Ronda to Setenil de las Bodegas

Mountain Bike - Easy to Moderate 

An easy, 30km ride, suitable for families and leisure riders or an alternative, moderate route up to 45km for mountain bikers. We ride directly out from Ronda via a mix of quiet roads and tracks, to the cavehouse village of Setenil de las Bodegas. This is a really adaptable route, which we can change to make shorter or easier once the guide sees how you are getting along.

You will pass through varied rural Andalucian countryside, including vineyards and arable farmland, along old Roman routes and undulating trails. In Setenil, we see where many of the houses, bars and restaurants are a unique type of “cavehouse", built directly into the limestone rock of the river valley walls. There is time for optional tapas and refreshments at one of the cavehouse bars, sitting beneath huge, overhanging rock ledges before we return to Ronda in our minibus. 

Note: The easy option takes a mainly flat route, cross country, with a final descent into the white village of Setenil de las Bodegas. The moderate route takes us down into the Guadiaro river valley, through the small town of Arriate, and then back up past hillside bodegas and into the countryside of the Serrania de Ronda, before finally descending into Setenil - so more hill climbing and some rougher trails.
