Mountain biking in Valencia for a returning client

Mountain biking in Valencia for a returning client

Last week I was delighted to provide some guidied mountain biking in Valencia for a returning client.  Damian from UK completed a skills course with us three years ago, then returned to Valencia last year to do some guided cross country mountain biking. His skills and fitness have further improved so I´m delighted to say that he recently returned for his third trip, this time looking for longer and more challenging rides. We arranged two days in the Sierra de Calderona, a Natural Park within easy reach of Valencia. Day 1 was a long cross country ride on the north [read more]

Mountain Bike Skills Course

Mountain Bike Skills Course

Last weekend I provided a day of guided mountain biking for a client from the Netherlands.  Rob had spent a couple of weeks in Valencia at an academic summer school for environmental technology and initiatives, and wanted to use one of his free days to develop his mountain biking skills. He´d recently bought a new bike back in Holland and wanted to learn some fundamental riding techniques.  Accordingly we designed a day that would combine a guided xc route with a fairly intense mountain bike skills course. After the obligatory morning coffe, during which we discussed the aims and objectives [read more]

I´ve just returned from 3 great days of mountain biking from Valencia with a client from UK.  Damian spent a day with me last year when he booked a beginners skills course and combined this with a city break in Valencia.  He enjoyed his time in Valencia so much that he decided to make a return visit and combine his visit with 3 days of bespoke guided mountain biking.  His specific requirements were essentially 3 full days of guided mountain biking that included a strong element of off-road riding skills training.  Our philosophy of never mixing groups allows us to [read more]

Winter Mountain Biking in Valencia

Winter Mountain Biking in Valencia

This autumn has been unusually warm even by Valencian standards, with November midday temperatures reaching 30 degrees C on many days.  Therefore the sudden drop to around 12 degrees was somewhat of a shock this weekend.  However, the day dawned bright with only light cloud and a good deal of sunshine. My clients for the day were a couple of cyclists from the south coast of England.  One of them owned a holiday property in the area and was keen to enjoy a day of guided mountain biking with his friend who was visiting with family.  We soon solved the [read more]

Day one began with a gentle ride through orange groves and olive groves, all on easy dirt trails, allowing them to become familiar with the Trek mountain bikes [read more]
