If you’re looking to get away from the cold winter weather, Granada region could be the place for you. It’s been described as having ‘the best climate in Europe’ and it’s got a whole load of trails.
From a challenging charge up the Pico Veleta Pass at 3400m to riding hard down Sierra Nevada, the highest mountain range in Spain, this is one setting with no lack of gnarly trails.
Back in the day, ‘icemen’ in Granada used to walk up high in the mountains to get ice to cool cellars in the region. The paths they used now make for some sick trails – and you know for sure that they’ll have ice for your drink when you reach the bar afterwards!
Approx. Dec temperature: Highs of 16c, lows of 7c.
