Hire bike options
We have our own small fleet of Full Suspension and Hard Tail bikes from YT, Mondraker and Whyte.
Working in collaboration with local partners, guests can hire e-bikes including Specialized Turbo Levo and Orbea Wild models. Bikes are delivered to our Casa ready for your arrival.
We also regularly use Orbea Alma hard tails fitted with trail MTB tyres and dropper posts. Perfect for many routes and all but the more technical enduro style trail descents.
Many guests bring their own bikes too.
epic XC routes
Many of our routes suit short travel full suspension or 29er hard tail bikes, that can cover the ground and roll over chunkier terrain in comfort.
There's often a climb, a long ridge line and long descents that can include fast and loose non-technical sections to steep rocky single track.
trail / enduro
For Advanced riders
For full on uplift based trail riding, the La Fenasosa bike is nearby and we can provide transport service is required.
Many of routes offer more technical trails as an alternative option to an easier XC section.
The Sant Esteve descent is 4.5km and includes narrow steep, loose rocky with ledges and small drops sections.
There are many 2-3km enduro sections off the Engineers trail.
There are multiple 4-6km enduro descents back to the Casa from Bocairent and many more.
For groups wanting non technical riding, we have many easier trails and routes that don't tackle the bigger and steeper climbs.
We can tailor the riding and routes to your level fitness and technical expertise. For example, if a group book onto a scheduled week first and want mellow riding, we'll run the week on that basis for others joining.

who is it for
Riders that like to pedal to the fun stuff, that don't mind a climb if rewarded with spectacular scenery and fun descents.
Year round riding
The area here is sunny, dry and yet verdant and green thanks to the underground aquifers that source the start of multiple rivers. The trails remain in great condition year round.
Summer riding can be hot, which usually means and early start or perhaps enjoying a shorter morning ride and a night ride once it's cooled.
Most of our routes are usually a circular loop, that start and ends at our Casa in Ontinyent. We don't tend to 'session' sections but rather treat every day as adventure, usually with several focal points serving as the riding and scenic highlights.
We have routes that head out in every direction and you'll be amazed at how diverse each one can be, with dramatically diverse vistas to be found every day.
One of the iconic mountains of the region and the highest peak in the Serra Mariola. It's possible to climb all the way from Ontinyent (350m) to the peak at over 1200m. It's not easy but the views and terrain is jaw-dropping in its beauty.
Serra Mariola routes
There are many spectacular routes through the including the Barxell Bridge near Alcoy, the Griffon Vulture colony and countless trails that can be reached from Agres, Bocairent, Banyeres and Muro, all of which make for fantastic places to take a detour when it's time to descend down from the mountains.

Ontinyent trail blast + optional Sant Esteve descent
