Rent a bike
We have partnered with Bicicletas la Estación, located at Calle Molinos, #20, in Granada's city center. In addition to their broad range of rental bikes, we've found their customer service to be exceptional, which is one of the reasons we've chosen to work with them. Another reason to rent from Bicicletas la Estación is that English is spoken there. Each of the buttons below links to their website where you can find detailed information about their rental bikes.
Each rental includes helmet and repair kit. Additional items available for rent include GPS units, panniers, handlebar mount for smartphones, and child seats. To request a rental bike, you can fill out the form below and your request will be emailed directly to Bicicletas la Estación.— Trails of the Alhambra

If climbing is your thing, then Granada is your sweet spot. As with most mountain bike or road rides here, this ride allows you to dial up or down the suffering depending on how you feel that day. The main features of this circular loop include an 8.5 km (5.3 mi.) dirt climb with a grade that ranges between 4.5 and 15%, and another shorter paved climb that tops out at 31% at its steepest part and then heads into some tricky — sometimes hike-a-bike singletrack for 2 km (1.3 mi).
