Leisure Cycling Holidays in Spain 

Centre Based Cycling Holidays in Andalucia

Leisure cycling on the quiet roads and smooth tracks which criss cross the mountain sierras in and around the historic town of Ronda. British Cycling qualified guides with expert local knowledge take you on a tour of the area's best cycling routes - or if you prefer self guiding, we can create an itinerary to suit you. Join other cyclists or we can create a bespoke holiday just for you.

Ronda is the perfect base for a cycling holiday - located in a stunningly beaurtiful and unspoilt mountainous region beween two protected Natural Parks. Your holiday accommodation for centre based cycling holidays is either on a half board basis in our rural finca just (country farmhouse) just outside Ronda or stay in the centre of Ronda to fully explore the town. The finca is a typical Andalucian style house with a homely atmosphere, set amongst olive groves, with gardens and large pool. Hotels can be selected to your preference - small and romantic, practical on a budget or more luxurious, with spa and facilities. 

 

Experience Andalucia

Ronda is only an hour from Marbella and the resorts of the Costa del Sol but the atmosphere up here in the mountains is a world away from the tourist hotspots on the coast. On a centre based cycling holiday you will ride out from Ronda to explore the varied scenery in the Serrania de Ronda and Grazalema Natural Park. The mountain roads are generally quiet and very well maintained with plenty of hill climbs and thrilling descents to provide both good cycling challenges and some fun too. We wil visit traditional Andalucian white villages which are dotted through the mountains and valleys, all with a character of their own and many having changed little for hundreds of years. You wil be riding through some of the most stunning and unspoilt landscapes in Spain and the views at every turn will take your breath away. It is regon just crying out to be explored by bike, where you can experience for yourself the gentle pace of rural Andaucian life. And with over 300 days of sunshine a year, what's not to like!

Our Guides

MTB LEvel 2 guided holiday in Andalucia SPain

Your British Cycling qualified guide will suit every day’s riding on your cycling holiday to your level of experience. Whilst it is possible to self guide on the roads with local maps, our hybrid bikes can tackle easy tracks too and the guides know all the best places to make use of these to catch the best riding and views. You wont need to worry about navigation or where the nearest refreshment stop is and they can help you with those all important climbs, giving advice, tips and often jsut a bit of motivation at the important moments. 


Safety & Support

Our guides are fully qualified Outdoor First Aiders and carry a first aid kit at all times aswell as a wide range of tools & spares to deal with mechanical issues with your bike.

In order to maximise each day’s mountain biking, we do not restrict ourselves to circular rides – some of the best mtb trails head well out of Ronda into the surrounding countryside, so our minibus is available to bring us back to Ronda. The minibus is also available if at any time you find you have bitten off a bit more than you can chew and need a helping hand to get you home at the end of your day’s mountain biking. 


Self Guided Leisure Cycling Holidays

Some of our rides can be completed on a self-guided basis as they are nice circular loops which you can do unsupported. They are often quite long as there are limited roads through the mountains so for riders who may be daunted by some of the longer distances, we can arrange a self guided holiday with some rides enjoying a pick up at the end to bring you back to Ronda and maximise the route options available to you.
