For a fantastic day out, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, why not try downhill bike riding. Unlike most conventional mountain bike riding where a certain amount of stamina and fitness are needed.
The Downhill Bike Ride in Benidorm
The team at Downhill Bike Ride offer a unique and exhilarating 24 mile bike ride where you just let gravity do the hard work. The experience is open to most age groups and even if you haven’t ridden a bike in years, it’s a safe and easy way to take in the stunning mountains, valleys, wildlife, quaint villages and ancient castles whilst breathing the pure mountain air.
