Bike: Grazalema
The scenery on this route is absolutely breath-taking we start with by riding up the Ribiera Valley towards Grazalema, the route then takes us through a beautiful high mountain plateau with limestone outcrops lining the road for several kilometres before we stop for refreshments in a ‘pueblo blanco’ (white village). After our pit stop we head back to Montecorto riding through one of my favourite sections of road ‘the cork tree forest’ before descending for 7km back to base.
Ride distance 51k – 80k Elevation gain 1200-1500m

Group Stretch Session or foam roller and a dip in the plunge pool.

Day 3: Monday

Bike: Olvera
Today we head north of Montecorto where the landscape is more rolling passing groves of olive trees we climb out of a valley and as we crest the hilltop stunning views of Olvera open out before us. After riding through Olvera we head to Setenil de la Bodegas which was once a thriving economic centre on the ‘Travellers route’ between Sevilla and Ronda this picturesque white village is now famous for its cave houses and olive oil. Here we stop for lunch at, in my opinion, one of the best tapa’s bars in this area which is set beneath the overhanging rock face inside a cave. At this point we have ridden 44k with almost 1000m of elevation from here you can choose from either a 20k, 30k or 40k ride back to Montecorto.
Ride distance 64k-84k Elevation gain 1400-1750m

After this climb we descend into Grazalema, another stunningly beautiful ‘pueblo blanco’ (white village) for well deserved ‘Coffee & Cakes’.
