Our Moderate Cycling Tour is a collection of Moderate routes for those who want to visit Ronda for a mini cycling holiday or explore the area in greater detail.

The first two days include our Blue Village route and our moderate Grazalema to Ronda route. Those who opt for the three days of cycling will get to experience our Olvera to Ronda route on day three. It is important to note that the order and route selection can be altered.

On your first day of cycling, you will ride the Blue Village route. A route designed to take you through the quiet country roads and small towns of the Valle del Genal, including the famous blue town of Júzcar. Click here for a more detailed description.

Day 2 is another A-B ride from the beautiful town of Grazalema, cycling through cork oak forests and mountain villages as you ride back to Ronda. You will also pass the scenic natural swimming pool at the Cueva del Gato where the cold waters make for a nice break. Click here for a more detailed description.

If you have selected the three-day tour, on day 3 you will ride our moderate classification Olvera to Ronda route. A charming route from the historic town of Olvera, down scenic back roads and through the village Setenil de las Bodegas, officially one of Spain's most beautiful towns. Click here for a more detailed description.

The day before the tour starts a short briefing session can be arranged depending on your accommodation to help prepare you for the following days, but the routes selected for this tour mean you will be in contact with us each day.

We are not a travel agency so we do not combine our bicycle rental with accommodation, this also gives you more flexibility in where you stay on your holiday. You can choose your accommodation before or after you book your experience with us, the accommodation you choose will not affect the price with us unless it is located outside the Ronda area.

Itinerary

Day 0 - Optional Briefing

The day before your first ride you have an optional meet and greet with a briefing, if you have opted for this, we will arrange a suitable location with you depending on your choice of accommodation.

Day 1 - Blue Village

Your first day on the saddle will be one of your easiest but a very interesting route. 

You will be picked up by our support team and set up near the town of Parauta. From here you will ride country roads through the Valle de Genal stopping in the little mountain villages along the way, including the intriguing Blue Village of Júzcar. 

The route is mostly downhill apart from some small sections between villages and a long climb towards the end, however, you are blessed with a long descent into Ronda to finish the route.

34 km / 21 miles - Ascent 668m - Descent 961m

Day 2 - Grazalema to Ronda

The second day in the saddle will start with a pickup and drop off just like your first day, but we will set you up in the beautiful town of Grazalema. 

This route although moderate is slightly more challenging, due to its length and total ascent figures.

Starting in Grazalema, you will cycle out of town and follow the road through the cork oak forests of Grazalema Natural Park until you find yourself in the town of Montejaque, where you have an opportunity to stop for a drink in the plaza of the town.

From here a nice descent will take you to the Cueva del Gato (Cave) and its natural swimming pool.

Your final section of the route will contain some ascent as you climb into Ronda from underneath its iconic bridge the Puente Nuevo.

43 km / 27 miles - Ascent 778m - Descent 995m

Day 3 - Olvera to Ronda

If you have opted for the 3-ride experience, then you will get to enjoy yet another great trip on the saddle, this time riding from the historic town of Olvera back to Ronda, via Setenil de las Bodegas, a very interesting village and officially considered one of the most beautiful in Spain.

This route starts with undulating roads, passing farmland and olive groves imbedded in the landscape, until you reach Setenil de las Bodegas, where we encourage you to stop, take some photos and enjoy a drink before the second section of your ride.

From Setenil you will find a large percentage of your climbing for the day, taking you to the highest part of the route. Once your ascent has finished, the route remains mostly flat until the end. The flat section uses popular cycle tracks through the stunning countryside, passing ranches and oak forests before bringing you home to Ronda.

43 km / 27 miles - Ascent 717m - Descent 537m

Any cycling excursion, easy or challenging, should still be treated the same in regards to preparation. For you all the difficult stuff like maintaining the bicycles and planning the routes have been done, so all you need to do is come prepared with suitable clothing for cycling (padded shorts are not necessary but recommended), hydrated and fuelled (have breakfast and drink water), bring suncream/sunscreen and most importantly expect to have an awesome day.
