New Year XC MTB Holiday in Southern Spain

See in the New Year on a fabulous guided MTB holiday in the mountains of southern Spain

Intermediate level guided cross country mountain biking on superb natural trails in the Serrania de Ronda and unspoilt Natural Parks of western Andalucia. Fabulous mountain scenery, remote mtb trail riding, traditional white villages and hilltop towns – great local cuisine! – and the best weather in Europe for winter mountain biking. Join us to explore the diverse local landscapes – mountains, river valleys, forests and lakes – on local mountain trails, isolated farm tracks and natural single track. Our British Cycling qualified guides will take you into this largely undiscovered natural landscape and help hone your MTB skills along the way.
