Your eyes close... Trapped alone in a tiny plastic and metal bubble, barely enough room for you and your bike, suspended, being dragged up the mountain... You spot singletrack traversing the bottom of a steep rocky outcrop then vanishing into the treeline... The Mediterranean sea shimmers in the morning sun behind you... Twenty minutes and the tops looming, eight trails down, but which one is best for you?.
Your eyes open, a nano second memory, barely a moment of just one day of the experience you can expect on one of our trips.
Add into the mix passionate, professional guides with unsurpassed local knowledge and you have the making of a great 2 wheeled adventure.

“El Chorro” proper
Home to the famous “Camino Del Rey” (Kings Pathway). “El Chorro” offers an abundance of riding from forest singletrack to Moab style slick rock. The area has a number of uplift options, we cherry pick the best, taking a break around Two o’clock for Spanish brunch/ tapas, then continue until we are again or its beer o’clock.
Montes De Mijas. A day at the seaside
The Antenna route, Sram test track, this zone has more routes than you can shake a stick at. Some of the best singletrack riding in Spain can be found here, we split the day in two halves and take a leisurely lunch by the sea.
