Guided Leisure Cycling Day Trips - Ronda

Cycling in the Ronda mountains | cycling Andalucia

All cycling day trips are with a fully qualifed British Cycling guide. We are very flexible in our scheduling and don’t run set trips on set days  - we book rides on a first come, first served basis which allows maximum flexibility for you to fit in a biking day trip within your holiday plans.

Cycling day trips are designed to be enjoyable and satisfying without requiring extensive road bike experience. Most cycling day trips include some hill climbing due to the mountainous terrain but the roads are generally quiet and smooth and the scenery is fabulous. The price of your cycling day trip includes the hire of one of our 29" wheel Hybrid bikes, which are comfortable, easy to ride and ideally suited to leisure road cycling in this area. Non-circular rides include minibus support.

If you are staying in or near Ronda, cycling is a great way to get outside the town and explore the wider region. If you are staying on the coast (Marbella, Puerto Banus, San Pedro), Ronda is just a 50 minute drive from the Costa del Sol, so it's easy to join us for a day cycling in the Andalucian mountains.

If you enjoy sampling local wines and food then take a look at our vineyard bike tour by "Bike and Bodega".
