Join us on our Pyrenees & Beyond ride in beautiful Spain and pedal trails that crisscross over million-year-old sea beds, through abandoned middle-age villages, across wine regions, and along rocky foothills, before meeting the rugged Pyrenees to experience heli-access mountain biking.

 

The terrain offers up the perfect ingredients for an awe-inspiring mountain bike trip. Heli-drops, shuttle runs and technical singletrack riding in the heart of the Pyrenees is topped off with mouth-watering Spanish cuisine ('tapas' included), local wine pairings and fascinating, rich cultural experiences. Descend 4,000 vertical metres in one day, pedal by 1,000-year-old castles and take countless photographs - the memories you'll create on this ride with not be forgotten.

 

A picture is worth a thousand words, so without further ado, scroll through to get a taste of the incredible mountain biking, stunning scenery and fascinating history Spain has to offer.
