As seen in the press...
The Vuelta a España ended in Madrid three weeks ago but there is still time to cycle in Spain before winter. Skedaddle.com has a seven-day escorted “Trans Andaluz” mountain-biking break starting on Oct 27.
The Telegraph (2019), Spain out of season: 10 amazing breaks for autumn and winter
The holiday lived up to all my expectations and much more. The most demanding but rewarding and enjoyable experience I have had in a long time. The word Holiday cannot truly describe this amazing adventure.
Each day was different with a never ending variation in terrain and scenery, a very rich and challenging experience. The accomodation was very good with comfortable hotels with lots of character. Lunch supplied by Sebastian from the Transit was excellent. After a hard mornings cycling Sebastian greeted us warmly with an amazing spread and uplifting banter.
To have a freshly cooked pasta dish and other local delicacies on the side of a remote mountainside was cycling gourmet heaven. There was always an excellent selection of fruit, nuts, snack bars etc. available morning, noon and night. You can understand how important this was to the Trans Andaluz enjoyment!
I loved the fact it was a small group, we were all of a similar level and got on really really well. The above meant that we were quick on the trails and there was very little time between 1st and last at the stops between sections. This allowed us to arrive in good time at the hotels, enjoy the surroundings and relax. The Skedaddle Spain guides, as ever, were excellent and they were most definitely part of the holiday too. A great last night and some local knowledge employed to have some great seafood and Mojitos in the beach bar.
The day from Tolox to El Burgo stood out with great climbs and descents. The final descent from Puerto de la mujer was amazing!
Riding along an amazing single track, with some technical treats to add to the fun in glorious sunshine with a strong tail wind and Africa to the left. Just perfect!
Steve (tour leader) was a terrific guide! Despite the fact he had a fractured arm, he made the trip, with his happy persona, great local knowledge and even some terrible jokes!
The Guides were excellent...
Dan was excellent, he maintained his cool and sense of humour despite having to change plans due to the adverse conditions. He was extremely knowledgeable about the locations and highly entertaining throughout.
The two other guides Stephen and Andy were fantastic. Highly experienced, very personable and patient with everyone in the group.
We were very impressed with all the accommodation, each night was very different but equally as good!
Exemplary tour leader!
Leaving your hotel and cycling through beautiful countryside to your next exciting trails with great guides. The tour leader was exemplary – he is up there with the best leaders I’ve ever experienced – very competent mountain biker, diligent, caring with a tremendous sense of humour!
The singletrack descent off Puerto des Mujers on day 1 was excellent. I also really enjoyed the mast trails on the last day. But I think day 3 was the best overall day in terms of challenge and reward. The river trails in the morning were really fun, and the long descent after a tough climb in the afternoon was also great.
