Mountain Biking from Casa Santa Filomena
Orgiva is the perfect base for superb mountain biking in the Sierra Nevada, the Alpujarras and the Contraviesa. All these areas can be reached from the house without the need for a vehicle drop off. So, all you need is your bike and a desire to explore and experience some world class mountain biking routes.
The area is particulalry good for those wishing to do cross-country routes on forest or mountain tracks; 1,500 - 2,000m ascents are achievable. There's the added bonus of always being able to include a good café/bar on your route. As well as cross-country routes, you can find some excellent single-track and technical down-hilling routes too.
We can supply you with routes to load onto your GPS device or Google Earth printouts. If you need a local guide, we can also organise one for you.
There is sufficient room to securely store your bikes at Casa Santa Filomena and if you wish to hire bikes for your visit, we recommend the following company, which is about 35mins by vehicle from the house: http://bullbikes.com/en/333-rent-a-bike
