An epic MTB tour between 2 iconic Spanish towns, through rugged mountain scenery and unspoiled countryside.
Ride from the coastal beaches of Malaga up into the mountains of Ronda, through the Grazalema Natural Park, and on to the historic city of Seville. On this tour you will cycle through beautiful and unspoiled countryside, maximising the amount of off-road riding and experiencing the variety of natural trails which criss-cross this region. We have designed this route to include a mix of single-and double-track, unsurfaced tracks and some sections of connecting country roads. Daily distances allow you to cover plenty of ground, with a mix of easier riding, some more technical sections and some days with notable climbs, but nothing that should trouble any reasonably competent mountain biker. You will pass through small white villages and witness the changing character and landscape of coast, mountains and city. Every day of this week-long mountain bike tour offers something special.
