Via Verde de la Sierra - Cycling Day Trip from Ronda
Great family bike ride along the unsurfaced track of a disused railway line. This easy 36km route gently descends through rural countryside from the town of Olvera to Puerto Serrano. The route meanders through valleys, olive groves, forests and beside flowing rivers. You will pass through 30 tunnels (the longest is nearly 1km in length), ride over 4 viaducts and past a griffon vulture colony, where the birds nest high up on the cliffs above the track. Watch these huge birds soar effortlessly through the air and maybe pop into the visitor centre to watch the “vulture-cam”.Note: This route is self-guided; we drive you to the start point at the old station building in Olvera (approx 45 minutes from Ronda) and the minibus meets you in Puerto Serrano to bring you back to Ronda. We allow 3.5 hours for the ride itself along the Via Verde.
