Mountain Bike Rides and Day Trips - Ronda

Want to explore the countryside near Ronda? Then join us for a day on a guided mountain bike ride. Whether you are an experienced cross country mountain biker or simply want to enjoy a fun day out 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 / IMBA mountain bike guide. Most of the trails in this area are unmarked but our guides have expert knowledge of the routes, tracks and singletrack around Ronda and through the surrounding countryside.

Booking Schedule for Guided Mountain Bike Rides

Totally flexible booking! Simply let us know the date you wish to ride and your chosen MTB route from those featured below. Not sure which MTB day tour to pick? Then let us know your ability level or preferences and we will make a suggestion.

Try Our e-MTB's

Electric mountain bikes are also available for our guided MTB rides. Use them on the range of rides below or on our specific e-MTB routes, with longer distances and some uphill climbs that we normally avoid on our regular mountain bike rides.

Self Guided Routes 

Look for the GPS symbol for our routes which are adaptable for self guided riding. 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.
