The picture to the left gives a little insight into the biking terrain surrounding HumbleBee Home.

It offers possibilities and challenges for all levels of bikers. There are tarmaced roads, dirt roads, tractor and goat tracks. The pictures below shows a couple of bikers in action on the roads and tracks around us and also climbing the mountain behind the village Valle de Abdalajís - a challenge only for the toughest.

Goat herds is a common thing to see around us and don't be surprised if you come around a bend and have to stop to let them cross the road. However, the goats are very disiplined and a few shouts from the shepherd and his dogs is all that is needed for them to move to the side so you can pass.
