I loved the mountain bike guided tour! Credit must be given to our group’s guide Genís. He quickly realised that there was a skill gap within the group. In order to ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment he only took us down routes where there were two different paths, one being easy and one being more challenging. I would 100% recommend to anyone who does not mind getting a bit of muck on themselves.
