Down Hill Bike Ride
If you fancy an exciting outdoor adventure without too much physical exercise, then a thrilling Down Hill Bike Ride is just the thing. Get away from the hustle and bustle of Benidorm for a day and enjoy stunning mountains, lush valleys, traditional villages, castles, and a beautiful array of flora & fauna while you take in the fresh mountain air.
There are plenty of bike hire companies in Benidorm, but during the summer season the city is busy and, lying on the foothills of the Puig Campana Mountain, the roads out of the city are steep. Down Hill Bike Ride offers all the beautiful scenery, great roads and refreshment stops along the way, and any detours that are not downhill, you will be driven to in the company’s vehicle.
Down Hill Bike Ride Itinerary
Pick Up – You need to be ready and waiting at 09:30 for pick up from your accommodation in Benidorm or the nearby residential areas. The drive to the top of Aitana Mountain is about an hour, and on arrival you will be given a safety talk before donning your helmet for the start of the adventure.
Morning Ride – This is where the fun starts, with a 9 kilometre winding run down to the village of Penaguila where, before being driven to the highest point of the ride, you will have a brief stop where you can sample the village’s fresh spring water. After being driven to the next part of the ride, it’s another scenic run into the village of Alcoleja where you will be driven to Aitana Safari Park’s Cannibal Restaurant for lunch (not included in the price)
Afternoon Ride – A clear run to the finish line near the village of Sella where a few welcome drinks can be enjoyed in one of the local bars. Here you will proudly receive your certificate of achievement as proof of your 30 kilometre ”mountain trek” before the return journey to Benidorm, arriving back around 16:00.
