An easy and circular cycling route around the Montes de Malaga. One of my favourites to date. It is known locally as the ‘horse-shoe’ due it’s distinct semi-circular shape – the track below ‘closes’ this circle and finishes where it starts.
Although more of road bike track, it’s easily doable by mountain bike. There was very little traffic. Bar a seven-kilometre stretch that runs parallel to the high-speed road which separates Casabermeja and Colmenar, I didn’t see any cars at all.
The track starts in the Polideportivo Ciudad Jardin (the sports centre). The starting place for most cycling routes to the Montes de Malaga and surrounding areas.
