Mountain Bike Holidays, Spain
Mountain biking holidays for riders of all abilities in Andalucia, southern Spain. Andalucia has a well deserved reputation for having some of the world's best single track trails, technical down hills, free riding and cross-country mountain biking, combine this with the wonderful weather, over 300 days of sunshine, and you have the perfect location for all year round biking. From our mountain biking base in Montecorto, the Serrania de Ronda, Sierra de Nieves and Grazalema Natural Park are all on our doorstep offering you a wide and varied selection of routes from epic cross country trails, mile after mile of testing single track, tough climbs, fast flowing down hills as well as some more gentle rides.
The terrain is well suited to going off road for mountain biking. From blasting down hill and excellent free riding to varied and testing terrain, but more importantly, quality single-track that may leave you breathless and at times worn out, but, grinning from ear to ear at the end of the ride!
During the week, Ashley who is a MTB instructor, will show you a few simple techniques that will get you riding more confidently. The coaching that you will receive is built into your daily riding. Those riders who take advantage of this free training, most will leave their andalucian cycling experience riding drops offs and switchbacks, that at the beginning of the week you would have considered to difficult.
We incorporate skills practices into your standard days mountain biking that develop braking technique, body positioning and balance on the bike. This often means that we will stop at sections of the trail that require a new level of skill for on-the-trail coaching. This informal training continues throughout your holiday, resulting in an improvement in your technical ability and, therefore, increasing your confidence.
When you combine the excellent riding and perfect climate that we have in Andalucia with the ease of flying to southern Spain you will discover that year round sunshine mountain biking is only a few hours away.
