When our bike friends come to visit us, this is the ride we take them on because it showcases some of Granada’s various riding surfaces (including cobbles, bridges, and loose, rocky descents), and gives you great views of the Alhambra, Granada, and the valley beyond from some unique perspectives. Although it’s only 26.6km/16.5 mi (you can lengthen/shorten it if you want), the climbing demands some respect but you can bail out along the way plus, you are never more than 3km from the center of Granada.
