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. In our experience tubeless tyres split on the bead where it meets the rim and not only does Huck help prevents this but it protects your rim at lower tyre pressures. 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 a limited supply of different makes and models, specs vary depending on sizes/ models. All are equipped with short stems, wide bars, big brakes and tyres. Please email or call us for details on 0034660623305.

We recommend a full suspension bike of minimum 140mm travel. And if you missed it DUAL PLY tyres are a must. Also make sure you have got a minimum of 180mm disc rotors to prevent brake fade on the some of the longer descents. Please see the inter-active graphic bike set-up below, click on the circles for more information.

We recommend bringing a selection of spares specific for your bike. But if weight is a problem (some airlines have a max limit of 23kgs), then Bubion has got its own bike shop offering up spares and repairs.
