Guided or Self-Guided Mountain Biking Holidays in Andalucia, Spain

Enjoy a guided or self-guided mountain biking holiday in Ronda, Andalucia. Ronda is perfect for both less experienced and more technically competent mountain bikers, with an extensive network of dirt tracks, natural cross-country trails and single-track pathways.

Our British Cycling or IMBA-qualified mountain bike guides have an unrivalled knowledge of the region’s hidden, unmarked trails and can take you on varied and adaptable rides each day, with vehicle support, so you can explore the wider region. Or we can provide GPX tracks for you to guide yourself and explore at your own pace.

The riding and the scenery are stunning, with few riders out on the trails and many route options for you to choose from. The landscapes surrounding Ronda varies with every ridge and valley and with 2 natural parks next door it makes a great alternative to mountain biking in the Sierra Nevada.

Riding Level

Intermediate to Challenging :

Routes are selected according to rider levels of experience and fitness. 

Our most popular centre-based mountain bike holidays are at an intermediate level and are suitable for regular mountain bikers with a good level of general fitness. Our riding is predominantly XC cross country on natural trails – there is a great mix of single track, mountain paths, farm trails and countryside ways, rather than miles of tended single track and downhill routes. This region is mountainous so every day of riding will include some level of ascent and descent. 

N.B. there is very limited easy mountain biking in this mountainous area so we do not recommend a full week for beginner mountain bikers. However, we can do fantastic combined hiking and biking holidays for less experienced riders who still want to get out to see the local countryside,

Daily Distance :

30 - 50km per day, adjusted to suit rider fitness levels. 

Guided holidays include vehicle support throughout. On self-guided holidays, pick-ups are included on some routes

Availability *** All year round. Choose the dates which suit you. Start on any day of the week.

Solo traveller and single occupancy prices available upon request. N.B. Supplements may apply during Easter week or major public holidays due to inflated accommodation prices.

** Shorter or longer holidays can be arranged - contact us for bespoke planning and pricing.
