Arriving at Malaga Airport

Once you have passed through customs control (and you have a nice new stamp in your passport!) you will need to collect your bike and any luggage you checked onto the flight from the carrousel.

Where to meet

We will confirm this with you beforehand but we usually all meet up at the Departures car park on the top floor

Transfer to Lanjaron

Once we're all together and have everything sorted we will load the van and transfer to Lanjaron. The transfer time is approximately 90 minutes and we aim to do one transfer once we're all together.

The transfer back to Malaga departs at 10.30am after breakfast. The transfer time is 90 minutes so you should be at the airport for 12pm.

If this transfer time doesn't fit your schedule let us know and we can always arrange an alternative, although there might be a cost involved.

Skill Level

You will need to be able to corner and use your brakes instictively. Confidence desending at speed and riding in a group close together. You should expect to be challenged on some sections. This time, it's not a holiday, it's a training camp!


The fitter you are the more fun you'll have. But that does not mean you need to be a pro/elite rider. There are some large climbs and we are usually out on the bikes for 5-7 hours each day. Whilst there is a support vehicle we try not to use it except when really needed.


The airport to fly into and out from is Malaga (AGP).

The transfer to Lanjaron upon arrival is when the last guest arrives. Airport transfers cost 100€ (usual cost is 150€) and this is per trip, not per person.


The transfer from Lanjaron at the end of the week is in the morning of the Saturday to coincide with the first departing flight. If your flight is an evening one then you are welcome to leave your bags at our base in Lanjaron until you want to leave. An additional airport transfer is 100€ if available and time permits.

Hassle free, convenient, cheap flights

Flying to Malaga really is very straight forward, but there are some things you might like to know before you fly. And remember, it's part of your holiday so you should enjoy it!

  • *The airport to fly into is Malaga, Spain. Airport code AGP
  • *Your passport MUST be valid for at least six months from the date of departure
  • *Different airlines have different policies on luggage, please check and adhere to the recommendation!
  • *Toiletries, including gels, shaving foam, toothpaste etc.' must be in containers of 100ml or less
  • *You do NOT need a visa to fly to Spain
  • *The flight time from the UK is about 3 hours

When you land

If you arrive early and you've beaten us to the airport please be assured that we will be there as soon as possible. However, for your own comfort and to make finding you a bit easier (despite your large box or bag!) we recommend that you take a seat and grab a coffee in the bar just outside the arrivals lounge.


The accommodation is a modern, very quiet, self contained, large apartment in Lanjaron. The apartment sleeps four with two double bedrooms. It has views of the Lanjaron castle down to the coast and is in THE perfect location for road and mountain biking. All gas, electric, high speed broadband etc.' is included in the cost.


The apartment is self contained with all modern facilities and everything you would need to cater for yourself.

Lanjaron is a stunning spar town had has a good selection of supermarkets, great bars and resturants. There are cashpoint/ATMs and even high street banks!


Talk to us and tell us what you're looking to gain from your training camp. We can put together the perfect itinarary based on mileage/time in the saddle to cater to every need. We know the quietest roads, best bars and cafes to stop at as well as the best mountain climbs. don't leave it to chance, even if you just want to do your own thing, let us know..


If you are unfortunate enough to need collecting whilst out on your ride (out of daylight hours/puncture/chain snapped etc.') we can recover you at approximatly 50% less than a taxi.


We strongly recommend that you take out insurance to cover you and your kit. A european health card will cover most things for free if you're from the UK otherwise you'll be charged.

Cash, Card and where can I get it?

The local currency in Spain is the euro (€). There are plenty of cashpoints/ATMs in Lanjaron and banks wheere you can change currency but cards with chip and pin or contactless is used everywhere. However, we recommend that you check with your bank regarding fees for using your card for cash withdrawals and general transactions.

How much cash will I need?

We usually recommend £100 / 120€ / $125 spending money. Lanjaron is very good value for money with eating out. Drinks and a good meal, with wine or a few beers will cost in the region of 12€


You must have your own insurance which should include helicopter evacuation and repatriation. A search on the internet will reveal a host of insurers to choose from, but please ensure that it includes extreme sports. We do not go above 3000m. In the past we have used companies like Sports Cover Direct who are expensive but seem to have a good reputation. Other recommended companies are Ski Card and the Austrian Alpine club although they may not include baggage insurance.


We are in the process of finding an insurance partner to offer the best coverage for our guests. As soon as we have these details we will update the website.

MTB, Road or eBike?

We always recommend bringing your own bike unless you're coming on one of our eBike adventures.

If you do need to hire a bike please let us know well in advance and we can arrange bike hire for you.

For the trail

When out on the trail there are some items you should always take with you as you would if you were going out for the day on your bike at home. Please see the list below

  • *Bladder - 2ltr Minimum
  • *Pump
  • *Basic first aid kit
  • *Spare innertubes
  • *Multi-tool

For evenings

A warm jumper or fleece for when you're at the bar in the evening is also recommended.

We have NEVER cancelled a ride although there have been times when we have changed the route. Your safety is our prime concern and your guide will always have the final say. The mountains here go to 3500m and we know them well and as Mountain Biking is a dynamic sport and influenced by many factors such as fitness, ability, weather and other potentially unforseable events there may be a need at some point to amend or change a route or the itinarary.

Unless you're coming as part of a group or on a private tour/adventure the maximum group size is 10. We need a minimum of four to run a tour.
