Hi Guys and Gals

Thinking about going out to Spain at the end of August for a week of riding. I have checked a few sites out and they all look great.

Has anyone been out with any of the companies? Any comments / recommendations?

Anone recommend other destinations / companies?

I want to go and ride miles and miles of dusty singletrack.
Thanks for your help :wink:

    I've been with http://www.joy-riders.com and it was excellent. Trails superb as expected and the accommodation was top notch, a lot more luxurious than your usual mtb holidays.

    not been to spain but just come back from the pyrenees in June with these guys.

    all inclusive holiday with Ian and Angela Pendry. Both outstanding guides/riders who go out of their way to give you a fantastic holiday. It is now on my yearly trips list (funds permitting). MBR did an article on them last year and there is a video of Danny Milner (MBR journo) doing the "descent to Olette" which we did and was just incredible.


    The location is right on the border with Spain and we rode on both sides. We also paid a visit to La Molina bike Park which was amazing! (Far better than Les Gets etc - and thats from somebody who has been there)

    Wow - that looks lovely.

    I don't mind getting muddy etc when i'm out riding but i'm all in favour of a bit of luxury afterwards!! :D

    great trails with coaching from 2 pro DHers (one old, one current). Food in Bubion is great, and the accomodation is a proper spanish experience!!
