I'm a California kid living in Madrid, 7 hour drive to the surf so I decided to get back on a bike. 8) Just picked up a Fuel Ex 7 plus all the appropriate gear, now I just need a little knowledge of the area. I know Casa de Campo has tons of trails but I would have no idea where to start.

Anyone have any info or know any good trail guides in English for the area?

All is appreciated,

Paul

  • Hi Paul.
    Where abouts are you based in Madrid?
    If you know the Casa de Campo its a good start as its used for the cross country world cup round.
    Did you buy your Trek from a shop in Madrid?
    Most shops have clubs/teams and most have group rides for both road and mtb at the weekend.
    I dont know of any trail guides in English.
