MTB Route in El Burgo - Puerta de Lifa
Exploring the Serrania de Ronda, Sierra de Grazalema and Sierra de las Nieves is one of the perks of doing what we do at Hike + Bike. The point of exploration is not only to find where it is great to ride but also where not to ride. It takes a lot of time and energy checking out the trails and paths along rivers, through the valleys, forests and over the mountain peaks around our base in Ronda. It is also quite difficult putting them all together to create rides which can be graded for our customers.When a route comes together which we know is good for our customers we get a great sense of satisfaction but none more than seeing customers raise a glass at the the end of the ride and say "Cheers that was great"
The post below shows details of one of our new routes which takes us over the Lifa pass heading North from Ronda and taking in some brilliant single track along the way. We were particualrly happy with this route because we know that most MTB tour operators who come to this area take people over the Lifa pass from El Burgo and head to Ronda, this unfortunatly involves a lot of bike pushing. Our way is completly rideable, grin endusing and a challenge for intermediate riders and a blast for experienced riders. Take a look at the post to see some great pictures of the route.
