The quiet tarmac roads, reaching deep into the mountains, are linked by a series of gravel and dirt tracks, making the accents none too technical, giving you access to some mind blowing single track descending, through the stunningly remote mountain scenery and deliciously untouched natural forests of the "Desfilado de los Gaitanes" Nature Park.
El Chorro is an undiscovered Mountain Biking Destination, set in the heart of the Valle de Abdalajis in Andalucia, less than an hours drive from the Malaga's Airport.
The area is ideally suited to the experienced Mountain Biker, who can ride 3 - 5 hours a day. The climbs are testing [2,500ft-5000ft], ranging from 9 - 30 percent and so are the descents. The natural single tracks range from white knuckle rides over rock, with some crazy switchbacks, to loose gravel and dusty goat tracks, safe for all.
Nearly all the mountainbiking routes are remote in places, so you need to carry spares for your bikes [and be able to repair them], lots of water in the summer + snacks and a mobile, with our number in it. Do not underestimate the distance, 20 or 30 miles off road in the El Chorro area can be very challenging but enjoyable. We have plenty of storage for both bikes and bike bags, with indoor and outdoor areas to maintain your bikes.
We have mountain bikes that are available to hire to our guests and can arrange more on request. All bikes come with repair kits & helmets.
Please contact us to find out more.
We've had a selection of MTB routes suggested by our guests, of which we've attach 4 pdfs of just some of the many off road routes available. We feel this brief selection will give you a flavour for the area, once orientated, go and discover more undiscovered tracks, joining them to the ones below.
Our guesthouse is in a prime location perfect for all the mountain biking routes in the El Chorro area.
