Spain 2014

We returned to Spain for our second five night holiday with Trailworld (www.trailworld.co.uk) in the town of Villanueva del Trabuco.

As before, Andy picked us up at Malaga airport, and headed back to meet up with Fran again at the Farmhouse.

The accommodation is ideal and the farmhouse setting with gardens and a pool were perfect. When Andy took us get kitted out with off road riding gear and select our machines, we were pleased to see that he had the latest versions of the AJP bikes that we had enjoyed last year. Vic and Alan opted to take the 200cc machines with the lower seat height and Sandy took a 250cc  bike.

Andy selected a variety of minor roads, trails, and tracks, which were generally not too taxing (although he can vary that for anyone seeking a more testing time!) We had two days of riding through the countryside before our rest day when we were joined by four guys from England on a bike touring holiday in Spain. While we relaxed by the pool they went off with Andy.

Again the food was marvelous starting with a great cooked breakfast from Fran, lunches in village tavernas, and an evening meal in the town. One evening Fran and Andy provided a barbeque at the farmhouse, and on another evening we returned to the local quiz night, but did not match our success of last year.

We said it last year – and will say it again!!

Andy was a marvelous guide and leader! He understood what we were looking for, and his great knowledge of trails in the area provided that exactly. Fran and Andy were marvelous and friendly hosts, and the holiday was excellent. 

Another great adventure!
