In this dreamy enclave you can find mountain bike routes through the beaches of Conil for all tastes, through pine forests, the beach, paths, and dirt and paved roads… A wide range of options to choose from. The only thing you will need to worry about is checking your bike so you ride the track without any problems.
Conil de la Frontera to Caños de Meca Route
This route is relatively new, since it opened on 4th May. It is 8 miles long and goes from Conil de la Frontera to Caños de Meca, and its entire route runs parallel to the A-2233 road. It is a relatively simple, flat and quiet road, but very beautiful.
The Eurovelo is not strictly speaking a route as such, since what we are talking about here is a European project to facilitate being able to travel on bike through different countries in Europe. We include it here because part of this project runs through the Mediterranean (from east to west) and it currently passes through 11 European countries: France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Slovenia, Monaco, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Albania, Montenegro and Cyprus.
Calas de Roche and Conil de la Frontera
This trail is a circular route that is almost 9.5 miles long. If you decide to do it, you will enjoy the wonderful landscapes surrounding Roche (different beach, pine forest and Mediterranean bush habitats). During the route you will also find species of sea juniper, a protected species and residence of the chameleon.
Pinar y calas de Roche – Linear route in Roche, Conil de la Frontera
This is a linear route that is approximately 6.5 miles long, so bear in mind that it will be the same distance if you return. Along this route you will see cliffs, pine forests and coastal landscapes. It starts in Connatur, a local farm in Roche, and we tell you that it starts here because it is important to enjoy one of the amazing and super healthy breakfasts made with the super food moringa so that you have the fuel to do the route. The coves and pine forest are worth it!
Fuente del Gallo to Torre del Puerco
One of the most popular routes to do both on bike and on foot is the route that starts from the so-called Fuente del Gallo with destination Torre del Puerco, an enclave that is located just before arriving at Sancti Pertri. It is a very simple route so anyone can do it and you will be able to enjoy incredible cliffs and amazing flora and fauna.
Tips for enjoying a safe bike route
- Wear suitable clothing. When riding a bike it is very important to wear suitable clothing that dries easily, since pedalling uphill will make you sweat.
- Eat and drink fluids during the ride. When you are cycling it is important to constantly take small sips of water. That way you will avoid cramps. It is also important to eat snacks along the route, since these will be your fuel.
- Take your rubbish with you. Never leave rubbish in the forest. It is really embarrassing to see our natural spaces polluted with rubbish that many throw away along the way.
- Check the mechanical condition of your bike. Remember that your means of transport if you take a bike route is your bicycle, so it makes sense to check that everything is in perfect condition before starting.
