A few things to know before coming out.


For European citizens you MUST HAVE A VALID EUROPEAN HEALTH INSURANCE CARD available from your local post office or on line and SOME MEDICAL INSURANCE that covers you for mountain biking/ extreme sports.

Remember no European Health Card AND insurance policy, no riding!

Get your bike ready


Get your bike down to your favourite local shop for a general service including tightening and truing the wheels (ask the mechanic for a few spare spokes for both wheels). Best to get new tyres and brake pads, and if you are concerned about weight or need to replace anything while here, there are 2 bike shops about 5mins away from the villa with all but the oddest spares you could want.

Suggested spares

  • Spokes
  • Gear hanger
  • Inner tubes
  • Spare chain * especially if it’s Shimano
  • Brake Pads




Normally the months of November to April in southern Spain are warm and sunny but it seems as if the weather is going a bit crazy everywhere these days so make sure you WET AND COLD GEAR PLUS A WOOLY HAT AND THICK JACKET FOR THE EVENINGS just in case.




When you have landed at Malaga airport and picked up your luggage, from T3 Arrivals head straight and turn left up the lifts/escalators to T3 Departures which is UPSTAIRS. The collection point is outside T2 Departures which is about 100ms to the right.
