Here it is, the ultimate place to place mountain biking trip in Andalucia. This journey will take you from the Mediterranean through two UNESCO biosphere reserves, four Natural Parks, past the highest peaks in western Andalucia, alongside rivers and lakes, through olive groves, pine and oak forests, to finish at the white sands of the Costa de la Luz.

It’s a heady concoction, aimed at getting even the most seasoned Skedaddler grinning. Accommodation throughout the week will be in tasteful and traditional small hotels situated in ancient Moorish castle topped ‘Pueblos Blancos’.

Although riding will not be overly technical, there is still plenty to test your skill and endurance. The days are linked with fast trails, ancient roads, lashings of fresh air and slick singletrack meaning the regular off road rider with a decent level of fitness should relish this challenge.

As we head north away from the busy Costa del Sol, the true ancient land of Al Andaluz is reached; mountainsides dotted with white villages surrounded by terraced land. You will experience true Andaluz hospitality, excellent mountain cuisine of stews, game and delicious cured meats and cheeses, not forgetting the fantastic seafood on offer when you arrive at the Atlantic.

Riding highlights throughout this fun packed trip include the 1000 metre descent out of the Sierra de las Nieves, the thrilling ride through the terraces and olive groves to the Rio Grande, the challenge of crossing the Lifa pass, with its magnificent views down to Ronda and beyond, and the miles and miles of beautiful singletrack in the Guadiaro valley. Put all this together with the cheap flights to Malaga from throughout Europe and the UK and lashings of bright Spanish sunshine and we’ve come up with a beauty.
