Do I need to be fit?
In short, it is beneficial but not essential (see below). However, a basic level of climbing fitness and some previous experience riding a mountain bike off road does help! Due to the nature of our trails there is always going to be an element of climbing.
I'm not feeling at my fittest or I prefer more DOWN than up, can you still accommodate me?
Yes we can as we have easier routes available for intermediate riders. We can also arrange a couple of up lift days (additional cost applies) for the more gravity orientated riders, as well as tailoring our normal AM/XC routes, meaning you’ll do more down than up! Please note, advance notice (at the time of booking) is required for arranging easier weeks and/or uplift days.
How can I get the best deals on flights?
Using a price comparison website is often the most efficient way of booking flights saving you time and money. Skyscanner is a site we have used in the past:
How much does it cost to eat out?
In the local area you can eat out for about 15€ per person, which will buy you a two course meal with a drink.

Home cooked meals are available at the house from as little as 12.50€ per person for a pasta dish and 17.50€ per person for Spanish and other special dishes (inc. 3 course meal and house drinks).
