The bike route ends in Marbella because it is difficult to get to Málaga by bike at this moment. Within the next few years a coastal path will be available but at this very moment is not possible.

If you like golf, there is a nice Parador in which you can practice and if you prefer to stay in the city center, there is another Parador in Gibralfaro Castle. Let us know your preferred option and we will give you a quote. If you want to make your own way to Málaga or a different place, of course, there is not problem.

Thank you so much Jorge for our memorable biking trip through Andalusia— the fragrance of the orange blossoms while cycling through hills of olive trees, mountain passes with incredible vistas, white villages with excellent espresso truely memorable. The hotels were amazing respite after long days cycling! Thank you as well for your assistance in fixing the bikes and the shuttles — excellent support.

Ants on Track is wonderful! For being a self-guided tour, I felt very supported every day of the trip. Jorge and Agustin were very available and provided thoughtful suggestions for cultural activities, sights, and dining at every destination. As for the routes, every day I thought «now this was my favorite day.» Ants on Track went above and beyond to ensure I had a great experience.

We used Ants on Track in November of 2023 for a 5 day trip from Granada, via Ronda, to Marbella. 3 couples, half with e-bikes. The Ants on Track team was very well organized. Well ahead of the trip, we received both a paper guidebook and digital GPX maps.
During the trip, each day we received updates via Whatsapp that included dinner suggestions and points of interest along the way. Several times we needed help with reservations or ordering taxis – and the Ants team was very responsive.
I would use this firm again when biking in Spain.

Sporty during the day with the route, at night relaxed, with excellent food and very nice hotels.

Our trip to Granada was already very pleasant because we arrived by high-speed train from Malaga.
We decided to rent electric bikes. Afterwards, we were very grateful for the decision since there were a few meters more altitude than we thought.

We were impressed by the friendliness of the rental company „La Estación Bicicletas“. Without any problems, they equipped the bikes with all our wishes, such as a mobile phone holder or a larger bike bag. Excellent!

The route was very varied, picturesque and the sporting challenge was always very exciting.
The individual stages were well planned. Once, we had to take a detour because of the GPS.

We climb mountains and then go down at high speed. I had a great time!

We took breaks in small bars, to drink and eat something. We enjoy the sociability of the Spanish.

The combination of sport and relaxation did us a lot of good.
Only once during the last stage from Ronda to Marbella did we cycled on a busy road. The traffic was enormous and we couldn’t leave the road.

In conclusion: It was an excellent vacation and it will not be the last route with the tour operator.
