Mountain Bike Rides and Day Trips - Ronda

Want to explore the countryside near Ronda? Then join us for a day on one of our guided mountain bike rides. Whether you are an experienced cross country mountain biker or simply want to enjoy a fun tour on two wheels, we offer rides to suit all levels of experience and fitness.

All our mountain bike rides are led by a fully qualified British Cycling MTB guide with expert knowledge of the local tracks, trails and singletrack.

Most of the trails we ride are unmarked and only through years of exploration have we been able to put together our routes in the Sierras and Natural Parks surrounding Ronda.

Try Our e-MTB's

We also have electric MTBs available for our guided mountain bike rides. They can be used on the range of rides below or use them for our more specific e-MTB routes; the specific e-MTB rides are designed with the electric bikes in mind, taking you longer distances and up climbs that we would normally avoid on our regular mountain bike rides.

Guided Mountain Bike Rides Schedule

We are very flexible in our scheduling and don’t run set trips on set days. In other words, simply let us know the date(s) you are available, your ability level or the ride you like from those featured below and we will arrange a mountain bike ride to suit you.

Self Guided Routes  

Look for the GPS symbol for our routes which are adaptable for riding self guided. You can take yourself off for the day, with plenty of time to enjoy the scenery, local culture and maybe a tapas or two along the way. We don't operate shop hours, so you can spend as long as you like on the tour and return the bikes to us when you are finished. For self-guiding we provide a detailed map and we pre-load your chosen route on to one of our easy-to-use Garmin GPS devices so you dont need to worry about finding your way.

  • Footwear - Trainers or firm soled shoes. No open toed sandals or flip flops.

  • Padded cycling shorts will help to make your ride more comfortable but are not essential (gel saddle covers available). 
  • Cycling gloves will improve comfort on the bike and also provide protection for your hands.
  • Water - Bring extra water for rides in high summer.
  • Snacks - Refreshment stops usually scheduled for the end of every ride and also midway for longer rides. We recommend everyone to bring some snacks for mid-ride re-fuelling, particularly if you are riding with children.
  • Rucksacks - the best way to carry spare clothes, suncream etc. Essential for longer rides in the summer when you will need to bring extra water. No bags allowed hanging from the handle bars.
