Myself and a group of friends done the ride last week. Was a great day out. Nice to be up in the mountains and have a change of scenery from the benidorm bars. Gary and Jim were very friendly and helpful, and Jims stories and knowledge of the area on the drive up were entertainment in itself. All in all,... More

My partner and I booked the Downhill Bike Ride for the middle of a relaxing week in the sun. We had a fantastic day. A brilliant way to see some lovely scenery and meet other holiday makers. We were the only 'couple' in a group of 4 families but everyone was very friendly. Jim picked us up from an arranged... More

My husband and I first did the ride in 2002 with our 2 now grown up daughters. We loved it that much that we wanted to take our 11 year old son. It didn't disappoint. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day.

My wife and I decided to do this as something a bit different from our usual hectic holiday. We were greeted by two tour guides. Terry who is an absolutely lovely lady and Gary who is very knowledgable. They gave us a safety brief and away we went. We were in a group of around 8 people and there is... More

This activity must be good as I've done it twice, and I'm sure there'll be many more times. From start to finish it is a thoroughly enjoyable experience with spectacular views at every turn - and cycling thirty-odd kilometers downhill is the kind of cycling that absolutely anyone can do. Gary and Andrew, the two guides who were with us... More

Decided to do this, and see some of the countryside. The scenery is amazing, and it's just about all downhill. Had to pedal a few bits but nothing major. If you want to stop, you could stop and take photos whenever you wanted. The views are just awesome, and it's well worth the money

We decided to do this with the kids after other family members had done it. What a great way to see some beautiful countryside and an other side to Benidorm. We all said it was the best thing we did - it was very professional and not difficult - downhill all the way. My kids are 14 and 11 and... More

Me and my girlfriend are always doing bike rides, mainly in the new forest, but I think this maybe the best for the sheer fact of the scenery, and the fact that even though you are in a sizeable group you are not pressured at all to keep up with anyone, or have to worry about holding anyone up.

We've been coming to this area for 20 years and didn't know about this. It's exactly as described apart from about 400 yards in total of slightly uphill. You don't need any level of fitness, you just need to be able to ride a bike. No early nights or lack of beer the night before are needed. I think I... More

Most visitors to Benidorm will probably be unaware of the spectacular scenery only a short 40 minutes drive away. Yet you can view it all and get some enjoyable exercise too, by joining the extremely well organised Downhill Bike Ride. It's well equipped, marvellous fun, and safely lead by Alistair and Gary to name just two of the staff. It... More
