This is a classic cross-country ride through isolated hillside landscapes to Andalucia’s "lake district" and finally to the famous El Chorro gorge. If you enjoy being out in the wilds and covering some cross country miles with amazing vistas throughout, then this ride is for you.
A 20 min drive from Ronda takes us up to a high point where we begin our ride. We use a mixture of tracks and eventually quiet roads, cycling through pine forest and out into open countryside, with mountain ranges all around. We enjoy a fun, long descent to the town of Ardales before heading into strange, rocky landscapes around a network of lakes and dams. We then head to a Mirador overlooking the lakes.
We finish near the dramatic gorge of El Chorro, a narrow river channel which cuts between two 150m tall limestone cliffs, with views of the recently restored Caminito del Rey walkway, perched high up on the inside of the cliff.

The Art of MTB Touring with Hike & Bike
You have high expectations when you do a guided tour for two, but this one exceeded them. The reasons for that are that 1) there was a perfect match between our fitness and MTB experience with the selected route 2) the service from Hike & Bike was excellent from start to finish 3) the route itself was superb - beautiful, scenic and varied 4) the price-value, considering that it included pick-up, drop-off, the bike rental and four hours of guided riding, was very good. I would add that both Wayne & Heather are friendly, competent entrepreneurs who know what they are doing and want to meet your needs.
Heather and Wayne are super friendly, we loved the tour, the eMTB were in top-condition… we totally recommend a tour with Hike + Bike… Christian and Steffi , Oktober 2022
Wir haben spontan einen Ausflug von Ronda zum "el Chorro" unternommen. Die Koordination war unkompliziert. Heather und Wayne erwarteten uns pünktlich. Nach einer kurzen Begrüssung ging es los. Wayne fuhr mit uns die Strecke ab. Am Ziel wurden wir von Heather mit dem Auto erwartet und zurück gefahren.
Die Fahrt war wunderbar. Es ist bemerkenswert, mit welcher Hingabe einem die beiden betreuen. Die Routen sind wunderschön und man merkt, mit wie viel Sorgfalt sie geplant werden.
Die Bikes sind in sehr gutem Zustand. Die Gastgeber sind extrem angenehme und nette Begleiter.
Das tolle Erlebnis hat uns dazu verleitet, am Folgetag eine e-Bike-Tour mit GPS-Navigation zu buchen - sie war ebenso perfekt.
