ITINERARY:

Check in to your hotel and enjoy the sights and sounds of the beautiful clifftop town of Ronda. Briefing and bike set up will take place on your first evening to get you ready for your Mini e-bike tour

44km – 722m ascent

The mini e-bike tour starts from Ronda.  You will cycle northwards past vineyards and olive groves to the village of Alcala del Valle to see the impressive baroque church. Continue on to Torre Alhaquime, a small and pretty village on the ancient border of disputed Muslim and Christian areas, with the ruins of the old Nazari tower-fortress still visible. Enjoy lunch in either village before heading down to Setenil de las Bodegas, located in a river valley. Large overhanging limestone cliffs through the lower parts of the village create a unique atmosphere and “cavehouse” dwellings built into the rock overhangs form the basis of many houses, shops and cafes. Overnight on the edge of the village.

35km – 811m ascent

Cycle up to the remains of the Roman hilltop settlement of Acinipo. The town was built to house retired Roman soldiers and thrived in the first century AD. It is worth taking a walk up the hill to visit the remains of the (partially rebuilt) amphitheatre and to catch the views from the high escarpment across to the valley below. From Acinipo, the mini e-bike tour descends past bodegas, vineyards and wheat fields – the two main crops grown here since Roman times – and on though cork oak forests to the village of Montejaque. The tree bark is harvested to provide the corks for ‘000s of bottles of locally and nationally produced wines. Overnight in traditional hotel in the centre of Montejaque village.

33km – 596m ascent

From Montejaque, cycle down out of the mountains into the Guadiaro valley to the Cueva del Gato (Cat Cave), so called because of the shape of the cave in the rockface. This is a local beauty spot with a year-round waterfall which cascades from a cave mouth into a crystal clear pool of water. The final part of the mini e-bike tour see you wind your way though the countryside, taking a gradual climb back up to Ronda in time for tapas and sightseeing on your final night in town.

Check out from your hotel and have a safe trip home or to your next destination.

WILL I BE FIT ENOUGH?

Our mini e-bike self-guided tour is designed for leisure cyclists rather than cycling experts or people looking for large daily mileages. There are hills throughout the region which will need to be tackled but when you are riding our e-bikes you will not need to concern yourself with overall fitness. Take things at your own pace and anyone who is reasonably fit and happy to be on a bike for 4+ hours a day will enjoy this tour.

Just remember that in summer, higher temperatures can make cycling seem harder so we suggest starting soon after 9am and aiming to finish before 2pm.

WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?

Double or twin room with en suite facilities in all locations of the mini e-bike tour.

Ronda hotel is normally 4****. In Setenil you will stay in a traditional hotel just on the edge of the village. Eat in the hotel restaurant or try out the village tapas bars for dinner. In Montejaque, your hotel is right on the central village square. It has its own restaurant or there is also a highly acclaimed restaurant in the village.

Wayne and Heather organized an amazing road and trail experience for my teen son and I! We told them how we ride, and the week-long itinerary was perfect in length, difficulty, and scenery. This was our first time in Spain doing a self-guided tour, and will NOT be our last!! Accommodations were excellent, as expected, for the small towns along our route. Everything from arranging transportation from the airport, finding the perfect bikes for road and trail, to giving us the inside scoop on where to eat and the scenery not to miss, was done without a single problem. We will certainly be back for another ride
We had a fantastic trip on the self guided cycling tour of the White Villages. Some challenging hills and tracks but nothing a regular cyclist couldn’t handle. The hotels and luggage transfer worked smoothly and we enjoyed local hospitality and tapas everywhere. Beautiful area, definitely recommend Hike and Bike for a trip here. Mel & Graham
Wonderful self-guided bike tour! We booked a 4 day self-guided bike tour with Hike and Bike Holidays. Wayne and Heather have created some great well researched bike tours. Our itinerary had to be changed up at the last minute due to heavy rains and washed out trail. The alternate trail may have been the best part of our ride! we got to ride miles of the Via Verde path and Caminos! being able to ride for so far on maintained trail is wonderful! Our tour included accommodation every location that was ideal. we enjoyed every part of our trip and recommend booking with Hike and Bike.
