Explore Spain’s rugged Costa Blanca Mountains while gliding downhill on a bicycle. Hop into your minivan and take a 1-hour journey to the highest mountain of the Costa Blanca - the Aitana Mountain Range. On arrival, pull on your helmet and hit the road! Spin down mountain roads to the villages of Penaguila and Alcoleja, and admire sweeping views over the coast to the Spanish shoreline. In the afternoon, roll into Sella and perhaps enjoy a refreshing drink in the local bar. Then, hop back into the minivan for the journey back to Benidorm.
Suitable for all ages. You don't have to be an experienced cyclist. Many guests have not ridden a bike for decades and all ages are welcome. All of the equipment is supplied, but it is best if you wear sensible shoes and leave the flip-flops for the beach and the heels for the nights out. You will be transported uphill by mini bus and then ride downhill all the way. You can cycle as much or as little as you like. The mini bus will always be there for you.
