Just come back from a week riding in sunny Spain with Sierra cycling.
Bloody Brilliant :clap:

Great riding , excellent guides and fabulous trails.
Think of Bedgebury , but with bigger steeper climbs , longer , steeper descents , loads of rocks and NO mud.
The guides (Simon and James) know the trails and are always helping with technique tips and coaching.

On a typical day, the van takes you up around 700m , then it is pedal and or push, to gain a bit more height.
Then it is trails and fire roads down to a well earned lunch.
After lunch, it is more trails all the way back down to sea level and the house.
Don't get me wrong, there are some ''cheeky climbs'' and ''small ups'' and ''interesting bumps'' along the way , but it is mostly down.
Depending on the group you can easily do 20-25 miles a day.

They are based in Fuengirola , about 20 minutes from Malaga airport. (they pick up & drop off)
At the moment they have 2013/14 Giant Trance hire bikes, but they are renewing the whole fleet soon.

Google Mijas epic descent or Malaga downhill SRAM test track for a taste of what it's like.
For the braver/younger among you they can tailor the weeks to suit , with more Downhill routes.
http://www.sierracycling.com is where they live.

Enjoy

Yep , really enjoyed it, just about knackered by the end of the week.

Loads of choice for flights to Malaga , got mine for £80 return , including hold baggage.
A weeks riding, including bike hire.
Full on Breakfast is included.
5 -10 Euro a day for lunch
They have a fridge stocked with soft drinks and beers , all included for the after ride refresher.
Then whatever you want to spend on your evening meal.
To be honest , I was usually shattered, so it was a couple of beers and a meal, then little stroll round and bed !
20 - 30 Euro a night ish.
All in, it cost me about £750 - £800
