Hike + Bike Week  

Hike + Bike holidays uniquely offer a mix of walking and cycling, perfect for walkers who want to have a day or two out on a bike or for riders who want to swap their bikes for boots for a couple of days. Cycle and hike your way through the hills and mountains of Andalucia - tell us your experience level and we will ensure the routes suit you. Choose a guided holiday (with vehicle support and lunches included) or go self-guided.

On this combined mountain biking and hiking holiday, you will explore the unspoilt countryside and natural cross country trails of the Serrania de Ronda and the mountainous Natural Parks to the east and north of the town. Bike rides can either use mountain bikes and be mainly off road (level to suit experience) or using hybid bikes and riding on the sweeping mountain roads of the region.

Mixing it Up

BIke rides: Mountain bike rides tend to be at our Easy - Moderate level, requiring little/no specific mountain biking skills - guests only need to be reasonably confident on a bike and happy to ride for 2-4 hours each day. We can add in something trickier if you prefer - just let us know at the time of enquiry. If you prefer to ride on the roads, rides will be from Moderate to Challenging, as there are no easy road routes in this mountainous area. The climbs can be tough but the views are superb; we always take our rides at a comfortable pace so you can enjoy the scenery as well as the riding itself!  

Walks: Our Hike + Bike walks are about enjoying the countryside, visiting local white villages and visiting interesting or historic sites. Again, we we can include a more challenging mountain walk or two if you prefer. We can be flexible on level if you let us know what you are looking for. We can also be flexible according to your preferences as to the split of number of days spent walking and biking.

300+ days of sunshine a year and the natural geography of the area create ideal landscape and conditions for outdoor actives. Dry, dusty trails wind their way through cultivated hills and valleys, surrounded by dramatic mountain landscapes. Lakes, rivers and, ultimately, the Mediterranean Sea provide scenic backdrops and often welcome cooling relief at the end of a long days walk or bike ride.

Accommodation 

Our guided centre-based holidays are based either in a boutique country hotel located just outside Ronda or in Ronda town itself, in a 4**** or equivalent hotel. Let us know which you prefer at time of enquiry. 

 

Ronda

The historic town of Ronda is justly famous for its many sites of interest – the Puente Nuevo (New Bridge), Arab Baths, Bullring and many other beautiful buildings from its Roman, Moorish and Renaissance past. The town also has an excellent selection of bars, restaurants and cafes, so you will never be short of places to eat, drink or simply watch the world go by over leisurely tapas and a beer. The Andalucians love to celebrate, so there are festivals, ferias and local events in most months of the year.  During the summer months, much of life takes place outdoors, so there is always something to see and do.  


Our Guides - Safety & Support 

Each day's guided activity is led by one of our guides - British Cycling qualified and Outdoor First Aiders. They have intimate knowledge of the local area so know the best trails and also provide interesting information on the local sights, culture and history as you go. They carry a first aid kit at all times, aswell as a wide range of bike tools and spares to deal with mechanical bike issues.

In order to maximize each day's activity, 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 activity. 


Bikes 

For our Hike + Bike weeks, we use our fleet of quality 29" wheel mountain bikes or hybid bikes. They are easy to ride, have great gearing to help with any climbs involved and hydraulic disc brakes for powerful braking and control.
