This was truly amazing. The electric mountain bikes were new, and in really good condition. The countryside is spectacular, and the guides were kind, helpful and made it a great experience. We were picked up in central granada and driven for 45 mins up the mountains in a van. From our starting point in the mountain we cruised along mostly off-road wide paths towards granada, there was a fair amount of uphill. which is where the electric part of the bike really helps. highly recomended.
My daughter ended up taking my place on this tour due to illness. Here’s what she had to say: My brother (17) and I (28) had a fantastic time doing the e-bike tour. It’s a wonderful way to spend half a day in Granada and do something a bit different. The views are spectacular, the pace just right and we had an excellent guide in Julian. While Julian rode with us, the owner followed us in a van and both men were exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable and professional. You can tell they love what they do! I expected it to be freezing (we went in December) but it was actually very pleasant with the sun out. Great bikes - I felt very safe. Helmet and gloves were also provided. Highly recommended!
By far, this was one of the best highlights of our 2 week trip in Spain! My wife and I are both avid cyclists, so this excursion into the Sierra Nevada park sounded fantastic to begin with. And we were also very curious about e-bikes, e-MTB to be more specific, so more on that below!
We met our guides promptly in the morning in a spot that is very close by to the place we are staying. We hopped into the van and it was a good 45 minute drive up into the Sierra Nevada mountains with fantastic scenery all around us. Once at the top, we begin the journey on our e-MTBs. It was our first time trying out an MTB with an e-assist system, and let me tell you, IT WAS CRAZY FUN!
The 4-hour journey was a blast and you can take it as easy as you want at a leisurely pace that I think almost everyone can do and let the e-assist do its magic. Basically, as long as you can pedal on a bike, you are good for this trip. Or, if you are already an experienced cyclist, you can have a LOT of fun and blast off the trails and enjoy some beautiful downhill moments through pine forests and fantastic vistas. At every moment, you are surrounded by beautiful scenery and we also learned more about the surrounding villages and flora and fauna from our guide Maria who was equally fantastic. The vistas were, how do I say it... muy bonito!
If we ever get the chance to do this tour again, we would do it in a heartbeat, and also go on some of the other tours too! I'd say that this was easily one of the most memorable parts of our trip and was a wonderful start to our 2-week cycling journey. Highly recommended!
Fantastic way to spend 4 hours, scenery was fantastic. Maria our guide was lovely and informative as was here colleague who met us at certain spots to provide refreshments. The electric bikes were amazing, making the cycling easy and enjoyable, it still felt like a challenge, especially to a sport phobic person like me!. Would definitely recommend this adventure! Thank you.
This is truly an experience of a lifetime! If you can ride a bike, then this is an experience you don't want to miss in Granada!
We started our day by meeting at the pick up point and taking about a 30 min car ride up in to the mountains. We got our bikes, safety gear and an orientation on how to operate the eBikes. We had a van that followed us on most of our tour in case anyone of us did not want to continue. They even brought water and bananas for us! The guides were very friendly, we did everything at our own pace, and safety minded. They also know the terrain quite well! They would stop and tell us the important sites, history as well as point out wild herbs growing.
The tour starts in the mountains with fairly wide gravel trails, then paved roads as you get closer to the city. Once you enter the city, you are on cobble stone sidewalk with views of the Alhambra! Finally, a small 10 minute ride in the city and we ended up back at our pick up point in the morning.
The views were just breath taking, we stopped several times just to take it all in! We were in Spain for 2.5 weeks, and this is by far the best thing we did! We all would do this again in a heart beat if given the chance!
