Ronda to Olvera

Cycling - Moderate

This undulating route takes us through the hills and valleys to the north of Ronda and through a series of white villages dotted along the way. You will ride on mainly quiet country roads which wind their way through acres of olive groves and arable farmland. The villages lie low in the valleys or high on hill tops, so the route includes a couple of notable climbs.

From Ronda we pass through the small village of Arriate and on to the unusual village of Setenil de las Bodegas. Setenil sits in the narrow gorge eroded by the Rio Trejo river and is famous for its cavehouses, built into the limestone rock walls of the river valley hundreds of years ago. Many of the cavehouses are still used today (with a few modifications) as shops, houses and bars. We generally stop for a quick coffee here before riding up out of the river valley, past dramatic limestone cliffs and on through farmland to the small village of Torre Alhaquime. A final climb takes us through the hills to finish at Olvera. This imposing hilltop town boasts a large Arab fortress and huge, twin-towered Renaissance church, visible for miles around. There is time for optional refreshments here before we return to Ronda in our minibus.
