Meet the Malaga Bike Tours Team
Guided bike tours through Malaga in English and Spanish
Hola! I am Kay Farrell, the founder of Malaga Bike Tours. Originally from Cheshire, England, I lived in Toronto, Canada for many years where I cycled through snow and freezing temperatures for most of the year. I came to Malaga for one year in 2003 and… never left!
The climate is perfect for cycling all year round-no snow or ice here! I immediately fell in love with the city and its people, and above all, the spectacular Montes of Malaga. An avid mountain biker, I love nothing more than to jump on my bike and head for the hills- just minutes from the centre of the city.
Whilst on a trip to Barcelona in 2007, I signed up for a City Bike Tour to try something new and was totally impressed by what an amazing way a bike tour was to explore a new city. The seed was planted and then Malaga Bike Tours was born in May 2008. I absolutely adore Malaga and just love showing people around by bike and watching them fall in love with this enchanting city. As a client once said to me, “There’s a ‘wow’ on every corner.” After so many years’ experience doing bike tours, we are experts in spreading Malaga’s WOW factor. We promise you an unforgettable few hours on our bike tour and in the end you will agree with us that Malaga is better on a bike- a Malaga Bike Tours bike, of course!

Hola everyone! I am David, one of the Malaga Bike Tours guides. I come from a small white village of Malaga called Valle de Abdalajis, but now I live in Benalmadena, one of the gems of the Costa del Sol.
I have a lot of experience in dealing with the public, which I love. I have a degree in tourism and have worked in various branches of hospitality: restaurants, receptions but mainly as entertainment staff in hotels. I even had the opportunity to work on one of the most luxurious trains in the world, El Al-Andalus.
The reason why I decided to become a tour guide was to not only help people get to know Malaga, but that they come to love it! That my clients don’t just walk around its historical centre but that they get immersed in its history, smells and tastes.
If you want that adventure, I would be more than happy to accompany you!
Manager & Guided bike tours through Málaga in English and Dutch
Hola! I’m Fenne, born in Amersfoort in the centre of The Netherlands. Living abroad was on my agenda ever since I can remember! I accidently ended up in Malaga due to taking a teaching course. When the course ended, I decided to take a leap of faith and stay in Malaga even though I had little knowledge of the Spanish language and of all the other challenges I would have to face.
However, from day one, Malaga felt like home to me and still today after a long time here, I enjoy Malaga as a city: the atmosphere, the Malagueños and, of course, the climate! Working at Malaga Bike Tours has given me the opportunity to enjoy Málaga every day and show everybody how great the city is, on a bike!
Guided bike tours through Málaga in English and Dutch
Hola! My name is Sjors and I come from the beautiful village of Brummen in the Netherlands. For my studies, International Tourism and Management, I decided to leave my village and I move to Leeuwarden. I have always been interested in travelling, getting to know different cultures and learning other languages. I had a great time studying my degree and during my last year I had to choose an internship.
I had been to Spain several times and fell in love with the culture, the people and especially the climate. I had heard great stories about Málaga so I applied for 5 month internship at Malaga Bike Tours. From the moment I arrived here, I knew this place was amazing. Everything about Málaga is great; the food, the people the nice squares and the lovely narrow streets. During the tour, I aim to make my clients as enthusiastic about the city as I am.
After my internship was over it was so difficult for me to go back to the Netherlands, so I decided to come back to the beautiful city of Málaga and work full- time at Malaga Bike Tours… where I hope to be for a long time!

Hola a todos! My name is Demi, born in Volendam, a small village next to Amsterdam. My dream was always to live in Spain. I have lived in other parts of Spain already but when I came on a trip to Andalusia back in 2017, is when I fell in love with Malaga, a charming beautiful compact city and everything that it has to offer. I decided to stay a little longer and take a Spanish course – and I am still here and not planning to go any place else for a long time!
Back in Holland, I studied Tourism so Málaga is the perfect place for me to put my studies into practice. I have worked in various areas of tourism and in hotels. One of my best experiences was working as an entertainer, as for me it is really gratifying to see that I can make people have a great time. Now, as your bike tour leader I can promise to show you the best of Malaga in just a few hours and have a LOT of fun at the same time. Just one piece of advice: when you come to Malaga, be careful. You might never want to leave!
Guided bike tours through Malaga in Dutch and English
Hola! My name is Linde, born and raised in Tilburg, a city in the south of the Netherlands. I studied International Business and Languages where I “unfortunately” chose to take French and German courses instead of Spanish. I regretted that so much that I spontaneously decided to do a Spanish course in Málaga once I was graduated. That I didn’t regret! I fell in love with Málaga immediately because of its marvellous monuments, the coast, the climate, the people and, of course, the gastronomy. I immediately felt right at home at home in such a vibrant city!
After studying Spanish for 5 months here, I returned to the Netherlands but couldn’t get Málaga out of my head. Every year, I would tell people that I was going to move to Málaga, and finally after EIGHT years of talking it about it, I was “brave” enough to leave everything behind and move here permanently. And I don’t have a single regret!
I feel really lucky to have been able to join the great Malaga Bike Tours team. As a typical Dutchie, I am used to cycling every day so it makes sense for me to show people this beautiful city by bike. Meeting new and interesting people and working outside every day isn’t that bad either!
So, if you are ready to explore Málaga in the best way (on a bike!) and to hear really cool stories and fun anecdotes about the city, come join me on a bike tour and fall in love with Málaga too!

Hola! I’m Laura, native of the north of France, now known as the Haut-De- France, I ‘m a real Ch’ti, but without the accent! As part of my Master’s degree in international business, I did an internship in Malaga in 2012. I fell in love with this city, its beauty, its culture, its aspirations and its inhabitants. I returned to France to finish my studies but Malaga was always in my heart. So, shortly after graduating, I took the plunge and came back here to live! I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to help Francophones discover Malaga and share with them stories and anecdotes of the city on the Malaga Bike Tour. It’s a real pleasure every time! There is no better way to discover the city and its famous and hidden places than by bike. Sun and blue sky, joy and good humour are always waiting for you, so do not hesitate to join us!
