    A few friends and I are looking at going to Sierra Nevada in September and would love to hear of any recommendations for bike holiday companies. We are general singletrack Trail type riders, not XC but not all mountain types either; enjoying the likes of the welsh trail centers etc.

    Anything good or bad to report?

    You definitely won't go wrong with Ciclo Montana. Check out there website and have a look on You Tube – there's a few vids.

    Run by some great people in a nice location, the accomodation is nice with a pool & decent workshop area overlooking the hills, the food is decent & plentiful, there's a decent amount of Cafe con Leche stops for chilling etc.
    The first ride is a general trail ride to suss out everyone's abilities and then from there the trails are pretty well mathced to your abilities.

    The first year I went, the most I had tackled before was Welsh trail centres along with one trip to Glentress/Innerleithen but I found the riding fine. Sure there were plenty of bits that I couldn't do, but it was great at improving my skill level.

    Just remember to take plenty of tubes or go tubeless, as most of the Spanish vegetation is pretty spikey & unforgiving on tyres.

    They are based in quite a rural location though, so if you are looking to go into a town in the evening for some night-life then you might find it lacking. There is a bar up the road though and to be honest, I am always so tired from a days riding that watching the sunset with a beer and some light bike fettling is all i can manage.

    Ciclo or switchbacks, both great. Bit more climbing with Mark at ciclo, bit more uplift with switchbacks. Switchbacks are in a bigger village (everything is relative) and we ate out there, but Ciclo are pretty much fully catered. riding is 80% the same, but both companies have a few 'specials'.

    I'd recommend either happily. Great riding.

    If you want something a bit different have a look at Sierra Espuna – google Mariposa or look at GEBAS on Everytrail.com. The owner of Orange lives and rides there. Good for us last year.
