Spain guiding recommendations please
3 weeks of constant rain in Glasgow has made me decide to book a short break (5 days) in Spain at the end of the month. Unfortunately, I know very little about the riding there. Can anyone suggest a descent guiding organisation that would cater for 2 riders? Just looking at flights it would seem someone near Alicante is the best option, but I'm happy to hire a car if we need to travel. ThanksPosted 8 years agoalan-sierracyclingSubscriber
We are based on the beach, just 20 mins from Malaga airport. We´ll have you riding an hour after landing if you catch an early flight, perfect for a long weekend.Posted 8 years ago
Winter weather is always better here on the Southern Spanish coast. Oh,and half our staff are from Glasgow.

Been out with Switchbacks 6 times and love it, would recommend them if you prefer descending rather than lots of climbing (Switchbacks offer lots of uplifts).
Havent been out with Cyclo Montana but both companies ride the same trails, know others who have and rate them (although I understand they do a fair bit more climbing than switchbacks?)
Trails around Bubion, Cappilara, etc. are bloody brilliant.Posted 8 years agoYetimanMember
I don't know about the Alicante region but if you can get to Malaga or Granada I'd suggest Ciclo Montana. Been using them for years and still keep going back for more.Posted 8 years ago
As mentioned by Glenn you will have to earn most of your descents with Ciclo but they do mix it up with some uplifts to save time and try to maximize the fun parts.doug_basqueMTB.comSubscriber
Hi Mogrim, you're quite correct, did you get the recent storm with you?
I've just spotted this thread!! I wouldn't take customers at this time of year, we closed in the middle of October and will open again in March! I love riding when it's stormy but I wouldn't ask people to pay for that privilege 😉
The storms are great at the moment, I put some photos of a big storm hitting San Sebastian on my site Stormy San SebastianPosted 8 years ago
