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.
