Descend from the vertiginous peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range on a half-day downhill bike tour from Granada. In the beautiful Sierra Nevada Biosphere Reserve, you’ll ride downhill from an altitude of 6,600 feet (2,000 meters) while you admire the forests, lakes and valleys of Europe’s second highest mountain range. Alongside your guide, you’ll pedal at your own pace and stop intermittently to admire white villages and scenic views. All safety equipment is provided free of charge.
After a couple of days shuffling around the Alumbra and the old town streets this downhill Bike tour was one of the best things we have done so far in spain. The tour was extremely well organised with lovely guides and very good E mountain bikes. We rode from the high Sierra Nevada outside Granada right down into the city centre! it was excellent. No queing, no traffic and some wonderful scenery and very easy! I can highly recommend this tour. Philip Byron Bay Australia
Love the outdoors and tired of Cathedrals? If there is anything you SHOULD DO while in Granada is this Tour. Granada is surrounded by some of the most beautiful outdoors imaginable and these guys will take of you! It seems expensive, but just the drive up into the mountains is worth the trip You then hop on your ebike mountain bike and go. Yes you do have to pedal and there are some uphill stretches, but on these bikes you cover 2 national forest and the Serra Nevada mountains. The equipment is really good stuff, they have everything including jackets...all you have to do is show up!!! My son 21 and myself 59 had so much fun! Need a break, hop in the Van that is following along and then hop out to continue. It just doesn't get any better than this!
We've been in Spain 2 weeks and this ranks up as the number one thing we've done.
I was worried about the small number of reviews posted, but they are all accurate. This tour is one of the most fun tours we have ever done. Our family of 5, including 3 young adult children and 2 middle aged parents, had a blast riding ebikes for the first time. We were scheduled originally on a day that was forecast for rain, but the guide contacted me to reschedule on a sunny day with perfect weather rather than offer a full refund. You take a 30 minute van ride outside the city and the guides set up the bikes for you. One rides with you and the other follows in the van far enough away that you never see it unless you take a break. They offer water and snacks for refreshments and are flexible about stopping when you need to. The bikes and helmets were brand new and seemed top notch Bosch motors. There is definitely both up and downhill riding on wide dirt paths, pavement, and easy single track, but the e assist makes it as fun or more riding up hill. I would say as long as you are comfortable riding a bike, you can do this tour. The views of the Sierra Nevadas were spectacular and it was definitely different than what you would normally do. We rode about 30 km and opted out of riding the cobblestone path at the end into Granada, ending our tour at an incredible vista overlooking Granada and the Alhambra. We were sent photos and a video of our ride marking the map and elevation immediately after. I highly recommend this tour and would only suggest the guides ask their clients to post more reviews.
WARNING! This is an excellent and beautiful bike ride, but not exactly as advertised! It is not for every skill level. Our group was very active and athletic, and struggled to complete it. It is not ALL downhill, so be prepared to ride both up and down hills while on the rocky, mountainous trail. We biked for 6 hours, appx. 46km. By the end of the tour, we were very sore and tired! We stopped at a beautiful lookout, and then made our way through town. If you do not trust yourself riding a bike around people and heavy car traffic, this tour is not for you. We were riding and weaving in and out of traffic throughout the city after dark at the end of our tour. Our guide, Jullian, was excellent! He was knowledgeable and understanding. The only thing I wished he had done, was send us the photos and map of our route like he had promised. Magnificent views, but not for anyone who is not in great shape already!
This was truly amazing. The electric mountain bikes were new, and in really good condition. The countryside is spectacular, and the guides were kind, helpful and made it a great experience. We were picked up in central granada and driven for 45 mins up the mountains in a van. From our starting point in the mountain we cruised along mostly off-road wide paths towards granada, there was a fair amount of uphill. which is where the electric part of the bike really helps. highly recomended.
My daughter ended up taking my place on this tour due to illness. Here’s what she had to say: My brother (17) and I (28) had a fantastic time doing the e-bike tour. It’s a wonderful way to spend half a day in Granada and do something a bit different. The views are spectacular, the pace just right and we had an excellent guide in Julian. While Julian rode with us, the owner followed us in a van and both men were exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable and professional. You can tell they love what they do! I expected it to be freezing (we went in December) but it was actually very pleasant with the sun out. Great bikes - I felt very safe. Helmet and gloves were also provided. Highly recommended!
By far, this was one of the best highlights of our 2 week trip in Spain! My wife and I are both avid cyclists, so this excursion into the Sierra Nevada park sounded fantastic to begin with. And we were also very curious about e-bikes, e-MTB to be more specific, so more on that below!
We met our guides promptly in the morning in a spot that is very close by to the place we are staying. We hopped into the van and it was a good 45 minute drive up into the Sierra Nevada mountains with fantastic scenery all around us. Once at the top, we begin the journey on our e-MTBs. It was our first time trying out an MTB with an e-assist system, and let me tell you, IT WAS CRAZY FUN!
The 4-hour journey was a blast and you can take it as easy as you want at a leisurely pace that I think almost everyone can do and let the e-assist do its magic. Basically, as long as you can pedal on a bike, you are good for this trip. Or, if you are already an experienced cyclist, you can have a LOT of fun and blast off the trails and enjoy some beautiful downhill moments through pine forests and fantastic vistas. At every moment, you are surrounded by beautiful scenery and we also learned more about the surrounding villages and flora and fauna from our guide Maria who was equally fantastic. The vistas were, how do I say it... muy bonito!
If we ever get the chance to do this tour again, we would do it in a heartbeat, and also go on some of the other tours too! I'd say that this was easily one of the most memorable parts of our trip and was a wonderful start to our 2-week cycling journey. Highly recommended!
Fantastic way to spend 4 hours, scenery was fantastic. Maria our guide was lovely and informative as was here colleague who met us at certain spots to provide refreshments. The electric bikes were amazing, making the cycling easy and enjoyable, it still felt like a challenge, especially to a sport phobic person like me!. Would definitely recommend this adventure! Thank you.
This is truly an experience of a lifetime! If you can ride a bike, then this is an experience you don't want to miss in Granada!
We started our day by meeting at the pick up point and taking about a 30 min car ride up in to the mountains. We got our bikes, safety gear and an orientation on how to operate the eBikes. We had a van that followed us on most of our tour in case anyone of us did not want to continue. They even brought water and bananas for us! The guides were very friendly, we did everything at our own pace, and safety minded. They also know the terrain quite well! They would stop and tell us the important sites, history as well as point out wild herbs growing.
The tour starts in the mountains with fairly wide gravel trails, then paved roads as you get closer to the city. Once you enter the city, you are on cobble stone sidewalk with views of the Alhambra! Finally, a small 10 minute ride in the city and we ended up back at our pick up point in the morning.
The views were just breath taking, we stopped several times just to take it all in! We were in Spain for 2.5 weeks, and this is by far the best thing we did! We all would do this again in a heart beat if given the chance!
Great trip, one of the best ways to see the Sierra Nevada.
Well organized got picked up and dropped back to our hotel in Granada, knowledgeable guide told us all about the Sierra Nevada local flora and fauna, good value for money the trip last for half day and all equipment was brand new.
