This ride takes us in an undulating loop via two of the oldest sites in the area. The route includes a couple of significant climbs (no problem with the e-bikes) as we ride through rural farmland and past woodland, hillside vineyards and acres of olive groves.
We drop down into the valley of La Indiana and then make a 12km steady ascent. At the top, are the Roman ruins of Acinipo, a town built on a high escarpment more than 2,000 years ago to house retired roman soldiers. A few yards behind the rear seats of an ampitheatre is the edge of the escarpment, with amazing views across to the Grazalema mountains.
We then enjoy a great descent into a valley and the white village of Setenil de la Bodegas. This was also a Roman settlement but is likely to have been inhabited for many centuries beforehand. To this day, “cavehouse” dwellings built into the rock form the basis of many houses, shops and cafes. We enjoy a short refreshment stop in one of these cafes before heading back up the hill.

Fantastic fun for all abilities!
we had an amazing time on the e-bikes! we were a group of 5 of different ages and abilities and it worked perfectly! it was surprisingly not too hot and the views were wonderful! would definitely recommend if you're in the area.
Don’t miss this amazing ebike ride!
Amazing views, a fantastic route on very quiet roads and trails. The Ebikes make it all so easy and allow you to take in the beautiful scenery, even the hills only require a little exertion. Excellent guide too!
Great day. Party of 5: 2x 80+ year olds & 3 x in 50s. All had ridden ebikes before. Good bikes, good trail ( led ourselves on programmed Garmin supplied with bikes). Trail included tracks and roads. Picniced at Acinipo. Enjoyed Setenil - festival feel with lots of people enjoying bank holiday. Normally would be plenty of choice for lunch.
We are staying in Los Castanos, Cartajima so olive groves and vines a nice variation from beautiful Sweet Chestnut trees and hiking.
Enjoy. Highly recommend.
