      Excellent! You won't be disappointed...
      This was a great way to spend half a day! The tour was custom-tailored to my riding level and Kevin providing coaching/tips to help push me and develop my skill(s) as a rider. I have recommended to any/all friends visiting Madrid - no matter the level of the rider. Great equipment, encouraging guide, options regarding trail difficulty - super affordable for the experience. Give it a shot - you won't be disappointed!

      Excellent afternoon MTB
      We had a great time riding with Kevin just outside Madrid. Kevin is a super cool guy and very experienced. The bikes were great, the trails were fun and the company excellent. Kevin made organising the day super easy. Can’t wait to do it again!

      Best day in Madrid!
      I has a fantastic day out with tour leader, Kevin. He was totally professional, ensured that the trails we rode on were perfectly suited to my ability and was also excellent company. The riding was perfect - great, smooth single track and we had the trails to ourselves. It really was one of the best days of my time in Spain and I would highly recommend it to mtb riders of all abilities. The day was perfectly tailored for me and was excellent. Thank you Kevin for the awesome ride.

      Joe was a great guide who patiently waited for me to get it together after a wine tour the previous night. After getting to the bike shop they set me up with some protective gear, a great GT duel suspension with a excellent performing dropper post. After a very gradual climb to reach the summit the downhill proved to be pretty technical, at times rowdy, and most importantly very fun. Both joe and Kevin were fantastic and would recommend this trip to Everyone. You won’t be disappointed! 🤙🏻

      Mountain biking with Kevin
      Brilliant ride with Kevin! Kevin is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide and it was a blast to ride with him. He will push you to challenge yourself, while still making sure you are safe the entire time. This is a no-brainer if you want to get out of the downtown hustle and bustle and enjoy nature. Highly recommend!

      A lot of fun
      I ride mostly downhill back home in Australia and was really impressed with this ride. Kevin my guide was energetic, positive and a skilled rider. Had an absolute blast and took in some cool scenery as well. Thanks

      The beer taste so good after!
      First of all... what a great guy! Kevin is so friendly and fun. He was patient and encouraging, I have only been riding for 6 months. Kevin took the time to access my skills and gave me some good pointers to help me improve. I felt safe and confident out there on the trails. Kevin pushed my limits a little further but it was well worth it. The beer and food did taste so much better that evening after a great ride as you mentioned Kevin. Thanks mate!

      Incredible service from Kevin. 2 days with him and he adjusted each day to address my technique needs and fatigue.
      Great 2 days over a free weekend in Madrid. One on one with Kevin day 1 then day 2 Joe joined as 3 other riders had booked. Only 20 minutes from Madrid. Excellent lessons and tracks. Made sure day 2 we started earlier so I could get my afternoon flight in time.

      Highly recommended. Kevin provides everything you need for a super MTB outing - hotel pickup, top notch bike and gear, hand-picked trails to suit your ability, coaching on technique, photos and videos while you ride, tips for enjoying the rest of the city... all at a very reasonable price. Great way to spend the day.

      Amazing Experience
      Foremost, Kevin and Joe were fantastic guides. They tailored the experience to our skill level, and pushed us farther than we thought we could go. If you're looking for a bit of adrenaline during your time in Madrid, Kevin and Joe are the ones to deliver it. 11/10 would recommend.

      Amazing way to get your adrenaline pumping and see another side of Madrid
      Highly recommended! Kevin and Cowboy Joe are very knowledgeable of the trails around Madrid. This is a great way to see the other side of the city. Great fun, very convenient and they have all the gear you'll need!

      What a great experience!
      Mountain Cranks is that perfect get-away. If you've had enough of touring the city, I highly recommend giving these guys a call and going on an MTB ride. They know the routes like the palm of their hand. It's a bit tiring but in the end it's all worth it as they show you great sites of the city from afar. The video-edit as a remembrance is quite unique. Unparalleled experience so far. They deserve the 5 stars.

    In a word, this was the best mountain biking tour I could have imagined. If you would like to spend a couple of hours mountain biking in the beautiful countryside a few minutes from the Madrid city center, this is your ticket. First, a huge shout out to our guide, Kevin, who is fully fluent in English (and Spanish, of course). This guy is a great communicator, making our reservation scheduling and logistics a breeze. Kevin also fit the bikes and rode the tour with us, gauging our skill level and adjusting the course to provide a challenging and safe ride. It was clear that he customized the tour to our abilities and goals. He gave us plenty of pointers on mountain biking as well as acted essentially as a tour guide, pointing out items of interest along the way. Kevin is a star. Next, the equipment was top-notch. We were issued and fitted with high quality bikes, helmets, photchromatic goggles, backpacks, water bottles, and helmets. The bikes had an adjustable full suspension, disk breaks, finger shifting, and lever controlled seat post. Great equipment, and in excellent working condition. We chose not to use e-bikes for the main tour, but had a chance to try out some electronic assist e-bikes for a spin on a trail after the main tour, and that was really fun as well. The shop location was perfect, just a minute’s ride to the trailhead where a large variety of terrain and trails exist for hikers, bikers, and horseback riders. The extensive trails were not crowded. We made our way through various types of trails including single track, half pipe descents, with optional jumps. We were always safe, but also had the option of pushing our limits. During the ride, Kevin expertly took a large number of photos and videos of our ride, which he sent to us electronically, no extra charge, shortly after the ride. In all, I simply cannot say enough about this experience, and I endorse it without reservation.

