My mate Eric always talked about how great the riding would be around the Alpujarras in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Southern Spain. We arranged to me him and Ana there while they were driving across europe, took bikes, and went out exploring. Wow, it really is stunning country, massive climbs in fireroads, and some really technical, loose descents.
Here’ a video from Switchbacks who operate MTB holidays in Bubión and Malaga. We were staying in Bubión, but Switchbacks weren’t around. I found the trails using Strava and rode some of the regular routes they use. They were brilliant.
