Details

Mountain bike tour map in Andalucia SpainTake an epic, self-guided mountain bike tour through western Andalucia, from the coastal beaches of Malaga, up into the mountains of Ronda, through the Grazalema Natural Park and continuing northwards, across open plains to the historic city of Seville. 

On this tour you will cycle through beautiful and unspoiled countryside, maximising the amount of off-road riding and experiencing the variety of natural trails which criss-cross this region. We have designed this route to include a mix of single-and double-track, unsurfaced tracks and some sections of connecting country roads. Daily distances allow you to cover plenty of ground, with a mix of easier riding, some more technical sections and some days with notable climbs, but nothing that should trouble any reasonably competent mountain biker.

You will pass through small white villages and witness the changing character and landscape of coast, mountains and city. Every day of this week-long mountain bike tour offers something special.

Safe Trip Home

Included in our prices:
  • 7 nights accommodation on B&B basis 
  • Quality Hardtail MTB
  • Helmet & water bottle (or bring your own)
  • Route GPS (phone App with daily routes, profiles and maps, no Data-usage required) or GPX files
  • Luggage transfers
  • We operate locally to Ronda so support is always close at hand if needed
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 you be staying?

Your tour goes through a mix of large and small towns and more rural areas, so the accommodation style and standard will vary greatly. In the larger towns, we usually book 4**** or 3*** hotels; outside of these you will stay in countryside haciendas, boutique B&Bs or traditional-style village hotels. All rooms have en-suite facilities. Our selections are based on clean and comfortable accommodation (if sometimes quite simple), friendly owners and staff, a warm welcome, bike storage and where possible a swimming pool too.

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
  • Rucksack or Camelbak for carrying water, suncream, spare clothes etc. 
  • Casual clothes, swimwear and footwear
  • Health insurance policy document
  • N.B. Post-Brexit, UK travellers are recommended to travel with the new GHIC (Global Health Insurance Card), the replacement for the old EHIC (European Health Insurance Card). A GHIC entitles you to state-provided medical treatment if you fall ill or have an accident in any EU county. The cards cover pre-existing medical conditions as well as emergency care but are not an alternative to travel insurance. Therefore, it is important to have both a GHIC and a valid private travel insurance policy. Some insurers now insist you hold a GHIC and many will waive the excess if you have one.
  • The GHIC 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
