WILL I BE FIT ENOUGH?

Our self-guided tours are designed for enthusiasts rather than Mountain bike experts. There are hills throughout the region which will need to be tackled but we keep daily distances manageable, particularly on days with more hills. On the longest days, take things steadily and ensure you take plenty of refreshment/snack stops and drink lots of water. 

Just remember that in summer, higher temperatures can make cycling seem harder so we suggest starting soon after 9am and aiming to finish before 2pm.

WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?

Double or twin room with en suite facilities in all locations.

Ronda hotel is normally 4****. In most of the villages you will stay in traditional, family-run Andalucian-style hotels close to the village centre, tapas bars and cafes.

In summer we prioritise hotels with pools where possible.

What to Bring

The essential kit to enjoy your biking holiday

  • Helmet (bring you own or use ours - free of charge) 
  • Padded cycling shorts (essential kit for staying comfortable over a few days' riding)
  • Your own saddle if you prefer - let us know if you are bringing one
  • Cycling gloves
  • Cycling tops or T shirts
  • Sports bra (ladies only!)
  • Socks
  • Cycling shoes (let us know if you want clip-in pedals) or trainers - firm soles are best.
  • Sunglasses
  • Sun cream and after-sun lotion
  • Casual clothes, swimwear and footwear
  • Health insurance policy document (for UK travellers, a European Health Insurance Card, EHIC, will give you access to reduced cost medical services in Spain but it is not an alternative to travel insurance. It will not cover any private medical healthcare or costs such as mountain rescue, repatriation costs or lost or stolen property. Therefore it is important to have both an EHIC and a valid private travel insurance policy. Some insurers now insist you hold an EHIC and many will waive the excess if you have one.
  • The EHIC is available free at  https://www.ehic.org.uk/Internet/startapplication.do

For winter riding

  • extra body layers with long sleeves (thin thermal tops are great)
  • leggings or cycling tights
  • light waterproof/windproof jacket 
  • neck scarf / snood (great as sweat bands in the summer and for warmth in the winter)
  • warm fleece and jacket for the evenings
