La province of Malaga in bikepacking mode.

The province boasts of being one of the most mountainous in the country and of having a variety of forests that according to studies up to 27 types of forests and environments in the province.

That’s why Terral Bike Rental S.L. got down to work to create a route that is just that, simply spectacular and that every corner offers you a different landscape.

The start is in the town of Fuengirola, a coastal town known in half the world, from there we will leave towards the Serrania de Ronda, but not before passing through the Sierra de las Nieves Biosphere Reserve, villages such as Coin, Monda, Guaro, Alozaina, Yunquera and El Burgo will be the first part of our first part with two mountain passes such as Las Abejas and Puerto del Viento.

Ronda will welcome us after 90 kilometres and a couple of passes that will show us the way we have to go.


Once we leave Ronda we continue in the direction of San Pedro de Alcantara to take the exit towards the Genal Valley at the Puerto del Madroño.

 

We enter one of the most beautiful areas of the province and also of an unusual hardness, hard and short ramps will accompany us until the exit of Alpandeire.

The descent towards the station of Jimera de Libar, will give us a short break where once we reach this town we will head towards Benaoján and Montajaque passing through the door of the famous Cueva de la Pileta.

Ronda la Vieja awaits us on our way in the direction of Setenil de las Bodegas passing through Acinipo, vestiges of the Roman past in the area.

Setenil is a good place to make a stop in the first stage, the second block is somewhat more bearable in the first section, Cañete la Real, Almargen, Antequera, and Archidona among other towns, the final part of this second section is the icing on the cake with the ascent to the Puerto del Sol. Alfarnate and Colmenar.

We would say that reaching Colmenar or Casabermeja could be a good end to the second block.

 

The third block with the climb to Villanueva de la Concepción and all the part of La Joya, La Higuera and the gravel area between this area and Valle de Abdalajis will also test us.

The descent towards El Chorro and Caminito del Rey has images like this one.

 

Once we leave this area behind, we will cross the Guadalhorce Valley in its entirety.

The final part will take us to the Costa del Sol, but not before making the last climb to Mijas via the Colomares Castle in Benalmadena.

A race that as we say can be done in stages enjoying every kilometre of changing landscapes throughout the province of Malaga.
