Words can't describe how great this tour is. Just the drive to the starting point on top of the mountain is enough for a spectacular tour. Once we got started I noticed right away that this is a really nice mountain bike. Shock absorbers even out the bumps and disk brakes provide some security as you head into the curves. I assumed since we started on a mountain top we would ride down hill and that would be it. Instead we continued on through the valley and up and down several more peaks. That's when I came to appreciate the electric assist. I'm in pretty good shape but the e-bike allowed us to cover so much more ground. We stopped for the best views and magically the support van would appear behind us with water snacks and extra gloves and scarves if needed or we could unload some of our gear as the day warmed up. Our guides, Jose and Maria, truly thought of everything, including a short video to help us remember the experience.
Super fun tour one of the best things we did in Granada!! The views were amazing, the bikes were awesome and they trails were empty! It gets cold in the mountains (especially in the morning), I’d recommend bringing a jacket. If you forget to bring a jacket no worries Jose and Maria had extra pants and jackets! Some people said the activity was “easy”, I’m not sure if I would say that. I’m in OK shape and I’ve cycled a lot in my life- it wasn’t hard but be ready to hustle and sweat a little bit. If you’re OK with that then DEF do this, it was so much fun and the guides were great. Even if you aren’t in great shape, you’ll be fine. The guides were good at pacing the group and stopping (“tell me to stop whenever you guys wan to”). Not hard but I wouldn’t say “easy”.
This is a brilliant day out- fantastic scenery, incredible views and route. The e-bike means anyone can do this and there is no suffering along the way - the turbo setting takes care of that !! Jose and Maria are great guides and the van follows all the way down, so you can hop in at any stage!! I couldn’t recommend this highly enough ! Best thing we have done when here in Granada
Fantastic family trip. Our group of 9 had a wonderful time. Maria is excellent as a guide. Bikes are great especially the "turbo" mode. The youngest in our party (11 years) managed the journey with ease so it is not too taxing. A great day to get away from the crowds in Granada. I would recommend this if you want rewarding views and a great family day out.
Amazing! Such a fun way to explore Sierra Nevada. Well organised and friendly tour guides. Bikes and other equipment all in great condition. Yes you need a certain level of fitness but the e-bike will help a lot more than if you were cycling by yourself. The scenery is just incredible. A highlight of the stay in Granada.
