Short on time but still you would like to get out and about on a bike?

Fancy a day or two of fantastic riding and great cycling country? We have a number of trips for you to choose from in the countryside around Granada and our base in historic Alhama de Granada for different levels of riders.

Each cycling day ride is designed for different levels (from experienced roadies to beginners) and we have options for self-guided or guided. These rides could be just what your holiday needs after spending time in too many museums or lying on the beach at the Costa del Sol and needing the urge to burn off some of that sangría and paella.

Escape Granada city life and cycle out on some more tranquil roads and into the countryside that offers some staggering views of the Sierra Nevada and its most fertile surroundings.

Ride 1 – “River Cycling” – Easy – Hybrid bike – Guided – 30km. Follow the River Genil as it flows from the Sierra Nevada and feeds the rest of Andalucía. Enjoy this flat and gentle cycle with cafe stops and shady spots for rest.
Time: 4 hours. Price €85 pp,
Ride 2 – “In Columbus´ Footsteps” – Moderate – Guided – 60km. Explore this historic region, visit Santa Fe where Columbus received his commission to explore the “new world”, where Poet Garcia Lorca wrote his evocative poems and Kings and Queens trod.
A mainly rolling route with spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
Time: 6 hours. Price €95 pp, €10 extra if prefer road bike (hybrid hire included). (minimum 2 people)
