Riding mountain bikes from Ronda to Setenil, Spain

​ ​Ronda to Setenil de las Bodegas

 Mountain Bike - Easy to Moderate 


An easy, 30km ride, suitable for families and leisure riders, or an alternative, the moderate route up to 45km for mountain bikers. We ride directly out from Ronda via a mix of quiet roads and tracks, to the cave house village of Setenil de las Bodegas. This is a really adaptable route, which we can change to make it 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 “cave house", built directly into the limestone rock of the river valley walls. There is time for optional tapas and refreshments at one of the cave house bars, sitting beneath huge, overhanging rock ledges before we return to Ronda in our minibus.

Route details for MTB ride to Setenil from Ronda

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.

Note: Routes for self-guided riders are adapted for logistical reasons, in some cases, this means a different meeting point and a variation in the distance compared to the statistics shown on this page.
