Bikes: size, model, servicing

For most of our tours we will give you our Cannondale mountainbike 29” (size S is 27,5″) equipped with Shimano Deore 20 speed, hydro disc-brakes and Rockshock front suspension.

The bike is provided with a bottle holder and a pannier rack, so you can bring your own pannier, or rent a pannier with us. We provide a kilometer counter, lock and a repair kit with the bike. On request you can rent also a helmet and water bottle.

We will always ask you for your height so as to provide you the appropriate bike. We have various sizes from Small to X-Large.

Our bicycles are thoroughly serviced by a professional bike shop before rental. Normally the bike is delivered at the start point of the route, or in the first accommodation, or can be collected at the nearest bike shop. You can bring your own saddle or Shimano pedals if you like, tell us beforehand so we will deliver the bike already without the pedals and give you the right tool.

You can also rent an electric bike, we use different bikes, it can be FOCUS full supensión for example, or Bergamont with only front suspension.

What is the best time to travel to Andalusia?

For both hiking and cycling the best time is spring (March to June) and autumn (September to November), although winter can also be very nice if you come prepared (it gets dark around 18 and nights can be cold in the mountains, but generally nice sunny weather during the day).

Andalusia is Spain’s warmest region. It has average yearly temperatures of 17ºC, around 600mm of rainfall and some 3,000 hours of sunshine, with long, hot summers and short, mild winters. But of course it depends at what altitude you are cycling or hiking…Sierra Nevada for example has a truly high-mountain climate.
