MOUNTAIN BIKING NEAR MADRID

Explore Spain’s Sierra de Guadarrama mountains on a guided weekend of mountain biking. You’ll ride endless singletrack through forests, along scenic ridgelines and stop in at the beautiful historic cities of Segovia and El Escorial on the way.

WEEKEND PACKAGE

The beautiful Sierra de Guadarrama mountains in Central Spain were recently designated a National Park. The area is one of Spain’s most important biological preserves, providing a home for deer, boar, wolves, eagles and vultures. The mountains are beautiful, with granitic peaks rising 1000m above the surrounding plains.

The nearby city of Segovia hosts some of some of Spain’s most important monuments like the stunning 11th Century fortress or the 1st Century Roman aqueduct.

El Escorial is a famous monastery from the 16th Century. From the mountains you can look down on the monastery and see within its massive walls.

Arrival, transfer to Cercedilla

Your host will meet you at the airport in Madrid and drive you to the rural town of Cercedilla. There you’ll check into your accommodation and enjoy a traditional Spanish “picoteo” light dinner. Your guides will brief you on the weekend plan before bed.

1 hour driving

Cercedilla to Segovia

After breakfast you’ll start pedaling straight from your guesthouse and into the hills. Climb a gravel road through some of the Sierra de Guadarrama’s best-preserved forests to Fuenfria Pass (1793m). Take in the views, then cut loose on a network of singletrack that feels truly backcountry.

You’ll arrive in Segovia in time for a bocadillo or tapas lunch, then explore the picturesque town by bike in the afternoon. Ride back to Cercedilla by train.
