Our roads

Thanks to our mild climate, you as a cyclist will meet your needs all year round. Although due to higher temperatures in summer the seasons of autumn, winter and spring should be more pleasant.

Mojácar‘s roads are known for their kilometres of heavenly variety for all cycling fanatics – winding, curved, uphill, downhill, flat, and uneven. It attracts cyclists with days of glorious sunshine and breath-taking scenery – the perfect setting for bike rides lasting for many hours.

The versatility of the roads, along with very little traffic, is overwhelming. You drive through plantations full of juicy oranges and shiny olives in the hilly desert landscapes. The gigantic rock formations, which stretch along the steep, twisting roads, take cyclists’ breath away. And if the Andalusían mountains were not impressive enough, the palm tree-lined coastal roads provide a perfect contrast. On the promenade overlooking the sea, cyclists are invited to relax and to enjoy the fresh sea air, amongst an ice-cold beer.
Mountain bikers find their treats in the surrounding mountains, which offer anything from gentle ascents to skyrocketing difficult tracks and bringing your body to absolute limits.

The stunning scenery, perfectly developed roads leading you up to more than 1000m heights will make every biker’s heart beat faster. With a bit of luck, you might even ride across some famous racing tour professionals from Team Katusha or Belkin, who pitch their winter-trainings camps here in Mojácar.

If your legs turn to jelly now thinking that you need to be a real freak to cycle in our area, then calm down – you can also enjoy the beautiful surroundings around one of the most beautiful white villages of Spain and its endless coastline with an E-Bike, which will “invisibly” support you going up some of the hills around us without anybody even knowing.

Want to rent your bicycle? … then we do love to help you!

“After ride”

After returning from a day of enjoying all of the above you or your body might long for some relaxation in our small and cosy SPA with Sauna – on request you can also book different kinds of massage, or whatever you desire to comfort your body and mind.

The Luxury B&B Cortijo El Sarmiento together with the countryside of Mojácar offers everything that a cyclist could wish for.

B&B Cortijo El Sarmiento – Mirador Urra

4/568.28 kmRoad1304 m

This Route leaves our Cortijo in Mojácar and takes you to the „Mirador Urra“. From this lookout point, you’ll have a unique view over the semi-desert landscapes. The restored cistern here once served as a watering point for cattle.
On your way first, you pass through „El Cortijo Grande“. Then we will find small slides along Royo Morera, Gafarillos and Los Molinos de Agua Rio.
On the way back, from Los Castaños, the route will be downhill for about 20 km.

B&B Cortijo El Sarmiento – Cortijo Nuevo – Zurgena – Bédar

5/5130.88 kmRoad2325 m

A bike route that starts in Mojácar and goes to Antas and further to Zurgena and Arboleas. At Albánchez you are on a height of 425m. From this point, you will start climbing up for about 7km to the highest point of this route at 770m. Then you pass through El Pocico and Lubrín to start the most challenging climb from El Marchal to Bédar with an average slope of 10%. As soon as you can see the Mediterranean again, the route only goes downhill …

B&B Cortijo El Sarmiento – Carboneras

4/581.53 kmRoad1481 m

Slightly more demanding cycle route … This route takes you alongside the coast to Carboneras with some spectacular views. Behind Carboneras the route will over 35km constantly climb into the Sierra Cabrera, our local mountains. At height of approx. 570m you’ve reached the highest point of this route. Then for the last 15km you will descend back to our Cortijo.

Mojácar – Sorbas

4/591.00 kmRoad1952 m

Cycle route with departure at Mojácar from where we will go to the 12 kilometres of ascent to Royo Morera by a very quiet road with little traffic, ideal for cycling.
After passing through Sorbas we will take the road to Lubrín, the highest point of the route, to begin the descent to Mojácar but not before facing the climb to Bédar.
As you will pass our Cortijo anyway you can as well start and finish “at home”. That will shorten the tour for about 5km in total and you will miss the last so-called “escalada piranha” passing Mojácar again … maybe that’s not too bad at that time of the ride 🙂
