Spain may not be the biggest country, but it is certainly full of many amazing mountain biking opportunities.
Aside from the numerous ones listed above, there are many popular options in the south of Spain as well in Andalusia. With numerous mountain ranges and hills covered in olive groves, there is nothing quite like a lovely ride down through the countryside.
Back north, following El Camindo de Santiago, which St James famously took to Santiago de Compostela, is another very popular option. Spanning over the course of eight days, the mountain biking version of the route also takes you to the French Way, which is the most popular variation of the route.
Along with finishing in front of the famed cathedral, expect to see much of northern Spain’s pristine countryside along with Puente de Órbigo, Cruz del Ferro, Os Ancares and Biduedo, among many others.
During the winter, temperatures are mild and rain is most frequent (but still not common) throughout Spain. Spring and autumn have warmer temperatures (20ºC - 25ºC) and are generally sunny and dry. Summer can be quite hot, which might make biking a bit tougher, but the days are almost all sunny, clear and beautiful. Expect temperatures around 30ºC, though
Depending on your destination, you can either fly into the international airports in Madrid (MAD) or Barcelona (BCN). Once you have arrived at one of these places it is easy enough to take a bus, train or connecting flight on to your final destination.
