Mountain bike/cycling holidays in Costa Calida and Murcia, what’s included?

     

WE HAVE ORGANISED A DOWNHILL MOUNTAIN BIKE DAY  
Tuesday 25th June (NOW FULLY BOOKED) 
SEE BELOW (A GENTLE MOUNTAIN BIKE DAY WITH VIRTUALLY NO PEDDLING) 35 EUROS PER PERSON INCLUDES THE BIKE, SAFETY EQUIPMENT, THE GUIDE, THE TRANSFER TO THE TOP OF THE ESPUÑA, SUPPORT VEHICLE, AND A 4 COURSE LUNCH. It is easy Peasy and anyone who can ride a bike could do it (12 years and upwards) 
See below for more information 
OR PHONE FOR FURTHER DETAILS. 
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 (minimum age of 12) and older groups. 
Try the downhill descent, a great route for an easier ride, if you want it difficult and taxing then we can supply these routes also! 
We do not not suggest to ride from late May to early October because of the extreme heat during that time. 
SEE BELOW FOR FURTHER DETAILS 

FOR OUR BIKING HOLIDAY DEALS WE OFFER…. 

Airport pick up and drop off from Alicante and Murcia airports. (If required) although we always suggest car hire because of our location. 
En suite rooms, choice of double or twin beds, all meals are included (breakfast, packed lunch, bottled water and evening meal, beer and wine. with evening meals. 
We do include the use of lightweight bikes with hydraulic suspension that are great for road use here on the Sierra espuna (but are strong enough for offroad as well) However these bikes are not the conventional long ride type of road bike as we find that serious road cyclists prefer to bring their own bikes. 
Mountain bikes, helmets, repair kits etc. 
Continental style buffet breakfast including juice, cereals, toast, yogurt, pate, fruit, jams, marmalade, honey, choice of tea’s or choice of coffee’s, and various toasted breads. 
Packed lunch 
The evening meal is a 4 course,with a choice of menu. local beer, a soft drink and wine (on the table at start of your meal) is included with your meal.

We have a great selection of beers, wines and spirits that are available from the bar, there is also a 24 hour honesty bar on the terrace. 
Of course just because you are here to cycle does not mean that you cannot experience our other activities, however at certain times of the year we can be busy so we always advise to pre book. 
We do supply routes for road cycling and mountain biking for customers but there is a huge amount of information available on the Internet for riding in the area as well as the tourist information centres locally. 
THESE DEALS ARE AVAILABLE BETWEEN EARLY OCTOBER TO LATE APRIL ONLY as the weather can be extremely hot during other times. 
WE CAN SUPPLY A GUIDE IF NEEDED (at extra cost) HOWEVER WE NO LONGER SUPPLY GUIDES FOR HARDENED MOUNTAIN BIKERS, we now concentrate on groups that want to cycle and experience the beauty of the stunning surroundings that the area has to offer. 

Guides are subject to availability and they tend not to guide between May and October because of the extreme heat.

A mountain bike day with virtually no peddling!! 

Our popular mountain bike days are starting again  
We take you to the top of the Sierra Espuña in a minibus, towing a trailer with the bikes in, we then guide you down the Sierra espuña on wide tracks through the forest trails to the canal at the bottom (25km) stopping at a hostelry for refreshments (If open) on the way, we supply a guide, bikes, helmets, a support vehicle, all transport AND A 4 COURSE LUNCH AT LA MARIPOSA! all this for only 35€ per person, booking is essential and we can only operate this event for 8 to 12 people, this is because there is a lot of organising that goes into one of these events and it takes a minimum of 2 staff/guides/driver etc. 
So if you wish to book a day its always best to book well in advance as this gives us the time to get more added to the group to make it viable. 
Minimum age of 12 (with parent or guardian) Maximum age of 85 1/2… 
WE ARE CLOSED ON WEDNESDAYS (RESTAURANT) so will deduct 5 per person if the tour is on a Wednesday!

We do have mountain bikes for hire with and without suspension from 10 euros per day. These bikes include Trek, Kona, Giant, Decathlon and Sarecen and are perfect for most of the tracks and trails available however if you want to experience the single tracks on the Espuna and are a hardened mountain biker then we assume that you are an experienced rider and will bring your own bikes, we have bike washing facilities and secure storage and workshop facilities at the hotel.
Child seats are available to hire per day and we soon hope to organise child carriages as well.

The mountain bike tracks and trails are probably some of the best in Spain, whether its wide track or single track this area has the lot, there’s no point in talking about it….TRY IT!!
