Five stars is not enough. Don’t hesitate to book a cycling trip through them. I’ll start with the agency and then review the bikes and the riding. Ana is simply a perfect host. From first emails to excellent communication throughout our journey she was punctual thorough and flexible. Can’t say enough about the level of her customer service. This was my first time riding an electric bike and my how they have changed. The combination of age and climbing throughout the trip forced my hand. The bikes delivered. I climbed manually when I wanted and got an assist when I needed it. The bikes were in perfect condition and handled surprisingly well. I wish my chain at home was as clean as this one was. The cycling is challenging and gorgeous. The hill towns are beautiful and there were wildflowers everywhere this May. The routes we chose from those provided, yes we had options, could not have been better. And grazalena itself, what a gem. Be aware that dinner starts late in Spain, so do not slack on lunch. Food throughout was solid, sometimes great and never bad. Hotels are adequate, this is not four star country. In sum, If you’re thinking of a self guided bike trip in Europe I can’t imagine a better choice.

Hi Jules, Thank you for your amazing review! Everything started with you giving us the chance to put this cycling tour through Andalucia together for you, and we are very grateful to you for that, and incredibly happy that you had such a good time whilst riding bikes here. As you said yourself, the e-bikes have changed significantly over the years, and we are very happy that you enjoyed riding our Orbea Gain rental e-bikes through the Sierra de Grazalema and beyond. We try to take real good care of the bikes, to make sure that they run as smooth as possible, and it has been great to see how you appreciate these details. It makes the efforts that we put in so much more rewarding. We are delighted that you enjoyed the routes, nature, villages and food, and it has been a true pleasure meeting you and getting the opportunity to organise this cycling trip for you. Many thanks, or as we say here: muchísimas gracias, to both of you for your confidence in us, your kindness and your beautiful words, and if you are ever in or around Grazalema again, please don´t hesitate to come say “hi”. All the best for now and thanks again, Ana Grazalema Cycling Adventures

Me and my friends rented bikes from Grazalema Cycling Adventures last week and had an amazing day. We used mountain bikes to go off-road and followed a route suggested by Ana using directions and a GPS that had perfect instructions. Communication with Ana was very easy from the beginning, and the bikes were ready to go from the shop when we arrived. I'd highly recommend getting bikes from here, and I'd especially suggest going off-road as the views were really amazing. Thanks Ana!

Hi Rebecca, Thank you very much for your review! It was great to meet you all and I am really happy that you had such a good day out on the bike. We are always a bit nervous when asked to recommend a type of bike and/or route, because we want to do it right, of course, so it is very nice to know that we were able to help you make the right choice and that you enjoyed the mountain biking here in the Sierra de Grazalema. We hope you can look back on a great holiday overall and thank you for making us a little part of it. Our best wishes to all four of you and thanks again, Ana

Grazalema Cycling Adventures is an incredibly smart, cool, knowledgeable cycling outfitter in a beautiful, undiscovered Spanish village. And there are so many things to love about that. It’s owned by two professional guides. One is a competitive cyclist (Ana). The other (Juan) grew up in Grazalema. They are incredibly dedicated, almost obsessively detail oriented and do everything possible to ensure you have a fantastic experience, whether it’s planning and routing an 10-day cycle tour of Andalusia (like they did for us), doing a guided ride or just renting a bike for the day. Although Grazalema is in the center of a spectacular national park popular for hiking, it has not been discovered by anyone but Spanish cyclists, despite the fact there are two amazing, jaw dropping climbs—Puerto de Las Palomas and Puerto de El Boyar. Our trip was a White Villages tour they customized for us from Antequera through Ardales, Ronda, Cartijima, Grazalema and Arcos de la Frontera. The routes were flawlessly accurate, uniformly spectacular (having ridden in the Dolomites, Girona, Tuscany and Provence, we know spectacular when we see it) and were marked with café, lunch and water stops. 99% of the miles were on well-conditioned, secondary roads with minimal traffic. And although our trip was technically self-guided, Juan and Ana managed luggage, accommodations and random requests perfectly every step of the way. Grazalema is a fantastic village (just enough going on to be interesting) so we used that as a base to do loops. They arranged for massages after one of the climbs and swung by with the van for an assist at the end of one particularly tough day. These are the perks you only expect from those wildly expensive Backroads tours, but Ana and Juan can’t bring themselves to say “no”. The bikes were new, perfectly tuned Orbea Orcas. Apologies if this is all too much information because you just want to rent a couple of e-bikes. But don’t worry, Juan and Ana can hook you up with those too.

Hi Joe, Thank you so much for this amazing review you wrote about us. We really appreciate it that you dedicated your time and energy to letting us and other possible customers know what a great time you had cycling through the Andalucian landscape, from one small village to the next. Your words have made us smile from ear to ear, and we are convinced that anyone who reads your review will get excited to come cycling here as well, so we can´t thank you enough, really, for everything that will come from this in the future. But above all, we want to thank both of you for the confidence you gave us by letting us organize this trip for you. We are stoked that is has been such an amazing experience for you, and the same is true for us. We were given the chance to put a cycling tour together that really suited your wishes, came past our favorite stretches of roads and impressive sceneries here in the Sierra de Grazalema and the perfectionist in me also got the opportunity to work on details like the booklets with route information, arranging massages, etc. We hope this tour will be the first of many, in several shapes and sizes, that we will be organizing, but we will always remember this one. We hope you will too, in the positive sense of course, and that it will be something you can look back on with very fond memories. Have a great time (re)discovering other parts of Spain and if you are ever in the area again; you know where to find us, as you have almost become locals by now. 😉 Like we say here: muchísimas gracias (many, many thanks) and all the best to both of you! Juan & Ana

I booked my two guided cycling tours a year in advance directly with Ana, her written English is superb and she clearly pointed out all of the cycling options to me via email and genuinely helped to guide me towards the most suitable cycling routes given my ability and experience. I am not a regular cyclist back home in the UK but I do enjoy cycling when I have the opportunity to go so it was something I was really looking forward to. My first trip out was with Juan who I met in the store in Grazalema. On first impressions I could see that they had a good range of very modern Road and Mountain bikes available along with lots of accessories and equipment if you wanted to purchase anything. Juan had fully prepared in advance my electric assisted mountain bike and gave a good explanation of how to maximise the usage of the bike before we left their store. The scenery and landscape out of Grazalema into the national park of Grazalema and the Sierra de Zahara is absolutely stunning, Juan was helpful in pointing out the various bird and wildlife including the griffin vultures and wild mountain goats. It was a warm day and we stopped off for cold drinks and to refill our water bottles. For our second trip out, Juan came to our holiday accommodation in El Gastor and on my request we cycled a slightly shorter route of just over 40km to the picturesque towns of Olvera and Senetil. The route was equally as beautiful but probably not as demanding on my backside! Juan was great company and his English was excellent and personally I think anyone visiting the region as long as you can cycle a bike and have a reasonable level of fitness should go and experience a guided bike tour or hire bikes directly from their shop. The area is breathtaking and being on a bike you have the time and opportunity to see it in its full glory.

Realy happy with their service. Juan and Ana are professionals in their field. From the first contact it was easy to communicate with them and they proposed MTB track's with different skill levels and detailed description. We were able to find which suit to us. The scenery was nice the track was enjoyable. The bikes like new and top maintained. Recommended and hope to be back if we are in the region again.
