Mountain biking/cycling and organised downhill mountain bike days and Mountain bike/cycling holidays arranged.
The sierra espuña and the surrounding mountain roads are perfect for road cycling (many professionals use the local roads for training purposes i.e. Tour de france, la vuelta etc) and obviously mountain biking within the nature park is phenomenal, not all routes for road cyclists are mountainous so its not too difficult to find a route for an easier ride as there are many canal routes cut through the mountains as well, making it perfect for families and older groups.
A gentle mountain bike day with virtually no pedalling, includes the bike, safety equipment, the guide, the transfer to the top of the espuna, support vehicle, and a 4 course lunch is available. (12 years and upwards)
They do not not suggest to ride from late May to early October because of the extreme heat during that time.