    We had an amazing time with Kevin exploring the madrid trails, it was like riding with an old friend. The riding was great fun and he managed to find stuff that both my partner and I could push ourselves on but not go too far out of our comfort zones. The bikes were good quality and he lent us bags, gloves and helmets so we didnt have to get our own stuff sandy. It is a must do trip for the mountain bikers who just need to get out of the city for a while.

    Thanks to Kevin at Mountain Cranks, I had a phenomenal day of riding in Madrid.

    About a month prior to arriving in Madrid I reached out to Kevin via email and he was very prompt in responding and gave me info I asked about like bringing my own pedals, how long the ride would likely be, and where we could meet.

    Kevin picked me up from central Madrid and we drove about 30 min to Bike Zone Madrid to get set up with bikes and gear. The full sus bike I rode was set up well, and Kevin was sure to check that the suspension, seat height, drivetrain and over all fit were to my liking. Just one example of his great customer service.

    We hit the trails with a small group including Cowboy Joe from Mountain Cranks and had a blast. Joe and Kevin gave me good insight into what to expect in terms of the terrain, upcoming sections, and big climbs / descents to gear up for. They really know the trails very well.

    The riding around Madrid is excellent and will offer you a good hard ride (if you want to push yourself) and some variety. There are some steep climbs if you want them, as well as longer, more gradual climbs and descents. Kevin will tailor the ride to what you want. The terrain is interesting - almost sandy (in some sections, we were riding in a dried out riverbed) - and Kevin had great advice at the start of the ride about adjusting your braking. I had been concerned because it rained in Madrid for a day and a half prior to our ride, but this just tamped down the sand and made the conditions perfect.

    If you ride with Mountain Cranks in Madrid, you'll see interesting terrain, ride through acorn trees, pine forests, get amazing views of mountains, and occasionally share doubletrack with horseback riders. You'll also see other mountain bikers hitting the trails - tesament to the quality of the trails. Enjoy sections like Breakfast Lovers and 4 minutos :). All told, we rode about 30K in just under 2.5 hours (budget 5 hours for travel/setup/riding/breaks/winding down/return travel.

    I'd have to say, though, that the best part was just riding with Kevin and Joe. They are great guides and great people, very easy to get along with and have a chat with while zipping along the bike path back to Bike Zone.

    Kevin gave me a ride right back into central Madrid and gave me some great recommendations for the rest of my time in Madrid and other parts of Spain.

    Tha, Kevin, for an unforgettable day of mountain biking in Madrid!

    Thank you so much, Kevin for an unforgettable day of riding in Madrid.

    Kevin is a fantastic, service-oriented guy, who loves to bike and loves to share it with people. He is a very knowledgeable teacher; I learned alot during our ride, and he is more than happy to take the time with you. He's flexible, willing to adapt things to any skill or fitness level, and has all the gear to outfit the group. He knows all the trails like the back of his hand, for the whole Madrid area, and will customize your outing to suit your style of riding. Awesome guy, wonderful time and views. Highly recommended!

    We had just moved to Madrid from New Zealand and were hoping to experience what the Madrid mountain biking scene had to offer. It was a great experience! The experience was perfect and everything that we could have hoped for. It was great to experience mountain biking in Madrid with such a great guide.

    I wanted to get outside the city for a bit on my trip and explore the foothills on a bike. This provided exactly that and with a fantastic set of guides. The ride was tailored to me and Kevin added sections he felt comfortable taking me on as the day progressed. We ended up doing about 2-3 hours and Kevin always had a plan for the next section to hit. He went out of his way and even picked me up in the city where there have been recent restrictions with gas vehicles. I felt comfortable and welcomed for the entire event from pickup to drop off. I would absolutely recommend this for anyone trying to get a ride in while visiting Madrid.

    Travel to Madrid for museums, culture and tapas, but you are missing out if you don't enjoy the outdoors that Madrid is blessed with. Kevin has great bikes and is a fantastic guide and speaks English 100% fluent. My 2 sons and I showed up at the Repsol gas station where everything was provided and a 10 min ride later you are on some great trails. A ton of options. Don't miss your chance to see another side of Madrid and get some exercise to work off those tapas!

    Mountain Cranks completes a trip to Spain. The ride from start to finish is well organized. If you mountain bike at all this is a must for all levels. Just bring shoes and everything else is taken care of. The museums are good, but Mountain Cranks is what you will talk about the most.
