Downhill River Bed Bike Ride

If you fancy getting off the beaten track for a fantastic bike ride with minimum effort, then a Downhill River Bed Bike Ride is just the thing. Since my earliest childhood memories I have been fascinated by river beds, and have spent many days exploring the dry river beds near my home town in Africa. I think the excitement comes from never knowing what you will discover around the next bend; a cave maybe, or for me the ultimate thrill was to find a deep gorge that still had water, and the chance to net a few fish. So, when on holiday in Benidorm, if you want to try a bike ride with a difference, give the downhill river bed bike ride a try.

Downhill River Bed Bike Ride

Marco Polo Expediciones have been established in Benidorm for many years and are the leaders in adventure activities and extreme sports. The ride is for groups of 6 – 15 persons, and after being picked up from your accommodation in Benidorm you are driven into the surrounding hills where the adventure begins at a picturesque mountain lake.

Once the bikes are unloaded and everyone has their helmets, you set off on the 22 kilometre ride which, aside from a few short uphill rises, is all downhill. Winding your way along the river bed, you will pass through tall cane fields and fragrant groves of lemons and oranges, getting the chance to test your mountain biking skills on swooping bends and steep ravines, until the riverbed opens into the bay of Altea where your exhilarating downhill river bed bike ride ends.
