Downhill Bike Ride (Calpe)
Even if you haven’t ridden a bike for decades, the thrill of gliding downhill for about 30 kilometers is an experience to ensure the most memorable day out of your visit to the CostaBlanca Don’t forget your camera! The views are amazing when you’re more than a mile high!
Try something different! Explore Spain’s rugged Costa Blanca Mountains while gliding downhill on a bicycle. A 1-hour journey takes you to the highest mountain of the Costa Blanca – the Aitana Mountain Range. On arrival, pull on your helmet, jump on your bicycle 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 .
Suitable for all ages. You don’t have to be an experienced cyclist. Many guests have not ridden a bike for decades and all ages are welcome. All of the equipment is supplied, but it is best if you wear sensible shoes and leave the flip-flops for the beach and the heels for the nights out. You will be transported uphill by mini bus and then ride downhill all the way. You can cycle as much or as little as you like. The mini bus will always be there for you.
The downhill bike ride runs every weekday Monday to Friday, all year round. During high season there are also rides on Saturdays. You will be picked up at your accommodation about 9.30 am. arriving back at 4.00 pm.
Please wear “Sensible” shoes … not flip-flops or high heels. We provide safety helmets. Any personal belongings can safely be left in the minibus. We stop frequently to ensure everyone is comfortable and to explain places of interest on the next section of the ride. So you’ll have plenty of opportunities to take photographs.
Bring your own packed lunch or enjoy a delicious soup/stew at the Cannibals Restaurant. We carry fresh spring-water available at any time during the bike ride.
