The terrain in Las Alpujarras can be very rocky and wear and tear on bikes in common.

It is ESSENTIAL that you have DUAL PLY tyres. If, like many riders, you ride tubeless then we highly recommend the HuckNorris system as while a tube punctures, often a tubeless tyre will simply puncture instead and in our experience HN prevents this. Single plys result in endless punctures and takes the fun out of the day for both yourself but also for other riders.

If you are only coming for a few days or a long weekend, you may wish to consider hiring a bike from us. We have several different makes and models, specs vary depending on sizes/ models. All are equipped with short stems, wide bars, big brakes and tyres. Please call us for details on 0034660623305.

We recommend a full suspension bike if possible, but a suitably setup hardtail will fare equally well.

We recommend bringing a selection of spares for your bike. We do have a small collection of parts, but they may not be suitable for specific bikes.
