Though it was written that some sections were closed, in fact only one small section in the very beginning of route was closed. Even that wasn't problem because rental firm (Sesca 09) took us behind that closed section. Other so called "closed" sections were perfectly...More

Just did this amazing bike ride hired bikes at Olvera then did approx 25 miles which was fantastic. We got taxi back from the village. Cost 45€ well worth it. Would most definately do it again.

Good idea for a family trip. Route from Olvera to Puerto Serrano is very pleasant with a variety of views, landscapes, bird species (dozens of them) (e.g. vultures - guess it's the biggest colony in Europe! - truly an amazing spectacle), as well as plentiful...More

We hired bikes from the excellent Hike + Bike The Sierras in Ronda and they dropped us off at the start in Olvera. The ride is a reclaimed rail line winding 34km through the mountains in a mix of tunnels and breathtaking open vistas. The...More

Breath of fresh air - deep in the Spanish countryside. Via Verde or as we Brits call it - The Greenway. This off road spectacle links up Olvera with Puerto Serrano about 38 kms away. Passing through beautiful Spanish countryside, over viaducts all on gravel...More
