Biking day trips for all levels of rider, whether you are looking for an easy ride for just an hour or two or for something more adventurous. We cycle on quiet country roads or on farm tracks and trails. We can also arrange a ride out to a local bodega, where you will finish with a tasting of their organic wines and tapas or lunch.

Hike and Bike in Ronda have mountain bikes, hybrid bikes and e-bikes, which will make light work of even the most challenging hill climbs. Choose a guided ride with a British Cycling qualified guide or we can provide a route pre-loaded onto a Garmin GPS for you to ride at your own pace.

For walkers, our guides can take you on quiet pathways into the hills near Ronda or we can head out to a local white village or visit the Cueva del Gato waterfall and natural pool. There are so many lovely spots within just a short distance of the town.
