Cycling Day Tours - Ronda 

Want to explore the sweeping mountain roads and white villages near Ronda by bike? Or cycle to a bodega for vineyard tour and wine tasting (with minibus return to Ronda!)? Then join us on a guided cycling day tour. 

Our cycling day tours are designed to be enjoyable and satisfying days out without requiring extensive road riding 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.

Note: We also have tours specifically for e-bikes read more here. E-bike tours are available guided or self guided.
