- Recommendations for mountain biking and beach holidays please
An old thread appeared the other day about FinalePosted 8 years ago
A couple of friends my wife and my 2 year old are trying to sort a holiday where 2 of us can ride some great trails and the non riders can laze on the beach with my nipper and enjoy good food (the girls are foodies). I've had a look and the only place I can find that ticks all boxes is Finale Ligure Italy. So has any one got any other suggestions or recommendations or has any one been to Finale? If so what was it like? All help received gratefully!Posted 8 years ago
We looked at Finale but ended up going to cantabria, great beaches and Picos 45 mins awayPosted 8 years agoMackemMember
I live in the Basque country, the beaches are far nicer than anything darn south, the food is regarded as the best in Spain, there's lots of nice mountains too. Lad who posts on here Doug, has a guiding/holiday company called Basquemtb, based in Hondarribia on the Spain/France border, its a lovely town with mountains and beach on your doorstep. San Sebastian isnt far away if you want a bit of culture and more beaches.

Hi guys. Thanks for the link Mark! This is a lovely part of the world if you like to ride and / or hit the beach. You can do this in the morning:
and this in the afternoon:
Not wanting to plug the area too much but today I did a route that went from just below the peak here right the way down the ridge to the right and ended up about sea level. With a couple of climbs we did almost 2000m's of descending.
I hope that's not too much of a advert. A friends guides for Sierra Cycling and I'm sure they're fantastic too.Posted 8 years agonasherMember

I was out there and it has 1800m (ish) Troodos Mountains which are 1 hr away from beach. Fantastic singletrack. You can pick some lovely quieter areas to stay in too (as opposed to the clubbing crowd, although that might be your thing?). I'm afraid I cannot remember the names of the guiding companies but another option worth looking at.Posted 8 years agoalan-sierracyclingMember

We are the only biking company based on the coast in Southern Spain, safe enclosed garden, pool and on the beach.
Great singletrack rides during the day & lively night life with excellent restaurants on the coast at night.
Lots of checkable recommendations from families on our guestbook http://www.sierracycling.com.TreksterSubscriber
I did the Costas hol package deal(Globespan)with the SO and then had 2 days biking with Alan @ sierra cycling. Easy enough to get to Fuengerola(sp)by train, runs from the airport all the way along the Costas so you can stay anywhere. Big hotel across the road from Alan looks good and he reckomended it if I go again, forget the name tho.Posted 8 years ago
