Discover the real Costa Blanca.

The Down Hill Bike Ride - Explore Spain’s rugged Costa Blanca Mountains while gliding downhill on a bicycle. Hop into your minivan and take a 1-hour journey to the highest mountain of the Costa Blanca - the Aitana Mountain Range. On arrival, pull on your helmet and hit the road! Spin down mountain roads to the villages of Penaguila and Alcoleja, and admire sweeping views over the coast to the Spanish shoreline. In the afternoon, roll into Sella and perhaps enjoy a refreshing drink in the local bar. Then, hop back into the minivan for the journey back to Benidorm.

IMAGINE …. being on a mountain-bike and letting gravity take over as you glide smoothly downhill for 30 kilometers at your own pace in easily manageable sections.

IMAGINE …. just for one day, that you’re leaving the bars, beaches and bustle of the busy coast behind you and being driven more than a mile high through spectacular mountain scenery to the highest point on the Costa Blanca.

IMAGINE …. breathing pure mountain air. The scent of pine, lavender, and orange blossom. The taste of fresh spring-water.

IMAGINE …. a land of discovery with majestic mountains, dramatic gorges, fertile valleys, Moorish castles, quaint villages, abundant wildlife, soaring eagles. YOU MIGHT EVEN SEE A TIGER OR TWO!

IMAGINE …. that reality’s even better when you’re on THE DOWNHILL BIKE RIDE
