Ride 1: Greatest hits - Vol. I

This ride is a combination of the best elements cross country mountain biking offers: single track, some rocky parts, drops and also small roads and gravel paths to get some miles in.

This ride has a great collection of trails for those who are new to the area. The ride starts from Moraira and takes you almost immediately off road. For about 15K we cruise flowy trails through forests and fields, before descending into the dry Gorgos river bed.

Here we cross the valley in the direction of the foot of Montgó mountain, where we will follow a trail to the towns of Jesus Pobre and Gata de Gorgos. In this village we usually break for coffee at the church square to recharge ourselves for the final third of this ride. We drop again into the river bed and from there we climb back to Benitachell and Moraira.

  • Distance: 45 Km
  • Duration: around 3-4 hrs (depending on breaks)
  • Climbing: 750 m
  • Technical level: Intermediate (Novice+ is also possible)

Ride 2: The smell of gravel in the morning

The route starts and finishes in Benissa and is one of our personal favourites. This tour is a great way to get a good impression of this pretty corner of Spain. From Benissa we pass through the vineyards of the 'Vall de Pop' to the villages of Lliber, Jalón and Parcent.

This tour takes us over small country roads, gravel roads and some rocky sections. Heading back we cycle at the foot of the 'Coll de Rates' with stunning views of the valley and we check out a nice single track.

Usually we break at the Velosol cycling bar in Jalón for coffee (and maybe some pancakes...). Climbs on this ride are never long, but as the route profile constantly changes, a pretty good fitness is required. 

  • Distance: 40 K
  • Duration: around 4 hrs (depending on breaks)
  • Climbing: 750 m
  • Technical level: Intermediate (Novice+ is also possible)

Ride 3: What doesn't kill you makes you stronger!

A combination of asphalted farm roads, forest paths, gravel roads, rocky trails and even a long downhill trail; this route has it all. And it's only a stone's throw off the coast!

We leave Benissa by descending into a dry river bed followed by the only piece of flat road during the entire ride. Next we ride single tracks around Calpe, go up and down the slopes of Sierra Olta several times, before heading back to Benissa. It is a wonderfully scenic mountain bike tour with a lot of altitude and varied surface. It is the combination of short, steep climbs and nice descents which makes this into an interesting but also pretty hard ride, so a good physical condition is required!

  • Distance: 40-45 K
  • Duration: around 3-5 hrs (depending on breaks and fitness)
  • Climbing: 1.100 m
  • Technical level: Intermediate or Intermediate+

Ride 4: A Route With a View

Riding on the edge between land and sea is why we call this ´a route with a view.´ We can either start the ride from Moraira or if we want to limit the climbing metres, start in Benitachell. From there we´ll ride up Cumbre del Sol (or officially: Puig Llorença). We continue the tour right on top of the cliffs alongside the Mediterranean before dropping down to Cala Granadella, which is considered to be one of Spain's most beautiful bays. From there some more climbing while we head to Jávea. From Jávea we roll back to Moraira.

  • Distance: 35 or 45 K (depending on start location)
  • Duration: around 3-5 hrs
  • Climbing: +1.000 m
  • Technical level: Intermediate (Novice+ is also possible)

Ride 5: To the Castle!

El Castell de Guadalest (usually known as Guadalest) is a village tucked away in the mountains behind Altea. It is one of the touristic highlights of the Costa Blanca. Next to the town lies a reservoir from which the Guadalest river flows towards the sea. The river is usually (fairly) dry and offers a natural path for mountain bikers.

The ride starts at sea level and goes all the way up to Guadalest (around 600 m). The route is almost all off road and takes you through beautiful scenery.

  • Distance: 45 - 55 K
  • Duration: around 5 hrs
  • Climbing: 1.000 m
  • Technical level: Novice+
