Cycling in Andalusia

Cycling in Andalusia; sporty cyclists can eat their hearts out here. The surrounding area of Finca Las Nuevas offers plenty of possibilities for both racing cyclists and mountain bikers to enjoy wonderful tours. Our home is a perfect operating base for mountain bikers.

There are sandy paths in all wind directions, where you can cycle peacefully. For example, you can cycle on a beautiful road to El Torcal. Real die-hards might even venture up a steep climb to enjoy the unique landscape with beautiful limestone formations.

Flat, paved routes in the Guadalhorce valley

If you prefer paved, flat roads, the Guadalhorce valley is perfect for you. The Guadalhorce is a river that eventually flows into the Mediterranean at Málaga. The valley named after this river starts to the west of Málaga and extends to the Ardales lakes. This region is characterized by agriculture. You will therefore observe many lime- and orange trees along the way.

In addition, there are also many typical Andalusian white mountain villages, such as Álora, Cártama, Pizarra, and Alhaurin el Grande. They offer plenty of possibilities to get off your bike and experience Spanish life. These villages still breathe an authentic Spanish atmosphere. It will be crowded in the morning, but from approx. 2 pm the siesta starts and sometimes you will cycle all alone through the village. Around 7 pm the village comes back to life again.

High gear ratio

As mentioned earlier, if you really want to conquer a mountain, the route to EL Torcal is perfect for you. Don’t underestimate the road from Cártama to Finca Las Nuevas. This road is the scene for the annual cycle tour of the local cycling association. Along the way, you will definitely notice the chalked names on the road.

If you cycle towards the Ardales lakes, you follow the route of the Vuelta 2019. This beautiful mountain road passes through a beautiful area. You might even reduce your speed to enjoy the beautiful nature.

We understand that it is not so easy to bring your own bike. If you inform us in advance, we can arrange a bike for you.

Cycling with the entire family

Sometimes it is also fun to cycle with the entire family. Are you looking for a route that is fun for both you and your children? Cycling in Málaga can be very nice. You can book an organized cycling trip in the city centre, but you can also easily rent a bike in the city yourself and cycle along the beach. Most of the time you cycle directly along the beach, on a cycle path. However, sometimes you have to walk a little. Are you getting tired? No problem! Along the way, you will find lots of terraces and restaurants and the sea is nearby for a refreshing dive!

At the weekends it is always very crowded in Málaga. Therefore you’d better save the bike ride for a weekday.
