We are a small company offering guided gravel riding holidays in Southern Spain. We have been running mountain bike holidays here for about 5 years, and now we want to show people that Malaga is also a great place for gravel biking – there are literally thousands of kilometres of un-paved roads and tracks – amazing scenery, no traffic and great weather – it's really just ideal for gravel riding.

There's something for everyone - from easy scenic rides, to fun and technical, to full day big mountain epics. The terrain ranges from easy double track through wide open farmland and dirt roads through forest, to rough tracks, river crossings and even some singletrack that you could call 'almost MTB'.

Agree, most people can tackle these TTFs at a low level (as on our Green and Blue rides) but it isn’t much fun when these obstacles get a bit more obstacley, for the uninitiated riding becomes slow, difficult,

Wild About Argyll has teamed up with Bikepacking Scotland and Calmac Ferries to promote a series of car-free walking and cycling adventures for various abilities, starting at Dunoon Pier and Benmore Botanic Gardens.
