“Bespoke Mountain Biking in Amazing Countryside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I can highly recommend David as he's a very experienced and intuitive instructor who gave me the right balance of instruction and freedom to extend myself in a safe and fun way. This resulted an awesome day mountain biking in some spectacular country.
I gave him my brief via email and he tailored a ride that delivered on my expectations.
He gave excellent value for money and provided very well maintained equipment.

“'Hills & Skills' :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We went on two very enjoyable guided bike rides with Dave who provided a very professional service and well maintained Trek bikes. A few ‘hills and skills’ top tips were provided to ensure we were riding safely and efficiently. It’s a popular area for mountain biking with plenty of off road trails that climb into the mountains and drop into villages where you can stop for a morning coffee.

Dave also provided us with a walking route up Alt Benicadell – the views were tremendous.

We visited at the end of November and each day was sunny with temperatures around 20 so ideal for an active break away from the wet and windy weather at home.

Thanks Dave for the photos and good luck with your business in future.

“Great bespoke MTB ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Thoroughly enjoyed the trail ride that David organised for some friends and myself. It was designed perfectly for our riding ability and proved to be really fun. With stop offs for coffee and lunch, the whole day was really well planned. Plus, we got to take in some great views of the Valencian countryside. I would certainly recommend one of David's trips for anyone interested in cycling whatever their level.

“Fantastic Day Out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

My husband and I travelled from Madrid for the weekend to partake in a bespoke mountain biking tour with Dave Warrington from Nature trail. It was one of the best days out we've had in a such a long time! I had never biked before and my husband is a keen biker so it was up to Dave to come up with an itinerary that would suit us both. Quite a tall order but he prepared the day just right. It was a perfect mix of skills training and off road cycling experience through what can only be described as some of the most beautiful scenery you can imagine. Think lush green mountains, farm lands, rivers, orange groves, amazing views and hundreds of km of rocky mountain terrain. We stayed in Xatvia at a small hotel recommended by Dave and it was perfect for our short stay. Its a fantastic old Valencian town, with a rich history and lots of good places to eat and drink. We will definitely be returning for some more cycling next year and probably the year after too. Can't recommend it enough!

“MTB weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

During our holiday in Valencia we booked a weekend consisting of 2 nights at one of his local partners (la casona de ferrona) and a one day guided tour. The bed & breakfast was superb with very friendly people and everything was as clean as can be.
It was our first time mountainbiking and it was a great experience! David (the tour guide) first wanted to have a talk with us the day before to see what we were looking for, and I think he perfectly delivered what we asked for. The bikes are in perfect shape and there was just a very safe atmosphere all around. We did about 40km if i remember correctly, which took us about 8h. David really cares about your experience and when you hire him theres no rush, if you ever want to have a break or take a picture or anything, all you have to do is say so.
He took us to some beautiful places and there were some very nice tracks. I felt like he really knew the area well and knew a lot of shortcuts or extensions to the route.

We had a great weekend in La Drova and we have David and the people of La cassona de ferrando to thank for that!

It was a pleasure to provide the weekend for you. You both understood the "tailor-made" nature of our services and I´m delighted that you used that to your benefit. As for the biking, you were great clients, listened carefully, kept yourselves safe and did fantastically well. Many thanks for leaving the review. Best wishes, David.
