About road routes:
The tarmac/asphalt roads around Malaga are perfect for the weekend cycling enthusiast as well as for the professional athlete. During spring time many professional cycling teams, but also individual athletes come here to do training camps before race season kicks off. The roads are in good condition, traffic is light and drivers are considerate. If you are planning to visit the white villages (Pueblo Blancos) these types of roads should be your first option.
About MTB and Trekking tracks and routes:
Most of Malaga’s MTB routes are in the Natural Park called the “Montes de Malaga”. In the spectacular Montes of Malaga, there are innumerable trails with breathtaking views offering a quiet and safe area to go on a MTB tour or do some training.
Please select the MTB routes according to your orienteering skills. When following mountain bike tracks, we advise that you use an outdoor GPS-device. The routes in the Montes are quite challenging, so to be in good physical condition is necessary.

The Euro Velo 8 cycling route (incomplete at time of writing)
The European Cyclists Federation is developing a network of cycling routes connecting the whole of the continent of Europe. Approximately 20,000 kms of the planned 60,000kms are already in place. On OpenStreetmap you can see some of EuroVelo cycling routes and lots of other cycle routes in a digital form.
EuroVelo 8 connects many destinations that are popular tourist attractions in their own right: Cadiz, Malaga, Barcelona, Monaco, Venice, the Croatian Coast, Cyprus – and the list goes on. It is little surprise therefore that the Mediterranean Route receives more interest than any other EuroVelo route. And whilst many of its destinations are already internationally famous, there are still lots of undiscovered gems to be found along the way.
