditional white villages (pueblos blancos), and also one which finishes at a local bodega for wine tasting. The rides take you through local farmland (vineyards, olive groves, almond groves, fields of wheat or other arable crops), holm oak woods and past old rural properties. Depending on the season, you may also get to enjoy beautiful displays of wild spring flowers, watch the olive harvest or see local "Rondeños" simply going about their daily lives. Wherever or whenever you ride here, rest assured you will always enjoy great views and get a taste of real Andalucian rural life.
