The Best Gravel Bike Trails in Guadix, Andalusia
Cuevas Guadix


Cuevas – Spanish for caves – are fully equipped apartments build into the hills around Guadix. It is a truly special experience to stay. You will feel like being in hobbit land. Optional you can also choose to camp for free. 



Best is of course by bike ;).

The closest international airports is in Malaga.

You can arrive via Malaga, either by bike which is a stunning ride or per bus and train. The same goes for Granada (40min by train). We highly recommend to take a whole week off and explore Granada or the coasts of Andalusia.

Shuttle service from Malaga Airport or Granada

Goyo Adventure will offer this service for us. Simply reach out to them and tell them your preferred pick up and return time. One way from Malaga Airport is 50 € to Guadix and 35€ from Granada. 

It is a unique experience to stay inside them. There are proper apartments with bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms built into the hills around Guadix. You can have your own one or share them with others.

This is what we ask ourselves every day. A unique place on earth.

No, you should simply feel comfortable riding on loose ground.

We believe a Gravel bike with 45mm tubeless tires and 2 bar. You will be also fine on slightly smaller tires or on a MTB with fast-rolling tires

Yes, you are. Just make sure you set it up with fast-rolling tires.

Yes, but just the express distance on Saturday and the Sunday event. for the longer distances the risk would be too high to run out of battery in the middle of nowhere.

May is the perfect time to come to Andalusia. It is already warm but without the extreme heat of the summer.

Of course, you should have a valid health, travel and liability insurance.

You will have the following three options:

  • Transfer of the participation fee to 2023
  • Refund of the participation fee, minus 20 CHF administration costs
  • Donation of the participation fee in favor of the event
