MTB in Costa Blanca

The terrain on the Costa Blanca is very diverse and so are the styles of riding.The close area around Moraira (say the triangle from Denia to Calpe on the coast towards Jalón more inland) is especially good for cross country riding. Rides are mostly on natural trails (i.e. not custom made for mountain biking). Each ride involves climbing but climbs are never too long or too steep, although there is the odd rock garden which makes descending fun / exciting. Trails are usually dry or dusty with a hard packed, rocky or gravel base. Anyone with a reasonable fitness will be able to do day rides up to around 50 kilometres which allows for having fun on the bike and at the same time get to know the area in a way you can never parallel by driving a car.

Riders that prefer a more all mountain or even an enduro style of riding will also not be disappointed. Not too far away from Moraira (20 up to max. 45 minutes drive by car) are hills that offer longer climbs and consequently longer downhill single tracks. For example the Sierra de Bernia and Sierra de Carrascal mountain ranges are the perfect terrain for anyone who wants to challenge him- or herself more.
