- 'La Penita' is a ***Hotel in the heart of Alhaurin El Grande, with
fantastic views over the valley. All rooms are en-suite with air-conditioning,
TV and fridge/cooking facilities. There is a handy supermarket in the
basement and a swimming pool (open June to September) in the gardens

- free collection and return from Malaga airport (just 30 minutes away).
- 6/7 guided riding days with experienced guides with intimate knowledge
of all routes.
- Secure storage for all bikes. All parts and accessories available
at discounted prices from local shop.
All rides are graded from very easy (firetrails) to very
singletrack) with plenty of variety for your standard of fitness and experience.
We start the morning with breakfast and briefing, going through the days'
ride and giving the options to everyone. Once everybody is happy, we head
off into the country for an easy, medium or hard ride, depending on your
abilities. (If you are a beginner, we usually start the first day with
a free training and safety session to get your riding skills off the ground.)
We normally ride for three to four hours, usually finishing
around 3pm with
Lunch, or a drink in one of the many local Tavernas, or back at base.
A couple of days a week, we pack our bikes and gear into MBE's Comfy van
and drive to the Lake District, or one of the National Parks nearby.
Most afternoons are all yours to enjoy.
Carry on riding, sit by the pool, or whatever takes your fancy. (Wednesday
is generally a rest day!)
The south coast of Spain boasts 320 days of sunshine per year, the highest
in Europe, so if it aint sunny here it aint sunny anywhere!!!. There are
around 20 restaurants in Alhaurin which cost from as little as 8 Euros
per head including wine, as well as many clubs, bars and tapas/wine bars.
