El Burgo XC Challenge

e-MTB Ride - Challenging

This ride explores the forests around the white village of El Burgo. The ride has been designed for our e-MTBS, with challenging ups and downs throughouts. The e-MTBs allow us to take on more climbing, so we get to enjoy even more of the fun descents which abound in these forests.

We start from an amazing spot, high above El Burgo in the remote Sierra Blanquilla, with views across to the mountains of the Sierra de las Nieves. An opening, challenging descent down into El Burgo, along an ancient single track trail,  gives a first taste of what the bikes are capable of. We then take to the lower pine forests of the Sierra de las Nieves, where we explore the forest trails and use sections of single track to link the route together. After the final climb to the Puerto de la Mujer we follow one of our favourite single track routes, with technical challenges and flowy sections across the pine-covered mountains to our finish point back in El Burgo. Time for optional refreshemets before we return to Ronda in our minibus.

Note: This ride is for experienced MTB riders who are confident with descending on loose rocky trails and who enjoy natural and technical single track. Good fitness is also required - whilst the eMTBs help with the climbs, they don't do all the work!
